The adrenal glands are two glands that sit on top of your kidneys that are made up of two distinct parts.
Adrenal Health is a wonderful formula that supports, strengthens and helps rebuild fatigued adrenal glands. It will also help with energy, help reduce stress levels, and will even help people lose unhealthy inches and pounds around the middle.
When an individual experiences stress for a prolonged time, the adrenal glands begin to produce excess cortisol. This “cortisol connection” to weight gain is quickly becoming an epidemic in our country.
Excess cortisol doesn’t only affect weight gain. It can increase blood sugar and blood pressure levels, and decrease immune response and other issues. It is very obvious that excess cortisol is not good for the body.
It is important to understand, as well, that use of many of the prescription drugs available today (including diuretics and estrogen hormone therapy) can lead to increased cortisol levels.
Holy Basil (Ocimum sanctum) herb is wonderful for nourishing and supporting the adrenal gland. Research shows that it includes the potent COX-2 inhibiting anti-inflammatories. COX-2 is an inflammatory enzyme that triggers arthritic type pain. It balances hormones and helps maintain healthy cortisol levels.
