Story at-a-glance -

  • Your adrenal glands secrete more than 50 hormones, including aldosterone (which helps regulate your blood pressure), cortisol and adrenaline, the latter two of which can become overactivated by stress
  • Exposure to chronic inflammation or long-term illness can result in hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis dysfunction, triggering symptoms associated with “adrenal fatigue”
  • Adaptogenic herbs can be useful if you’re struggling with persistent stress. Four of the most well-recognized adaptogens for adrenal support are ashwagandha, rhodiola, ginseng (Asian and Siberian) and tulsi
