Stress is an unavoidable natural physical and mental reaction to life experiences to which an individual is constantly exposed in both short-term bursts and over extended periods of time. The body’s ability to withstand the damaging effects of stress is mediated primarily by the adrenal (aka suprarenal) glands: small, triangular glands located on top of the kidneys that secrete hormones involved in stress response (epinephrine, norepinephrine, and cortisol), blood-pressure regulation (aldosterone) and reproduction (estrogen and testosterone) controlling many body processes including digestion, the immune system, mood balance, and energy.
Excessive and prolonged mental and physical stress can lead to adrenal insufficiency and associated symptomatic manifestations including fatigue, immunosuppression, and impaired blood-sugar and blood-pressure control.
