Adrenal Function & HPA Axis
The HPA Axis is short for "Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis".
Stress impacts and signals your brain, which then tells your Adrenal glands to produce the stress hormone - CORTISOL.
Chronic stress can impact overall Cortisol levels, which can cause symptoms such as:
- Low Mood
- Mid-Section Weight Gain
- Crashing afternoon energy
- Irregular Hormones
