The adrenal glands are responsible for the production of the stress hormone cortisol, the “flight or fight” hormone which helps you deal with stress. When you are under stress, your adrenal glands raise your cortisol levels. This is a normal and healthy response to occasional stress. However, problems arise when the adrenal glands are constantly being stimulated to release stress hormones. Eventually, fatigue sets in, and the overused adrenals can’t keep up and they stop producing enough hormones for you to be able to cope with stress. Adrenal fatigue can produce a variety of symptoms, including high levels of fatigue, trouble sleeping, food cravings, brain fog, weight gain, and cold intolerance.
Along with lifestyle changes, Naturologie’s adrenal support formulations can help promote healthy cortisol function, facilitate a healthy adrenal response, and support overall adrenal health and function.
