[05:36] Adrenal Fatigue Triggers and Recovery with Steph Prangley

The podcast is sponsored by BLUblox. I have become so passionate about light optimization recently, and filtering out computer light and blue light entirely after the sun sets. I wasn’t doing anything about this until about a year ago, and I was experiencing eye strain, migraines, and an unexplained wired and tired feeling, especially at night. Now I wear BLUblox computer filter glasses anytime I’m looking at screens, and BLUblox sleep lenses at night, and I haven’t experienced symptoms since.
BLUblox was created because they saw the need for a product that was exactly in line with the peer reviewed academic literature. There are a lot of cheaply made lenses out there that don’t actually block all the blue and green light. Don’t waste your time on that, go to blublox.com/wellfed, and use the code WELLFED for 15% off.
This podcast is Supported by LMNT, I have been looking for a company for years like LMNT, that makes clean and easy electrolyte supplementation, for both myself, my husband, and my kids, and I have repeatedly come up short—until now.
Most of you know we talk a lot about hydration, and specifically how electrolytes are an important aspect of hydration that so many people overlook. Electrolytes are crucial minerals that conduct electrical charges in your body. The primary ones are sodium, chloride, potassium, magnesium, and calcium. These minerals can mean the difference between feeling like a champ and feeling like garbage. Especially during exercise.
Every message sent through your nervous system (including your brain) involves electrical transmissions—or nerve impulses. You need electrolytes in order for nerve impulses to fire. The problem is, you lose electrolytes through sweat, urine, and feces—and they have to be replaced through diet and supplementation. And that need increases significantly if you’re exercising regularly and sweating, or if you’re following a whole foods diet.
When training, especially fasted, electrolytes are critical for performance. Many athletes feel dehydrated and drink more water – however this can dilute blood sodium levels even further. This shows up as muscle cramps, headaches, fatigue, and sleep disturbances. And Electrolytes play a key roll in hormone regulation, too. Low sodium levels actually spike adrenal hormones like cortisol. And get this, if you’re following a lower carb or whole foods diet, added salt is needed because you’re not getting it though processed foods. And if you’re regularly training and sweating, this need really increases.
LMNT makes grab and go electrolyte replacement supplementation. You just take an LMNT recharge packet, mix it up with water, and sip! There’s absolutely no sugar, gluten, fillers, artificial ingredients, and it’s paleo friendly.
