June 2021, Adrenal Support

The adrenal glands are situated on each of the kidneys and serve as the master glands for the endocrine system. The major function of the adrenal glands is to govern how we react to stress. The adrenal glands produce a number of hormones, particularly cortisol and neurotransmitters like adrenaline. The ability to rapidly produce these hormones provides us the means to escape imminent danger. This “fight or flight” response is a protective mechanism which provides humans with the energy and resources to either defend ourselves or flee from danger.

Studies indicate that 75-90 percent of patient visits to primary care physicians are due to the adverse effects of stress on our health.Several nutritional supplements have been shown to be helpful in supporting and restoring the adrenals. Adaptogens such as Ashwagandha Extract and Relora are specific nutrients which help support the adrenals.
