The adrenal glands are important hormone-producing glands which lie just above the kidneys. They are composed of two distinct parts, the medulla and cortex. The adrenal medulla secretes the stress hormones adrenalin and noradrenalin. These hormones stimulate many of the body processes related to the “fight or flight” response. They also serve to maintain normal nervous control over many involuntary body functions such as heart rate, respiration, digestion and blood vessel tone. The adrenal cortex secretes a group of hormones called corticosteroids. These are formed from cholesterol and exert a profound effect on the metabolism of glucose, reduce inflammation and allergic reactions and affect proper mineral balance. The sex hormone dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is secreted by the adrenal cortex. While the adrenal glands are geared to cope with the constant demands placed on the body, sometimes too much stress may compromise them. With the right support, their function can be restored to normal. Adrenal gland support may be helpful in those individuals suffering with fatigue (especially chronic), stress, anxiety, chronic illness and allergy. Some of the signs of adrenal dysfunction include “surges” in energy levels alternating with a “stressed out” feeling, reduced resistance to infection, fatigue and digestive disturbances. Clinicians Adrenal Stress Support contains all the essential vitamin, mineral and botanical “adaptogens” known to support adrenal function.
