Avocados Improve Adrenal Function

Dr. Susan Blum explained to Dr. Oz and the audience that adrenal glands play a crucial role in helping to keep your immune system strong.  Adrenal glands produce the “stress hormone” cortisol.  When your adrenal glands are stressed they produce too much cortisol.  This can cause adrenal fatigue and too much cortisol in your body is bad for  your immune system.  Fortunately there are foods that you can eat to support the health of your adrenal glands.  Dr. Blum suggested :

    Eat Avocados –  Delicious and nutritious avocados are high in healthy fats and protein.   Avocados are an excellent food that will support your adrenal glands.  Dr. Blum recommended adding a 1/4 to 1/2 of an avocado to your diet every day.  This will help to improve the health of your adrenal glands which will help to strengthen your immune system.
