Is Adrenal Fatigue Causing You To Gain Weight, Feel Bloated, & Tired?
If you’ve been feeling tired all the time and burnt out, regardless of how much sleep you get, your adrenals may be to blame!
The biggest mistake I see people make when trying to lose weight is overlooking adrenal health. Our adrenal glands are extremely sensitive to stress and become worn out quickly if they aren’t nourished and protected. When stress is chronic, they require additional nutritional support, in addition to an adrenal-friendly diet and exercise program that specifically addresses adrenal health.
Hormone levels play a large role in our energy levels and mood and are also the reason we crave sugar and carbs that leads to overeating, weight gain, water retention, and bloat. Our adrenal glands are directly related to all of these issues, including the inability to lose weight or burn belly fat.
Excessive body fat that accumulates on and around our stomach and also a puffy, rounder face are indicative of a worn-out adrenal system and adrenal fatigue. Take this quick adrenal health quiz to see if your adrenals have been affected by chronic and/or short-term stress.
Which of these apply to you?
- Weight gain
- Difficulty losing weight/easily gain weight
- Increased fat storage (midsection/belly)
- Elevated/erratic blood sugar Levels (hypo and hyperglycemic )
- Unbalanced hormone levels
- Fatigue/feeling run down and burnt out
- Allergies/food sensitivities (allergies both severe and mild, environmental and food-related)
- Cravings for salty foods, sugar, and carbohydrates
- Hungry most of the time
- Anxiety, depression, moodiness, irritability
- Muscle and/or bone loss
- Inflammation, aches and pains that won't go away
- Eczema, psoriasis, skin irritations
- Headaches, migraines
- High blood pressure
- Low immunity, frequent illness with decreased immune function
- Memory and concentration problems
- Low libido and sex drive
If you suffer from five or more of the above, stress is already depleting your adrenals and affecting your health. If stress has been zapping your energy, making you feel moody and irritable, you feel hungry all the time and have been battling with cravings and stopping you from losing weight; your body is trying to tell you it needs something.
LynFit Nutrition® Thyro-Boost can help kickstart your adrenals and nourish them back to health, so you feel like yourself again.
It's important to address these underlying nutrient issues to prevent your health problems from getting worse. Adrenals can't nourish themselves and will become more and more depleted. That’s where nutritional supplements like Thyro-Boost come in. It's a natural approach to adrenal fatigue and is made up of safe, highly effective adaptogens that protect every aspect of our health.
Adaptogens help our bodies adapt during times of stress, both good stress and bad, long-term chronic stress. Living under stress puts our bodies in ‘fight or flight’ response, which impacts our body's ability to stay healthy and accelerate the aging process.
What is Fight-or-Flight?
If you're living in today's fast-paced, stress-filled world, you're highly aware of the fight-or-flight response, and you're not alone. Fight-or-flight is our bodies physical reaction that occurs during times of stress.
Back in the stone age days, when a caveman was confronted by an animal that wanted to eat him, his adrenal glands activated several systems in his body that prompted him to stay and fight or run away. This physical reaction helped the caveman stay alive and survive.
The difference being that back in those slower, less stressful days is that people’s bodies had more time in between stressful events, allowing the body to recover. Fast forward to life in today's modern world filled with stress, and our bodies are experiencing stress reactions every few minutes, and it’s led to adrenal exhaustion insufficiency.
DID YOU KNOW that stress depletes our body's nutrient stores faster than running a marathon or a very strenuous uphill 8-hour hike?
The problem with everyday stress versus athletic stress is that marathoners and avid exercisers know they need to provide their body with the proper amounts (higher than usual) of nutrients via nutritional supplements. Many people living in day-to-day stress skip this step. Even if you eat perfectly, it's impossible to keep up with the nutrient demand that today's stress inflicts on our bodies, especially when it comes to our adrenal glands.
Why add Thyro-Boost to you daily nutritional supplements?
Thyro-Boost contains 17 adaptogenic nutrients that provide natural sources of the specific nutrients our adrenal glands need, including but not limited to herbs, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids, in the specific amounts needed. They work synergistically together, making them more powerful than taking the nutrients separately. They work faster and more efficiently, helping our body cope with stress and instantly provide the nutrients our adrenals (and thyroids) need to prevent further depletion.
Doesn't my green mix powder or stress gummies do the same?
No! In fact, many deplete nutrients further due to fillers, sugar, and lack of digestibility.
We don't suggest store-bought, sugar-filled gummies or juicing/drinking green powders because they spike blood sugar levels, which depletes already depleted adrenals and thyroid glands, further weakening immunity and causing fatigue. They also lack the specific herbs and nutrients required by our adrenal and thyroid glands to keep them healthy and functioning optimally.
What's worse, they are unsuspecting... we don't think that they can do harm or make a bad situation worse because it comes in a healthy-looking label and is stamped “organic.” If you're drinking pre-made juice or juicing yourself, this is even more true. What makes it even worse is these juices contain more sugar than drinking a Coke!
When our adrenals are worn out, juicing (whether it be pre-made or fresh-squeezed juice) can actually make us feel worse, in addition to blood sugar spikes. The nutrients they contain are derived from ingredients that inhibit thyroid function and deplete nutrients our adrenal glands require more of when we are stressed and run down. Juicing may be the reason your adrenal glands are not being restored, which is also why you're not feeling better, and your body is feeling more worn out and your fatigue is now chronic.
Can I take Thyro-Boost with adrenal/thyroid medication or corticosteroids?
There IS NO PRESCRIPTION PILL, magic potion, or treatment when it comes to improving your adrenal, thyroid, and nervous system. It all starts with proper daily nutrient intake. And, if your adrenals have become so worn out due to aging, stress, or long-term steroid use, your body needs even more nutritional support.
Adaptogenic herbs like the ashwagandha found in Thyro-Boost are safe to take. Just allow a few hours in-between (spacing drugs and supplements is always a better approach, even when safe to take together), so nutrients don’t compete with them (better assimilation).
Every system in our body and minds are connected to each other. If one of these is off, it throws our entire body off and can get worse over time until these underlying nutrient deficiencies are addressed.
Our health care system and many doctors will say that there is no cure for adrenal insufficiency, hypothyroidism, and many of the other health ailments. But, I can personally say that for me and my body, the smart, strategic use of specific nutritional supplements like Thyro-Boost was the game change I needed to jumpstart my weight loss. It created a domino effect of changes, from feeling physically better, more energy, less hunger and fewer cravings, less depressed, and even the odd aches and pains that were unexplained vanished.
Because I felt better and my ability to fall asleep and stay asleep Improved, it was easier for me to stick to a healthier eating plan. I organically wanted to be more active, all of which led to lasting sustainable weight loss. To my doctor's amazement, even my thyroid levels have been rebalanced and restored, so I no longer require Synthroid prescription (as long as I continue taking my Thyro-Boost!).
That’s exactly why I created Thyro-Boost! It works better, faster, is easier, and saves me a lot of time and money looking for answers in the wrong places. No disrespect, but our health care system is severely overburdened and becoming less and less effective every day, despite the astronomical increase in health care and insurance costs, which is exactly why the best prevention is the solution.
