Adrenal exhaustion is a common problem in our society which occurs when the adrenal glands responsible for dealing with stress become overworked. This problem can become particularly acute during menopause, a time which exerts its own extra stress on the adrenal glands, which can become overwhelming if your life was already stressful. That's where ADRENAsmart may be able to help, through a variety of adaptogenic and other herbs.
Withania somnifera is a high quality form of ashwagandha that is taken for weight management as well as for mental, cardiovascular, and blood health; Schisandra berry helps promote liver health, and can fight stress and fatigue; Suma is a general health tonic considered good for all kinds of maladies, including sexual dysfunction; and Rhodiola is a particularly excellent adaptogen for those experiencing menopause, as it (unlike most other adaptogens) has a cooling rather than warming effect.
Early symptoms of adrenal stress include: fatigue, depression, cold hands or feet, dizziness, low back pain, asthma, allergies, sweet cravings, hormonal imbalances, irritability, headaches, colitis and other gastrointestinal problems, skin problems, arthritis and other inflammatory conditions. Research has shown that cortisol imbalances can also lead to blood sugar problems, weight gain, compromised immune function, infertility, chronic fatigue, bone loss, high triglyceride levels and heart disease.
Hi, I'm Lorna Vanderhaeghe, women's natural health expert and author of "A Smart Woman's Guide to Hormones."
This is the first time in history that we have more women over the age of 50 than under, and these women are highly educated, have more disposable income, and they want to look better and feel fabulous, and they don't have time for menopause symptoms. Menopause means one year with no menstrual periods, and the average age of menopause is 52 years. At menopause, the ovaries take a much needed rest and no longer secrete eggs.
I'm often asked what makes the difference between the woman who has no symptoms at menopause and the woman who suffers with endless hot flashes, night sweats, angry outbursts, insomnia, and brain fog. The answer is those that sail through menopause have great functioning adrenal glands. When the ovaries take a much needed rest the adrenal glands are supposed to kick in and make DHEA, testosterone, estrogen, and other hormones.
If you've been under chronic stress, your adrenals may be too tired to take on this transitional role. Symptoms of exhausted adrenals include insomnia where you fall asleep fine and wake up several hours later but can't get back to sleep, salt and stimulant cravings, and difficulty handling stress.
Treating menopause symptoms involves a two-pronged approach. One, we support the adrenal glands to help us deal with stress and enhance hormone function using ADRENAsmart, a formula to support healthy adrenal function.
