Symptoms, conditions and causes

How does coffee affect the adrenals?

Too much of it will stimulate cortisol. And cortisol will then keep you from sleeping. So you're going to be tired the next day. Like if you drink a lot of it. And of course, I stick with one small little cup. Too much coffee contributes to burnt out adrenals because of the constant stimulation. It's interesting because people drink coffee to stay awake. But it ends up making them asleep during the day. Because then all of a sudden you need more and more to create the same effect to the point where you're always kind of you're tired and you just don't have the energy and you're not sleeping. So it really has a rebound effect.
