Pizza Peppers an Adrenal Recipe

Category: Blog, Recipes • Feb 21 2017

Pizza Peppers are great for adrenal nourishment, supplying many of the key nutrients to help the adrenal glands function.

The peppers are chock full of vitamin C needed by the adrenal cortex to make cortisol.  The olives and olive oil contain monounsaturated fats, which are the building blocks needed to make their hormones.  Lastly, the garlic, thyme, rosemary and oregano help to reduce inflammation in the body, which helps to relieve nasty inflammation.  Furthermore, this dynamic combo significantly relieves the adrenals from overload!

Amazingly hearty, this recipe is so good for your adrenals, I should have just called them Adrenal Peppers…….LOL  😀
