Natural Adrenal Booster

What is Adrenal Fatigue?

The term “adrenal fatigue” was coined in 1998 by James Wilson, PhD, a naturopath and expert in alternative medicine. He describes it as a “group of related signs and symptoms (a syndrome) that results when the adrenal glands function below the necessary level.” He says it’s usually associated with intense stress and often follows chronic infections like bronchitis, flu, or pneumonia.

What are the Symptoms?

What happens when the adrenal glands stop producing hormones efficiently? Every bodily function is affected, and as adrenal hormone levels ebb and flow abnormally, even the normal “get-up-and-go” you get from them disappears. Adrenal fatigue symptoms include:

  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Chronic fatigue (always feeling tired)
  • Brain fog
  • Hair loss
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Weakened stress response
  • Insulin resistance
  • Lightheadedness
  • Decreased sex drive/libido
  • Moodiness and irritability
  • Depression
  • Muscle or bone loss
  • Skin ailments
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Weight gain
  • Sweet and salty food cravings
