The adrenal glands produce hormones that support our bodies in dealing with mental and physical stress, and secrete chemicals involved in nutrient metabolism and energy production. Chronic anxiety, nervous tension, and other types of stress may lead to an excess production of cortisol, a hormone involved in the stress response. Excess intake of caffeine and sugar can worsen stress and lead to adrenal “fatigue.” All of these factors combined together can build up, resulting in an abnormal stress response, low energy, and poor immune function. The adrenal glands rely on a variety of nutrients to support their function and produce the hormones that support the response to physical and emotional stress. These include tyrosine, vitamin B6, pantothenic acid and vitamin C. The adaptogenic herbs Rhodiola rosea, Ashwagandha, and Eleuthero as well as the herbs Licorice root, Astragalus, Gotu Kola, and Schizandra all provide a synergistic effect by supporting normal, healthy adrenal function, supporting healthy cortisol and energy levels, managing the negative effects of stress on the body and contributing to an overall feeling of well-being.
