What hormones and chemicals are
produced by the Adrenals?

The adrenal glands are responsible for the production of many hormones,
neurotransmitters and other biochemicals that your body uses to control its basic

Here is a fairly complete list of chemicals produced in the adrenal glands along with a
brief description of each chemicals basic functions:

The outer layer of the adrenal gland is called the cortex. It is responsible for the
production of the following substances.
  • Cortisol- hormone that prepares the body for stress by effecting sugar
    release, blood pressure, cholesterol production and thyroid activation. Cortisol
    also has anti-inflammatory properties in the body.
  • DHEA- testosterone, estrogen, androstenedione, DHT and other sex hormones
    are all made from DHEA. It is produced in the cortex of the adrenals along with
  • Androstenedione- much like DHEA, androstenedione is used to make
    testosterone and different forms of estrogens.
  • Testosterone- increases energy, muscle mass and sex drive. The adrenal
    production is secondary in males.
  • Estrogen- female sex hormone with regulation over many important tissues in
    both males and females. Adrenal estrogen, estrone,  is secondary to ovarian
    estrogen in young females.
  • Aldosterone- regulates water retention by controlling the sodium and
    potassium levels in the body

The middle portion of the adrenal gland is known as the adrenal medulla. It is
responsible for the production of catecholamines:
  • Adrenaline (epinephrine)- works together with cortisol during the stress
    response to increases heart rate and blood pressure, constrict blood vessels
    and increase air flow in the lungs, all things that will help you to run or fight for
    your life.
  • Noradrenaline (norepinephrine)- very similar in structure and function to its
    brother chemical, adrenaline. Both give you the extra boost of energy when
    your body thinks it needs it most.

Dysfunction of the adrenal gland, known as
adrenal fatigue, can have severe
consequences on your health including extreme difficulty in losing weight.  

The two best products I have found for rejuvenating the adrenal glands are
Complex and Adrenotone. They work well individually and can work very well
together for those who need extra adrenal support.
