Support Your Adrenal Health

The adrenal glands are little heard of, and yet extremely important. They sit on top of your kidneys and produce the x-factor hormone, cortisol.

When your stress increases, your cortisol increases. And when your stress stays high, your cortisol either stays high, or runs out. To read more about cortisol, click here.

Best is to have an optimal cortisol level throughout the day and night. To do that, your body needs opportunities to de-stress.

This exciting research about how something as simple as spending time outdoors and enjoying nature can bring cortisol levels back to optimal and solve major health issues.

Spending time in nature can reduce pain, improve attention, lessen stress, modulate agitation, and lower the need for medications.
