Tired and stressed? Re-centre with Adrenal Support
Stress can cause a wide range of health problems including depression, anxiety and even high blood pressure. But sometimes, we aren’t even aware we’re suffering with it, or why. If you’re feeling unbalanced, lethargic and in need of a boost, you could be experiencing adrenal fatigue.
What’s the adrenal system?
The adrenal system consists of two glands that sit on top of your kidneys. They have two parts.
The first is the adrenal cortex. This produces hormones we need to live, such as cortisol, which helps to regulate your metabolism and your ability to deal with stress.
The second is the adrenal medulla. This produces hormones we don’t need to live, such as adrenaline, which also helps your body react to stress.
What’s adrenal fatigue?
Your adrenal system helps you to react to stressful situations, and when it’s not working properly, you may feel symptoms such as body aches, fatigue and nervousness.
How can you support it?
Firstly, to help maintain good health, you should follow a balanced diet with plenty of vegetables, lean protein and whole grain carbohydrates. Avoid foods you’re sensitive to and make sure you stay hydrated.
You should ensure you’re well-rested, and focus on your wellbeing with relaxing, gentle activities such as yoga and meditation.
You can also boost your diet with herbal supplements like the Nutramedix Adrenal Support drops, containing these adaptogenic plants that contribute towards the body’s stress resistance and energy levels:
