How are neurotransmitters involved with adrenal health?

Serotonin is a key component for hypothalamic stimulus of ACTH, which in turn, is necessary for the release of cortisol and DHEA. Insufficient supply of serotonin will lead to an insufficient release of cortisol.

Cortisol, epinephrine, and norepinephrine work together to engage system-wide defense mechanisms, fostering mobilization through processes such as secretion and distribution of glucose and stored energy. As adrenal dysfunction develops, the catecholamines will elevate as a compensatory action to manage fatigue and stress.

Addressing neurotransmitter imbalances is an essential component of the successful treatment of adrenal dysfunction.
