Solutions for Adrenal Fatigue
What is Adrenal Fatigue?
Do you suffer from all day adrenal fatigue?
Are you dizzy upon rising and have low blood pressure?
Are your depressed and have a flat affect to life?
Do you abuse the snooze button, only to then rely on caffeine and sugar to get you through your day?
Is exercise and recovery from exercise quite difficult for you?
Do you suffer from low libido?
Do you crave carbs, salt and sugar?
If this describes some or all of your symptoms, you are likely experiencing the effects of stress or even perhaps adrenal dysfunction or adrenal fatigue.
When the body is under any type of stress, cortisol, the principal stress hormone is released. When the body is under chronic stress, cortisol is elevated beyond normal circadian rhythms. If high cortisol levels are left unrelated or ignored, the adrenal glands will eventually fatigue and decrease cortisol output. The resulting condition is known as adrenal fatigue and it can be debilitating to one’s health and quality of life.
Chronic stress and the resulting negative health issues are becoming a nationwide epidemic. It is estimated that 75-90% of chronic health conditions are related to stress and altered cortisol levels. The health risks associated with chronic stress include high blood pressure and cardiovascular diseases, thyroid disease, inflammation, allergies, depression, sleep disturbances, and altered metabolism. As you can see chronic stress can wreak havoc on the body.
Full Adrenal Support
The health of your adrenal glands is absolutely vital to your wellbeing and overall performance. They play a huge role in producing the hormones we need, particularly during times of stress.
Rigorous training and cardiovascular activity tends to strain the adrenal glands and may prevent them from functioning optimally. And in the effects of dieting, not enough water or sleep, caffeine, the stimulants found in pre-workouts and adrenal function may be impaired further… leaving your weight loss at a standstill and shooting your cortisol levels through the roof.
Because strong adrenal support is key for athletes on multiple levels, MuscleSport developed Adrenal Revolution; a full adrenal support formula that can help reduce adrenal fatigue, minimize stress, and decrease stimulant tolerance. We accomplished this by using a few key ingredients such as:
Ashwagandha Root – an adaptogen that helps the body deal with physical, emotional and psychological stressors.
Vitamin C – a powerful antioxidant that may also reduce cortisol levels and offer neuroprotective effects.
Rhodiola Rosea Root Extract – supports the neurological mechanisms of dealing with stress.
Tyrosine – A direct precursor to thyroxine and to the neurotransmitters dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine; Tyrosine may lower stress levels and improve overall mood.
