Your Adrenal Health Impacts Blood Sugar and Metabolism
Your adrenal glands are tiny, walnut-sized glands that sit above your kidneys. And, they release critical hormones into your bloodstream impacting multiple bodily functions, including regulating blood sugar levels and metabolism.*
One of the most important hormones your adrenals produce is cortisol. Cortisol is mainly known for its vital role in helping your body respond to stress, but there's a lot more going on behind the scenes...
You see, when your body's under stress, your adrenal glands secrete cortisol to stimulate several processes in the body that regulate blood sugar levels to compensate the demand for energy under these stressful conditions.*
But, prolonged stress results in overworked adrenal glands and constant elevated cortisol levels in the body which can suppress digestive functions and affect metabolism (1).*
In fact, not only is the highest concentration of vitamin C found in your adrenal glands, but when you do not have sufficient vitamin C levels, it can cause an excess release of cortisol.*
That's why we carefully and thoughtfully formulated the Jigsaw Adrenal Cocktail™ to combine Wholefood Vitamin C, Potassium Bicarbonate, and Redmond’s Real Salt® to easily and conveniently replenish your adrenal glands.
