The adrenal glands are the primary organ system for handling the negative effects of emotional, mental and physical stress, including fatigue and muscular weakness.
Modern dietary habits and stressful lifestyles have a deleterious effect on the capabilities of the adrenal glands. Your level of energy, muscular strength, blood sugar levels and ability to respond to environmental stressors are all affected by adrenal function.
Certain hormones in the body—called stress hormones—prepare the body to deal with stressful situations by increasing the heart rate and the force of contraction and blood flow to the heart, liver, skeletal and adipose tissue.
These stress hormones are produced and regulated by the adrenal glands. They also dilate airways to the lungs and increase blood levels of glucose and fatty acids.
The adrenal hormones and their functions are linked to virtually all of the body systems. Thus, many physiological processes and bodily functions, including cardiovascular health, sex drive, pH balance, skin conditions, energy levels, mood and overall psychological outlook often correlate to adrenal gland function.
As a society, we are acutely exposed to stress, be it emotional, physical or mental. Work situations, family changes and obligations, changes in our bodies and in our health: all of these contribute to the stress demands on our bodies. As such we respond to stress in a similar fashion despite the source. Each time we are exposed to stress, our adrenal glands respond by producing certain stress hormones. With the amount of stress in most people’s lives, you would think our adrenal glands were of considerable size, but this is not the case.
Our adrenal glands weigh about 5 grams each and are located near our kidneys. For small glands, they plan an enormous role in our health. Since these glands work hard in these modem times, and function declines with age, supplying them with nutritional support may help maintain energy levels, alertness and stamina.
