I came upon this article touting the multiple valuable benefits of Vitamin C. This article came right on time for me in my life considering I’ve been battling extreme adrenal fatigue.
If you didn’t know, our adrenal glands (which sit on top of our kidneys) are the work-horse of the body in my opinion. These glands produce important steroids (cortisol, glucocorticoids, etc) that affects our blood sugar, circadian rhythm (ability to wake up in the AM/go to sleep at night), how we store fat (too much cortisol increases our ability to store more fat…thus too much stress=> weight gain), affects our energy levels, our sex drive, and many other aspects of our bodies, mind, and emotions.
As you can see, these little glands can pack a whopping punch to our health if we don’t do the things necessary to keep them balance.
Now how does vitamin C enter this picture? Well, adrenal glands and vitamin C are like “peas & carrots” or “Forest Gump & Jennnnayy” 🙂 When our adrenals are overworked and stressed, our vitamin C stores deplete…BIG TIME!
As pointed out in the article, vitamin C isn’t just for immune health! I think it’s a vital part of daily health and well-being. It’s changed my life in more ways than one. It’s helped with my adrenal fatigue, it’s kept me from being hypoglycemic (side effect of adrenal fatiuge), decreases my morning brain fog, regulates my bowel health, and just makes me feel GOOD!
