Adrenal Glands, Stress, and How You Feel
A major function of your adrenal glands is their responsibility for helping your body to cope with stress. Your survival under stress is depends to a great extent on the performance of your adrenals and if they are compromised by severe and continual stressful conditions, then they could fail, leading to an extremely dangerous condition.
The greater part of your adrenal glands is devoted to producing hormones such as androgens, mineral corticoids and glucocorticoids, the most important of the glucocorticoids being cortisol. This hormone is what enables your body to cope with stress, and if your adrenals fail to produce it, a condition known as adrenal fatigue sets in that causes a general feeling of fatigue and malaise that can affect every organ in your body and severely affect your quality of life.
Among the treatments for adrenal fatigue are the herbal substances known as schizandra and andrographis. Schizandra is an ancient Chinese herbal remedy for adrenal fatigue and stress, and can be used to keep you free of stress and maintain maximum adrenal health even when you are stress. Andrographis is an Indian Ayurvedic treatment, believed to stimulate the adrenals and keep them going when you are stressed. Either one of these two ancient remedies can keep you going during periods of stress and help prevent the very serious condition known as adrenal fatigue.
If you are experiencing fatigue throughout the day, maybe its your adrenal glands? support their proper function with herbs like schizandra and andrographis and feel better!
