Adrenal fatigue: Do you have night-time energy with an overuse of caffeine in the day?


Naturopath, Georga Holt said adrenal fatigue occurs when the adrenal glands are overworked through long-term stress and exhaustion, which could lead to hormonal imbalances.

The adrenal glands, which sits on top of each kidney, are responsible for producing essential hormones including cortisol (stress), adrenaline and sex hormones.

However, when our bodies are faced with long-term stress, our adrenals are “burning out” because it’s constantly releasing more cortisol to keep up with the body’s needs.

A person’s adrenal glands produce a variety of hormones that are essential to life.

The medical term “adrenal insufficiency” refers to inadequate production of one or more of these hormones as a result of an underlying disease or surgery.
