What is adrenal fa­tigue?

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Plant's With A Purpose -

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.
