What are Adrenal Glands and What do They do in Your Body? Your adrenal glands are walnut-shaped organs that sit above your kidneys. These “tiny but mighty” glands are essential to life and responsible for secreting a range of critical hormones like adrenaline, epinephrine, cortisol, testosterone, estrogens, DHEA, aldosterone and more. When you’re faced with a great deal of stress, your adrenal glands become overworked, exhausted and dysregulated.
Why is Whole Food Vitamin C Included? Vitamin C is critical for proper adrenal function. Not only is the highest concentration of Vitamin C found in your adrenal glands, but your adrenals depend on Vitamin C for the production of numerous hormones. And, when you do not have sufficient Vitamin C levels, it can cause an excess release of the “stress” hormone, cortisol.
The Whole Food Vitamin C used in the Jigsaw Adrenal Cocktail™ is from Acerola, derived from cherry trees in Brazil.
