Stress is an inevitable part of life.

However,  you may feel as if the anxiety and depressive thoughts are too much to handle, and you may struggle with physical fatigue and emotional exhaustion.  

If you have recently gone through a major event in your life, your adrenal glands may be severely fatigued. 

While this is not a new condition, the onset of adrenal fatigue often occurs because of major stressors such as financial pressures, emotional stress, smoking, drugs, poor eating habits, high intake of sugar and white flour products, and infections. 

What happens to us when we are under excessive stress?

When we experience excessive stress—whether from internal worry or external circumstance—a bodily reaction is triggered, called the "fight or flight" response.

With one-third of the United States' adult population considered obese, it's no wonder the US weight loss market is a $60 billion industry.

Fad diets, "miracle" pills and the ultimate workout routine headline everything from our daily news programs to late-night infomercials. But what if part of the solution we're searching for is as simple as a well-known, though often insufficient, fat-soluble vitamin we're all quite familiar with? Research suggests it may be.
