Adrenal Fatigue

We all have two adrenal glands – one on top of each kidney. The adrenal glands are responsible for releasing hormones like cortisol and adrenaline into our bloodstream to help us cope with stress. When we are under prolonged stress without relief, the adrenal glands become exhausted and are unable to protect us from burnout.

  • Everything seems like a chore

The symptoms of adrenal fatigue can be decreased significantly and in some cases eliminated, through a nutritious diet, stress management, and a blend of supplements that support and restore adrenal function. The adrenal glands and the thyroid work very closely together. When adrenal fatigue goes untreated, low thyroid function is common.
