Chronic stress can affect your body’s ability to recuperate from physical, mental or emotional stress.
Because the adrenals influence many parts of the body, symptoms of adrenal fatigue can mimic a number of disorders and isn’t always easily recognizable. Adrenal fatigue symptoms can include symptoms such as brain fog, poor concentration, lethargy, moodiness and trouble sleeping. If you have adrenal fatigue, it can have significant effects on your overall health. Fortunately, you can improve this common issue naturally by focusing on your nutrient-intake and lifestyle choices. Over-stimulation of the adrenals by long-term stress could lead to an inconsistent level of cortisol (the stress hormone) in the bloodstream.
What Are Your Adrenal Glands?
Your adrenal glands (adrenals) are two thumb-sized organs that sit above your kidneys and are part of the endocrine system. Also known as the suprarenal glands, they’re involved in producing over 50 hormones that drive almost every bodily function, many of which are essential for life.The adrenal glands work closely with the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland in a system known as the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA axis). Adrenal glands play a huge role in stress response. Your adrenal glands are also responsible for balancing hormones.
