Let’s talk about testing your adrenals. Here’s a quick introduction to the concept of adrenal testing. If you have unexplained symptoms, like feeling wiped out, faint, bouts of insomnia, poor stress tolerance, or anxiety, it is worth it to screen your adrenal function.
Is adrenal fatigue a real thing? Is it the culprit behind some of your most frustrating chronic symptoms? Do low levels of cortisol mean that your body is unable to make cortisol? The balance and rhythm of your cortisol levels are immensely important to your health and can be one of the biggest predictors of your longevity and wellbeing, but regulating your cortisol levels can be an unnecessarily frustrating journey with misinformation at every turn.
If you are tired or have been generally concerned about your adrenals, then Adrenal Energy is a good fit for you. The normal dosage is two capsules each morning (with breakfast).
