Vitamin C is an Important Part of a Healthy Immune System
Did you know?
Vitamin C is an important part of a healthy immune system, but it is also critical for adrenal function? The highest concentration of vitamin C in the body is stored in the adrenal glands. Vitamin C is utilized by the adrenal glands in the production of all of the adrenal hormones, and especially cortisol. When you are faced with a stressful situation, your vitamin C is rapidly used up in the production of cortisol and related stress-response hormones.
In adrenal fatigue, your adrenal glands “panic” when they don’t have enough vitamin C in the production of cortisol and stress hormones-and oddly enough, more cortisol is released. Which then increases anxiety. If this high state of cortisol is prolonged, it wreaks havoc on your blood sugar, blood pressure, and contributes to accumulated belly fat. It really is critical to supplement with vitamin C, especially if you live a stressful life, and have prolonged stress causing adrenal fatigue. In someone with adrenal fatigue, the adrenal glands need all the support they can get. Vitamin C will allow you to respond properly to life`s stressors and recover more quickly from them.
