Adrenal Gland Hormones – Essential For Life
Chronic stress is the underlying cause of adrenal fatigue. The adrenal glands release a very important hormone, used to manage stress called Cortisol, which is critical for life and the key to normal physical composition and emotional stress responses. Unlike other hormones in our body the adrenal hormones generally do not decrease with age. Called the “stress hormone,” Cortisol levels rise when emotional stress is increased or emergencies occur. When the adrenal glands are weak, we no longer view stress as a challenge, we view it as a threat. Weak adrenals set the stage toward illness and disease.
In today‘s society, women are inundated with stress, whether physical, psychological or both -stress that doesn‘t let up. Excessive and chronic excretion of Cortisol over time, will eventually exhaust the adrenal glands, resulting in lower Cortisol production. This insidious cycle can cause premature aging of tissues and total “body burnout.” Over time, chronically elevated Cortisol levels, due to persistent stress, leads to hormonal imbalance that affects all the other hormones in the body, producing the symptoms many women experience symptoms such as body fat accumulation, increased blood sugars, fatigue, bone loss, decreased sex drive and immune system deficiencies. Once the adrenals become depleted, it can lead to adrenal exhaustion and much more serious health concerns.a chain-like reaction resulting in.
Adrenal fatigue is a condition in which the adrenal glands, because of chronic stress, are unable to keep up with your body‘s increased demands for Cortisol production. They simply become exhausted resulting in subnormal Cortisol production.
