The adrenal glands rest just above the kidneys. These glands secrete cortisol, and stimulate our bodies to produce progesterone and testosterone, among other hormones. Adrenal fatigue occurs when the adrenal glands function below normal levels. Stress can cause adrenal fatigue. There are a variety of supplements, including vitamins, minerals and hormones recommended to ease adrenal fatigue. Information about supplements and recommendations cited are from James Balch, M.D., author of Prescription for Natural Healing, Avery, New York: 2000.
Adrenal fatigue can have any of a number of symptoms. Signs to watch for include but are not limited to increased cravings for salt, heightened PMS, depleted energy and lessened sex drive.
