Energy/ Adrenals (77 products)

 

The adrenal glands are two, triangle-shaped endocrine glands that sit on top of each kidney. They produce the hormones that are involved in controlling your blood pressure, metabolism and your body’s response to stress. They are part of the HPA axis.

 

The adrenal glands mainly make adrenaline, noradrenaline, cortisol and aldosterone.

 

Adrenaline and noradrenaline are involved in your body’s stress (or ‘fight or flight’) response.

 

Cortisol influences the metabolism, changing blood sugar levels and slowing down the immune system.

 

When chronic stress and the constant demands of work and family take over, the body’s ability to recuperate from physical, mental or emotional stress can be impaired. The body can show signs of adrenal fatigue. Adrenal fatigue symptoms include extreme fatigue, brain fog, weight gain, insulin resistance.

 

Adrenal Fatigue is a 21st Century Stress Syndrome, proposed as a new condition in 1998 by Dr. James L. Wilson, a naturopath and chiropractor. His assumption was that an overstimulation of the adrenal glands by chronic stress over time could lead to an inconsistent level of cortisol (the stress hormone) in the bloodstream, sometimes far more than normal and at other times, far too low. Today naturopaths and Doctors will refer to adrenal fatigue as HPA Axis Dysregulation.

 

Considering HPA dysregulation is affected by largely by lifestyle and exposure to chronic stress, naturopathic medicine can offer very valuable solutions. Adrenal support supplements will often include adaptogenic herbs that may help to lower cortisol levels and mediate stress responses within the body.

 

Adrenal fatigue supplements will include nutrients and herbs for adrenal hormone production, energy production and stress adaptation.

 

Amino acids, Minerals and Vitamins for adrenal fatigue include tyrosine, phenylalanine, magnesium Vitamin C and B complex.

 

Herbal medicine supplements for fatigue and adrenal support include liquorice, rehmania, ashwagandha, ginseng, rhodiola, Schisandra and holy basil.
