The adrenal glands help us deal with stress. When we are doing too much, not eating well or not getting adequate rest, the adrenals become exhausted. We need our adrenals to function optimally because they are our back-up hormone system when our ovaries take a much-needed rest. Women who have exhausted adrenals have terrible menopausal symptoms. The adrenals make cortisol, their stress hormone, as well as progesterone, DHEA, testosterone and estrogen. ADRENAsmart works fast to aid adrenal function.
