When we stress, our body releases a stress hormone called Cortisol. If stress continues for a long period of time, the adrenals (which releases cortisol) will become depleted. This causes more stress and fatigue. Sereni-Tea is a blend of adaptogens (improve adrenal function) to ease the feeling of stress and anxiety while increasing energy and mental clarity.
How do you know if you have Adrenal Fatigue?
There are some symptoms but the best way is to see a Functional Medicine practitioner who can get tests done, identifying the levels of cortisol and DHEA at various times of the day.
In the meantime, here are some symptoms to look out for:
– Craving salt (this indicates your adrenals are trying to rectify the problem. Enjoy as much salt as you like but it can only be Himalayan Pink Salt or Celtic Sea Salt – as these two types of salt contain the minerals your adrenals need to heal)
– Low blood pressure
– Fatigue – generalised and/or muscle fatigue
– Poor appetite
How can this translate onto the skin?
-Increased cortisol will lead to increased testosterone so there would be more acne on the face, neck and back.
– Adrenalin and cortisol are inflammatory chemicals so more inflammation in the skin will lead to skin diseases such as eczema and psoriasis.
– Due to the change in hormones, melasma may present.
– Accelerated ageing process can lead to a dull, lacklustre complexion, deepening of fine lines and wrinkles and increased sagging due to the reduction of qi (energy) in the body.
-Place 1 pyramid tea bag into a teacup and add filtered boiled water.

For Extra Flavour:
Mint – Add in mint into the cup/jug before adding the water and allow to steep with the tea bag(s)
Fresh Fruit – use berries, pineapple, peach, mango or your favourite summer fruits to increase flavour.
Add your chosen fruit before adding the water and allow the flavours of your fruit and Salubre’s herbs to brew into a perfect sup of refreshing summer-time tea.
