Question Hi Shelley....

The adrenals do two major functions....
They are in two parts...

They make sympathomimetic amines (adrenaline) for fight & flight

And they make metabolic hormones for inflammation/sugar metabolism/
and water/electrolyte control, and some androgens.

What is it that you wish to improve?

Typically Pregnenolone and DHEA are used. But I would get a blood test first to see if these precursors are low. DHEA can stimulate sex hormone production.

This article is an example of what is out there... But I think it is pretty complex, and not all of the things listed may pertain to you:
