A part of our body that is really important are our adrenal glands. They are very small and are positioned on top of our kidneys. We need them for a proper production of hormones and a great and healthy kidney function. They’re especially responsible for our sex and stress hormones (testosteroneand estrogen).
Our adrenal glands are responsible for the releasing of several hormones, like for example, adrenaline and steroids. They strengthen our immunity, regulate our blood pressure, improve our metabolic rate, etc. We also manage stress with them better.
In case of adrenal fatigue, our organism has a decreased number of hormones which have an effect on any part of our body. In case it isn’t treated, it leads to the appearance of adrenal insufficiency.
These are some of the most common signs of adrenal fatigue:
Chronic emotional and body fatigue
Memory lossand brain fog
Dry skinand/or brittle nails
Depression and anxiety
Chronic muscle painor body aches
Low blood pressure
Unexplained weight gainor loss
Low sex drive
