Adrenal & Cortisol Support

What's the non-stress cause of adrenal fatigue?

The adrenals have an outside and inside. The inside is all neurological tissue—this makes neurotransmitters. The outside is all glandular tissue—this makes cortisol and other hormones. The insides of the adrenals are part of the fight or flight response, also known as the sympathetic nervous system. The parasympathetic nervous system counteracts the sympathetic nervous system. If your parasympathetic nervous system isn’t working at 100%, you can develop a sympathetic nervous system dominance, where you feel like you’re stuck in stress even when there are no stressors.

The brain stem is very sensitive to vitamin B1, or thiamine. Low B1 can cause a low ability to adapt to stress.

Feeling dizzy when getting up quickly is a sign of this issue.

Symptoms of adrenal fatigue and a vitamin B1 deficiency include:

• Low ability to adapt to stress

• Anxiety

• Fatigue

The most common causes of a vitamin B1 deficiency include:

• Refined carbs and sugar

• Alcohol

• Coffee

• Tea

• Sulfites

• Antibiotics

• Diuretics
