Adrenal Gland

The Adrenal Glands consist of two parts: The adrenal cortex and the adrenal medulla. The two glands sit on top of the kidneys and they are made up of two distinct parts.

  • The Adrenal Cortex is the outer part of the gland which produces hormones that’s vital to your life. Cortisol is produced in the adrenal gland and it helps regulate your metabolism and also helps your body respond to stress. Aldosterone is also produced in the adrenal gland and it helps your body control its blood pressure.
  • The Adrenal Medulla is the inner part of the adrenal gland. It produces nonessential hormones such as adrenaline which isn’t needed for you to live. Your body uses adrenaline to help you react to stress.

Adrenals--You need them!

The adrenals have several jobs. They make aldosterone to manage our sodium and potassium. They produce DHEA to help manage our immunity. They make cortisol for glucose regulation and anti-inflammatory effects. They also produce adrenalin and nor-epinephrine for our sympathetic stress in the autonomic nervous system.

Did you know that you can push them too far with caffeine, alcohol and sugar? Skipping breakfast does not help either!

Did you know that women in menopause even need them to help produce estrogen? Did you know that hyper-function of the adrenals can affect insulin sensitivity?

If you have trouble getting to sleep or are waking up at night, it could be your adrenals.
