The hormones cortisol, estrogen, and testosterone are secreted by the adrenal glands, which reside on top of the kidneys.
These hormones affect the body in a myriad of ways, including in regard to weight distribution, allergic reactions, and sexual traits.
Intense or long periods of emotional and/or physical stress along with various illnesses can cause Adrenal Fatigue.
When this happens, it severely inhibits the body’s ability to reduce allergic and harmful reactions, like cancer and autoimmune disorders. Cortisol and similar hormones directly affect the use of carbohydrates, fats, cardiovascular function, gastrointestinal function, and the translation of fats and proteins into energy. Appropriate adrenal support is fundamental to facilitate the proper hormonal structure for optimal wellness and requires correct nutrition, adequate sleep, habitual exercise, stress management, and supplementation of any deficient adrenal hormones.
