Adrenal Glands

Drs. Gargin and Moosavi

Your adrenal glands sit just above your kidneys. They secrete more than 50 kinds of hormones necessary for life, energy production, fat storage and fluid balance. Contribution factors to adrenal fatique can include: Elevated levels of cortisol due to stress, persistent use of stimulants found in energy drinks, caffeine and fat burners, diets abundant in sugars and processed carbs, too much chemical stress from food substitutes and above normal amounts of emotional or mental stress.
