Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal glands are the triangle shaped endocrine glands that sit above the kidneys. They are responsible for regulating the stress response. Stress causes the body to release cortisol from the adrenal gland. When exposed to chronic stress over long periods of time, our adrenals pump out more cortisol causing adrenal fatigue.
