The adrenal glands produce hormones that underlie the body's mechanisms for coping with physical and mental stress. Overtraining in athletics; chronic anxiety; worry; nervous tension and other factors associated with excessive cortisol release are linked to adrenal exhaustion and fatigue. Over-reliance on caffeine and other stimulants also taxes the adrenals.
