Adrenal Health: Why is it so important to everyday life?

What are the adrenals?

 

The adrenals are two endocrine (hormone producing) glands located atop both of our kidneys. Although small in size, these glands have powerful effects on functions such as blood sugar control, electrolyte balance, immune and sex hormone balance, stress response, and many other important tasks. Unfortunately, there are multiple threats to the integrity of the adrenals that we are exposed to daily.
