What is adrenal fatigue?
When you get stressed, the adrenal glands release hormones like cortisol, adrenaline and norepinephrine. These regulate the stress response and allow an increase in strength, focus and awareness when it is needed. However under prolonged stress, the adrenals become fatigued and struggle to release these hormones in the necessary amounts. People with adrenal fatigue will often report a lack of enthusiasm, apathy and disinterest, irritability and anxiety.
