In todays world, we have so many artificial energy boosters and stimulants available that provide only a quick fix for energy. The problem that I see with these items, is that we are left with the crashing effects and over time it weakens the adrenal glands to the degree that we have to keep going back for more in order to feel that same level energy. Basically it inhibits the adrenals natural ability to provide us with our natural energy.
A quick breakdown of the adrenal glands:
The adrenal glands are one of the most important glands in the body along with the pituitary. They control our autonomic nervous system that produce neurotransmitters, which are essential for brain and nerve function. They also produce what is known as cortisol. Cortisol aids in the conversion of fat and protein to glucose and it also mediates inflammation. Key word here- Inflammation!
Some of you may of heard that inflammation is said to be a silent killer and most don’t even realize what is going on until something comes back negative at the doctor.
Over time the adrenal glands can become weakened from an acidic diet, caffeine, tea consumption, stimulants and stress. This can cause some turmoil in the body and send a message to the adrenal glands to increase cortisol production, which can cause further inflammation to occur in the body. The idea is to have a balanced lifestyle that includes plenty of alkaline foods, little to no caffeine and plenty of rest and R&R.
