Your adrenal glands are two triangular-shaped glands that sit at the top of your kidneys and secrete hormones in your body. The adrenal cortex, or outer part of the gland, produces cortisol which helps regulate metabolism and your body’s response to stress. It also produces aldosterone which helps to regulate blood pressure. The adrenal medulla, or inner part is responsible for producing adrenaline, which triggers the “fight or flight” response in your body during times of stress.
When should you reach for adrenal support?
Stress is something that we all experience from time to time. But prolonged periods of stress can really take a toll on your adrenals. Chronic stress puts a high demand on the adrenal glands and taxes them to the point of exhaustion. They then run out of energy and resources to meet the body’s needs.
When your adrenal glands aren’t secreting the right amount of hormones to keep levels elevated, they may need some support. Some signs of adrenal fatigue include low energy, body aches, low blood pressure, unexplained weight loss, lightheadedness, and skin discolouration or hyperpigmentation.
