Do you feel run down or tired? Is getting up in the morning difficult? Do you spend most of the day tired, but get a boost of energy at night? If so, you may be experiencing adrenal fatigue.
The adrenal glands, located on top of the kidneys, are responsible for releasing hormones that affect your blood sugar, blood pressure, use of fats and protein, and control how we handle stress. Cortisol is the most commonly known hormone produced by the adrenal glands. Unlike other hormones, the adrenal hormones do not decrease as we age. Chronic stress is the underlying cause of adrenal dysfunction. Over time, chronically elevated cortisol levels lead to hormonal imbalances. Over 50% of women suffer from symptoms of hormonal imbalance that are rooted in stress.
