Ashwagandha for Adrenal Support and Hormonal Relief
If you are struggling with menopause, hormone imbalances, or even adrenal fatigue - you need to know about an incredible herbal remedy, Ashwagandha! This powerful medicinal herb has been used in India for over 3,000 years and is particularly good at supporting the adrenal glands and providing relief from menopause symptoms.
Functions of the Adrenal Glands
Men and women cannot balance their hormones if their adrenal glands are not functioning optimally. These two tiny glands are situated on top of the kidneys and play a vital role in balancing the entire endocrine/hormonal system of the body. The adrenal glands are also responsible for producing hormones such as DHEA, cortisol, aldosterone and adrenaline.
Did you know that your adrenal glands take over some of the functions of your ovaries when women start going through menopause? As their hormone production declines and it becomes the responsibility of the adrenal glands to take over some of the roles of the failing ovaries. But if the adrenals are already stressed due to our daily pressures they will not be able to cope with these extra responsibilities. Therefore, we must support and nourish these 2 very small but vital glands.
Your adrenals also work with your pituitary gland to regulate the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone, and they also regulate hormone production in other parts of the body. When your adrenals are functioning at their best, they help the hypothalamus in your brain to produce hormones that will help you maintain a healthy weight and regulate your body’s stress response having a major impact on your emotional and physical health.
