7. Stay Hydrated
The body requires water to function properly, and your adrenal glands are no exception. In fact, not drinking enough water can cause dehydration, which is also a hallmark of adrenal fatigue.
As water makes up 65 to 70 percent of total body weight, when there is less water in the body, it surely affects your energy. Plus, water helps build stamina by fighting muscle fatigue.
- Drink plenty of water at regular intervals throughout the day to ensure your body has the energy to function. You can also drink a lot of healthy homemade fruit or vegetable juices.
- Cut down on alcoholic and caffeinated beverages that can lead to dehydration.
As an adaptogen herb, ashwagandha regulates various systems in your body, including the adrenal glands.
This herb is especially good at helping the adrenal glands adjust to stress. It does so by producing stress hormones when you need them and stops producing them when you don’t.
It also helps reduce anxiety, improve immune function and improve sleep. All these factors are important for adrenal functions. It also functions as an antioxidant.
- The recommended dose of ashwagandha is around 500 mg per day. Consult your doctor before starting any supplement regimen.
