Juices for Weakened Adrenal Glands
Have your physician check your cortisol levels by saliva testing. Low cortisol levels are a sign of adrenal fatigue. Juicing can boost immunity which is depleted when adrenal function is low. It can also provide added nutrients to a diet of irregular, poor and processed foods. Signs of low adrenal glands are fatigue, lack of sleep and a compromised immune system.
Buy only organic and shop at locally owned markets. Do what feels good when you approach juicing as a new routine. Use the kinds of fruits and vegetables that you have to get started juicing.
Wash all your juice ingredients. Make only what you plan to drink immediately. Do not worry about having enough for later. A simple juice that contains phytonutrients and brain protecting-properties is spinach, broccoli, sprouts and apple.
To make stress reduction juice, combine 1/4 head of butter lettuce, a carrot, tomato and celery. Lettuce contains potassium, phosphorus and vitamin A. These have a sedative effect and promote natural endorphins that make you feel good.
Consider what ways you can best adapt juicing to fit your routine. Juicing for low adrenal glands addresses other issues like weight control, hormone balancing, stress reduction and immune support.
