Your adrenal glands are two triangular shaped glands that sit at the top of your kidneys and secrete hormones in your body.
The adrenal cortex, or outer part of the gland, produces cortisol which helps regulate metabolism and your body’s response to stress, and aldosterone which helps regulate blood pressure. The adrenal medulla, or inner part produces adrenaline, which is responsible for triggering the “fight or flight” response in your body in times of stress.
When your adrenal glands aren’t secreting the right amount of hormones to keep levels elevated, you may need to seek support. Some signs of adrenal fatigue include low energy, body aches, low blood pressure, unexplained weight loss, lightheadedness and skin discolouration or hyperpigmentation.
Your adrenal glands can be worked overtime, too. Chronic stress puts a high demand on the adrenals and taxes them to the point of exhaustion. They then run out of energy and resources to meet the body’s needs.
