†The adrenal glands control and regulate the body’s self- defense mechanism against stress, a reaction to any stimulus which upsets normal functioning and disturbs mental or physical health. The adrenal glands generate the energy needed to perform strenuous tasks, deal with emotional crises, and fight infection. The proper functioning of the adrenal glands is crucial to a number of physiological functions including blood sugar regulation, stress adaptation, energy generation, stamina, and the normal functioning of the body’s natural defense system.
