Support for the Adrenal Glands

Stress is a major topic of conversation in the medical community these days.  We are quickly learning how detrimental high stress levels can be for our health.  Among many other functions, the adrenal glands in the body are intended to help internally adapt to different environmental stresses we are faced with. The adrenal glands are small structures that sit on top of our kidneys and release different hormones such as adrenal, epinephrine, and cortisol, depending on the body’s needs.  Many of these hormones are intended to be released only intermittently as a person senses danger.  In today’s world, however, we are constantly battling elevated stress levels which causes increased demand on the adrenal glands… and they can only handle so much!  Once the adrenal glands have been working overtime for too long, signs of adrenal exhaustion begin to show up.  Some of these signs and symptoms include the following: insomnia, chronic fatigue, exercise intolerance, brain fog, dry skin, joint pain, inability to lose weight, etc.  Body Logic will be holding a presentation specifically regarding Adrenal Health later this month.  Check out our upcoming events and sign up today!

Besides the need to improve stress management skills there is nutritional support available to assist the adrenal glands and their function.  We are highlighting two products this month showing the range of support available.  It is highly recommended that you speak with one of the doctors to discuss what may be best for you.
