Located at the top of each kidney, the adrenal glands produce a variety of hormones that help the body to regulate blood pressure, control blood sugar, burn fat and protein, and react to stressors.
- A high stress lifestyle and poor diet can strain the adrenal glands overtime
- Symptoms of low adrenal function include exhaustion, anxiety, feeling foggy, poor concentration, and salt cravings
- A high nutrient diet, sea salt, and relaxation techniques can help to strengthen the adrenals
- B vitamins, magnesium, and adaptogenic herbs like rhodiola and ashwagandha are adrenal supportive supplements.
