The adrenal glands are walnut-sized organs located atop each kidney. They are crucial control centers for many of the body’s hormones, including cortisol, DHEA, estrogen, testosterone, and adrenaline. When you are under stress, the adrenal glands produce hormones that trigger the body’s natural “fight or flight” response, which takes priority over all other metabolic functions. For example, the hormone cortisol helps convert fats, proteins, and carbohydrates into sudden energy, suppresses immune and inflammation responses, and enhances short-term memory at the expense of learning ability. However, this powerful adrenal response is not designed to last very long.
Modern life is full of stresses that were not present, or at least not common, in earlier times. Today, most Americans are overworked, undernourished, sleep deprived, and both physically and emotionally stressed. These physical and emotional stresses may include schedules and deadlines, finances, relationships, health concerns, traffic, noise, work and home pressures, environmental toxins, prescription medicines, stimulants like carbohydrates and caffeine-- the list is virtually endless. Constant stress leaves the body in a perpetual “fight or flight” state that can lead to many chronic and acute health problems, including weight gain, mood swings, poor immune response, anxiety, depression, exhaustion, insomnia, and a shorter life expectancy.
Stress-free living requires careful planning, good decisions, living within your means and abilities, and knowing when to “just say no”. Of course, the occasional unplanned crisis will still happen—but as long as it is only once in a while, healthy adrenals can help you deal with the sudden crisis at work, or avoid the car that just turned in front of you. If you are in an unavoidable long-term stress situation, nutritional supplements specifically designed for adrenal health may help restore your usual energy levels.

GABA (gamma amino butyric acid) is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that plays an essential role in increasing alpha waves and decreasing beta waves by controlling dopamine and serotonin levels. Research shows that GABA not only induces relaxation but also reduces anxiety.
