Are you feeling stressed, exhausted, or burnt out?

The adrenal glands are our primary “stress” glands that sit on top of our kidneys and release cortisol (our main stress hormone) in response to stressors.

The adrenal glands rely on proper communication from the brain to regulate proper cortisol release, a complicated hormonal feedback system termed the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis (or HPA Axis).
