Stress is commonplace in today’s society. Everyone has an appointment, meetings, unpleasant traffic, and other unfortunate circumstances that gets under our skin. When this happens, our adrenal glands release hormones and neurotransmitters, like cortisol and epinephrine. Cortisol is the “stress” hormone, and epinephrine is adrenaline – the “fight or flight” hormone.
Cortisol and epinephrine are also released during exercise (a physical stress), after drinking coffee or other stimulants, and other seemingly positive actions. Over time, our adrenal glands tire out and produce insufficient quantities, decreasing our ability to maintain a healthy weight, focus, and have adequate energy levels.
