Adrenal glands are located on top of the kidneys, and they produce hormones like cortisol, aldosterone, testosterone, epinephrine, and norepinephrine.
When adrenal glands produce too many, or not enough, hormones, it can result in adrenal insufficiency, Addison's disease, adrenleukodystrophy, aldosteronism, or adrenal hyerplasia. Excessive stress may lead to adrenal fatigue.
Adrenal glands rely on nutritional elements like vitamin C, B-complex vitamins, magnesium, zinc, and chromium for optimal functioning.
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient and water soluble vitamin that is critical for adrenal function. Pantothenic acid is a B vitamin that supports adrenal function. Licorice is an herbal folk remedy with a traditional history of adrenal support.
