Hola! Everyone has had a stressful day every now and again, right? What happens when your body is in a chronic state of stress? That’s right, stress does not only affect your day, it affects your body also! Stress can affect every system of your body: your cardiovascular, respiratory, musculoskeletal, gastrointestinal, reproductive and endocrine systems. As you’ve probably guessed already, the topic of our conversation today is going to be about how stress affects your endocrine system; specifically, your adrenal glands.
The job of your adrenal glands is to help produce adrenaline and other hormones when your body is in “fight or flight mode”. (“Fight or flight mode” is just a fancy saying for when your body is differentiating between whether the situation presented is perceived as non-threatening or perceived harmful.) So, when you are feeling stressed your body has to work harder to keep you calm. When your body works harder, it can start to wear out. Too much stress can cause your adrenal glands to not work properly resulting in you feeling worn down and tired. These hormones play an important part in many different aspects of your body’s function; they control things like: blood sugar levels, carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism.
So, there are multiple adrenal glands, as you may have guessed from me referring to them in the plural. There are 2 adrenal glands, to be exact, and they are located above the Kidneys (which are located in your middle back- in case you were wondering). You have one adrenal gland for each Kidney. The word ‘rene’ (ad-RENE-al) is a Latin word meaning Kidney (hence their location). Not only are they located above your Kidneys, but they also help with the function of your Kidneys. When your adrenal glands are improperly functioning, it can cause some major issues for your body. The Stress and Adrenal Support supplement is designed to help control fluctuations in hormones due to stress and protect weakened adrenal glands.
There are many different symptoms of adrenal fatigue. Certain symptoms may not be as obvious as others. Midday fatigue may seem like a normal part of your day, but it could be a sign that your adrenal glands are not functioning properly. Below is a list of other symptoms associated with Adrenal fatigue:
- waking up in the middle of the night
- inability to fall asleep
- cravings for sweet or salty food
- low libido or sex drive
- Midday fatigue
- Poor Digestion
- Reduced tolerance for stress
- Menopause symptoms
