Adrenal Fatigue Overview

Adrenal Fatigue is common and growing by leaps & bounds.
80% of Americans have some form of Adrenal Fatigue.

If you are overworked, overstressed, or simply feel perpetually frazzled, listen up: Constant stress could end up seriously compromizing your body's natural ability to reenergize. Known as adrenal fatigue, this big-time energy crash seems to be saddling more and more Americans with health troubles that range from irregular menstrual cycles to low blood sugar.
