For almost everyone, 2020 was a doozy of a year. We can be excused for perhaps relying on a little too much caffeine and sugar to get through the stress, anxiety, and fatigue of enduring a global pandemic. However, most of us undoubtedly still feel the toll that the year took on our bodies. If you still feel tired from the last year, there may be an explanation – and even better, a way to feel (and perform) better in 2021. The answer may lie in adrenal supplements – read on to learn more from the experts at Gaspar’s Best!
Explaining Adrenal Fatigue
The term “adrenal fatigue” has been used to explain a group of symptoms that are said to occur in people who are under long-term mental, emotional, or physical stress. You may be more likely to develop this condition if, for example, you have a stressful job; are a shift worker, working student, or single parent; or if you abuse alcohol or drugs.
Symptoms of adrenal fatigue include tiredness, trouble falling asleep at night or waking up in the morning, salt and sugar craving, and needing stimulants like caffeine to get through the day.
The problem begins when many different life stresses become too much for the body to handle. Our adrenal glands-small organs located above the kidneys-usually deal with stress by producing hormones like cortisol. When people are faced with long-term stress – say, a global pandemic – their adrenal glands cannot keep up with the body’s need for these hormones. It is when this happens that symptoms of adrenal fatigue may appear.
Supplements for Adrenal Fatigue
Thankfully, there are several supplements you can take to help support your adrenal function and heal from the craziness of the past year.
