What is adrenal fatigue?

Adrenal fatigue results when the adrenal glands function below their necessary level. Most commonly associated with intense or prolonged stress, it can also arise during or after acute or chronic infections, especially respiratory infections such as influenza, bronchitis or pneumonia. As the name suggests, its main symptom is fatigue that is not relieved by sleep.  You may look and act relatively normal with adrenal fatigue and may not have any obvious signs of physical illness, yet you live with a general sense of unwellness, tiredness or "gray" feelings. People experiencing adrenal fatigue often have to use coffee, colas and other stimulants to get going in the morning and to prop themselves up during the day.

Adrenal fatigue can wreak havoc with your life. In the more serious cases, the activity of the adrenal glands is so diminished that you may have difficulty getting out of bed for more than a few hours per day. With each increment of reduction in adrenal function, every organ and system in your body is more profoundly affected. Changes occur in your carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism, fluid and electrolyte balance, heart and cardiovascular system, and even sex drive. Many other alterations take place at the biochemical and cellular levels in response to and to compensate for the decrease in adrenal hormones that occurs with adrenal fatigue. 

Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue:

Composition of Adrenal Fast:

Liquorice root is an anti-stress herb known to increase energy, endurance, and vitality and act as a mild tonic. Liqourice is known to naturally fortify cortisone levels and it has been used to help decrease symptoms of hypoglycemia, a common side effect of decreased adrenal function. It causes increased production of aldosterone, a hormone that is frequently deficient in advanced Adrenal Fatigue.

Ashwaganda an adaptogenic herb, regulates various systems in our bodies. If cortisol is too high, it acts to lower it. If cortisol is too low, it acts to raise it. Ashwagandha is the most calming and the best for treating stress-related fatigue accompanied by symptoms of anxiety.

Astragalus root (A. membranaceus). Your body has a natural ability to adapt to stress, but sometimes this is not enough. Astragalus boosts your body's capabilities to handle stress, gives your immune system a healthy boost, regulates normal blood sugar levels and alleviates insulin resistance.  

Eleuthero root (Eleutherococcus senticosus, also known as Siberian ginseng). As discussed before, Eleuthero is an adaptogenic herb helps to protect our bodies from the debilitating effects of stress, reduces fatigue, assists in clarity of memory aids in balancing blood sugar levels, and even perhaps supporting bone remodeling as well. 

Rhodiola root. The roots known as Arctic Root, are fabled to be responsible for the extraordinary strength and Rhodiola endurance of the ancient Vikings. Recent research has confirmed Rhodiola’s ability to act as a natural adaptogen, reducing physical and mental fatigue related to chronic stress. A study in individuals diagnosed with stress-related fatigue syndrome found that Rhodiola extract twice a day for 28 days significantly reduced fatigue compared to placebo. The rhodiola treatment also corrected the subjects’ morning cortisol levels and significantly improved their scores on tests of attention and memory. Other clinical trials using Rhodiola have also found statistically significant reductions in fatigue and improvements in many fatigue-related areas, such as physical fitness, concentration, mental performance, sleep patterns, motivation, mood, and general well-being. Rhodiola is safe; it does not interact with other drugs or cause adverse effects.
