About a quarter of Canadians and a third of Americans report that they experience some level of stress daily. While acute stress is vital for the body’s defense against immediate danger, mismanaged chronic stress, which is typical among adults, can take a toll on the body, leaving it prone to illness.
Chronic stress can disrupt the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, resulting in cortisol imbalances, the body’s chief stress hormone produced by the adrenal glands.
Specially formulated nutraceuticals from the Happy Hormone Cottage can help individuals overcome nutrient deficiencies, guard against chronic sickness, and unlock numerous other health benefits.
Schedule an appointment with the team if you want to win the battle against adrenal fatigue and take a step closer to living a healthier, more balanced life. By assessing your needs, we’ll be able to advise which nutraceutical products, like Adrenal Calm, can help rid you of that “tired and wired” feeling.
The HPA Axis & The Role It Plays in Adrenal Fatigue
Your hypothalamus is the part of your brain that detects stress. Your hypothalamus signals your pituitary gland, instructing your adrenals to create and release stress hormones. This is the essence of the Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA axis).
While this has enabled us to effectively respond to stress throughout human history by engaging the ‘fight or flight’ response, today’s high-stress modern environment, full of traffic, work, financial stress, and even stress from chronic health issues, keeps the HPA axis constantly engaged in a considerable percentage of our population.
HPA Axis Dysfunction Gives Rise to Adrenal Fatigue
Adrenal exhaustion and adrenal burnout are caused by stress-induced HPA Axis dysfunction. When your brain constantly stimulates your adrenal glands to produce stress hormones, it is incredibly unhealthy for your whole body.
Not only is your mood, sleep, libido, immune system, blood sugar, appetite, and thyroid affected, but it is also extremely taxing on your adrenal glands and micronutrient reserves. Your adrenal glands must work very hard to keep up with the ongoing need for engagement, which may exhaust them and lead to adrenal dysfunction and burnout.
It is also harmful to micronutrient reserves since Vitamin C, trace minerals, magnesium, B vitamins, antioxidants, and other nutrients all contribute to the production of stress hormones. To make things worse, many adults already don’t have enough of these micronutrients needed to produce stress hormones.
Is Cortisol, the Stress Hormone, a Friend or Foe?
Cortisol is one of the primary hormones released by the adrenal glands in response to chronic stress. Although cortisol’s function is to keep us alive in dangerous situations, cortisol dysregulation in reaction to sustained stress may physically damage your health.
Chronically elevated cortisol levels can trigger immune suppression, weight gain and fat storage, blood sugar imbalance, muscle atrophy, sex hormone dysregulation, and various other symptoms.
How Adrenal Support Can Help You
Happy Hormone Cottage’s Adrenal Support treatment comprises patented formulations promoting a healthy cortisol curve—the greatest energy levels upon waking and the lowest at sleep.
Recommended for anxiety, insomnia, and fuzzy thinking, Adrenal Calm works best when combined with Adrenal Support 2, which can help with fatigue, energy, and libido. These two products are intended to be used together to simulate a healthy cortisol curve. These supplements are created exclusively for our customers and cannot be obtained elsewhere.

Adrenal Calm is an excellent option for anybody who:
- Has a high-stress job or works long hours
- Sleeps less than eight hours each night
- Frequently consumes coffee, black tea, or other caffeine-containing beverages
