July Wellness Tip – Are you tired all the time?
It may be time to tune up your adrenals. Are daily tasks, work demands and family responsibilities taking it’s toll on you?
From time to time all of us need help with energy. One of the best ways to get your health back on track is to nourish your adrenal glands. Adrenal glands release hormones that help you to cope with stressors. Vitamin C is not just for cold and flu. It helps to speed up the production and release of hormones from the adrenal glands. Take 1,000 mg daily as a supplement from a source that does not use corn, as it’s healthier. Vitamin C can also be found in food sources from brightly coloured foods such as broccoli, pineapple, red, yellow and green peppers, kiwi, Brussel’s sprouts, cantaloupe and kale.
Vitamin B5 is used to regulate adrenal function. Take 100-200 mg per day, but take it in a multi-B complex form for maximum efficacy.Best food sources include egg yolks, cashews, avocados, lentils and broccoli.
Co-enzyme Q10 is a great antioxidant that is a cofactor in the body’s cellular energy cycle. It boosts cellular energy by increasing oxygen use in the cells, which allow for modest improvements in your overall energy.
Get started now and you will notice a difference in as little as 2 to 4 weeks.
