We love us a good cup of coffee: the piping hot brew, the rich aroma, the way it picks us up when we’re feeling the midday slump, even the simple ritual of our daily coffee run brings us joy. Yet, sometimes, we can go a little overboard. Some Monday mornings we find ourselves four cups deep, jittery and wondering why we’re feeling so mysteriously wired. A few too many cups of coffee coupled with the stressors of everyday life and you’ve got a recipe for adrenal fatigue.
Here’s the deal: your adrenal glands control your hormones, and when your hormones are out of balance, so is everything else: your mood, weight, emotional state, energy levels and everything else that determines if you’re feeling high on life or down in the dumps (read more about adrenal fatigue here!).
As much as we hate to admit it, guzzling down multiple cups of caffeine can exacerbate any adrenal issues. To help get our buzzing bods back into balance, we enlisted holistic health guru Ashley Neese to create this adrenal tonic with Sun Potion’s Tocos, one of our favorite adrenal-saving superfoods ever. Grab your blender and slowly back away from the espresso machine…
