Are you aware of the important role that your adrenal system plays in your health and fat loss? Do you realize that what you may believe to be symptoms of menopause or andropause, may actually be an issue related to poor adrenal health. Without a healthy adrenal system, you may not be able to achieve relief from these symptoms.
I learned about this important issue when listening to the NaturaPause program which includes 6 audios on the topic of hormone health and devotes over an hour of audio time and dozens of pages on how you can restore your adrenal health and be on your way to relief.
For now, let’s cover two of the basics, which are physical rest and natural supplementation…
Your adrenal glands are the front-line defense against stress-related symptoms and illnesses. In addition, their proper function is critical to your hormone health.
The best way to support adrenal gland function is simply to rest. You must take time to allow your parasympathetic nervous system to work its magic.
However, certain herbs and nutrients can also support healthy adrenal function. Vitamin C, ginseng (Panax spp), andrhodiola (Rhodiola rosea) have all been shown to provide powerful, natural support.
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study conducted in Germany, researchers found that 3 grams of vitamin C in divided, sustained-release dosages kept blood pressure, anxiety and cortisol production under control after a stressful situation.
Combined with ginseng (Panax) and Rhodiola rosea, vitamin C makes a powerful adrenal support vitamin.
As always, check with your doctor for exact dosages.
There are many other tools and strategies for the relief of menopause, andropause, perimenopause and symptoms of fatigue covered in the NaturaPause program.
