Energy + Immunity
The adrenal glands produce DHEA, which is a precursor to many of our body’s hormones, including estrogen and testosterone. The adrenal glands also produce hormones that regulate blood sugar, reduce inflammation, and influence involuntary functions like heart rate, digestion and respiration.
As we age, the adrenal glands atrophy, with stress and poor nutrition accelerating this aging process. Chronic stress can also overwork the adrenal glands and lead to adrenal fatigue and poor adrenal function. This can be detrimental to your hormonal health and lead to symptoms like brain fog, fatigue, food cravings, and cascade of other health issues.
Adaptogens are substances that help to protect your body from the harmful effects of stress and support a healthy balance in major glands associated with stress response.
Ashwagandha is one of nature’s most powerful adaptogens. It contains two biologically active compounds, withaferin-A and withanone, that have been shown in numerous studies to reduce stress, calm the brain, reduce inflammation, increase energy, support adrenal health and encourage hormonal balance.
