Sitting on top of the kidney, the adrenal glands are responsible for producing and regulating important hormones in the body. When in ‘fight or flight’ mode the adrenal glands kick into gear producing adrenaline to assist the body in its reaction to stress. Additionally, when you have stubborn weight that won’t budge, it might be caused by an over production of the hormone cortisol, which is also produced in the adrenal glands.
Research has shown that stress is directly related to a number of ailments, including cardiac problems. When stress levels rise continuously, the adrenal glands work overtime which can sometimes result in ‘adrenal exhaustion’. This leads to fatigue, suppressed immune system, salt, sugar or fat cravings, and sometimes depression.
