Feeling stressed, tired, worn down, all of the above? Your Cortisol levels may be to blame.
Cortisol is known as the stress hormone, which is part of the body's natural "fight or flight" reaction. The adrenal glands, located at the top of your kidneys, release Cortisol under pressure which leads to accelerated heart rate and energy - which is natural - but when the stressful situation subsides, so should this reaction. Unlike our predecessors, who might have had to fight a wild animal and then be on their way - from the moment we are born, life is a competition. We are expected to perform at 200%, 100% of the time. Modern day stresses seem to be constant.
Due to modern day on-going stress rates, quite often Cortisol levels (and heart rate levels) don't go down. This can lead to many issues, including heart disease, anxiety, depression, weight gain (hello spare tire), and more.
Adrenal support is vital to keeping yourself healthy, vital, and vibrant. Without assistance, your body may stay in a constant state of stress. (No one wants that.)
Here's the breakdown of how it works:
The adrenal glands produce Cortisol and other Adrenal Hormones that are critical for life. These hormones play a key role in helping the body respond to physical and emotional stress. Prolonged mental, physical or emotional stress can contribute to adrenal fatigue or insufficiency, a condition that appears as lack of energy, mild depression, impaired memory and decreased focus, diminished libido and general lethargy.
If your Cortisol levels are unbalanced, appropriate treatment can improve the cortisone response in women and men alike. Balancing Cortisol levels is vital in regaining and maintaining good health.
