The adrenal glands play an important role in the entire body. These small layered glands are located on top of the kidney. In fact, they are important for healthy kidney function and hormone production, especially stress hormones and sex hormones (estrogen and testosterone).
The adrenal glands secrete several hormones, including steroids and adrenaline. These hormones improve metabolic rate, strengthen the immune system, and regulate blood pressure. They also help the body cope with stress, so problems with their release can lead to many health problems.

Some of the symptoms of adrenal fatigue include:
Brittle nails and/or dry skin
Chronic physical and mental fatigue
Brain fog and memory loss
Body aches or chronic muscle pain
Anxiety and depression
Low blood pressure
Low sex drive
Unexplained weight loss or gain
