Cortisol Manager helps to keep the stress hormone cortisol in check.
When we become stressed, the adrenal glands produce more cortisol in order to help the body cope with stressors, whether they’re mental or physical in nature. In times of stress, our bodies must adapt and cortisol helps in this process. In fact, most of our cortisol is made in the early morning hours to get our physiology moving and to prepare us for the day.
However, when stress exceeds our capacity to handle it, cortisol is secreted in larger amounts. Measuring cortisol levels can be an indicator of how well a person is coping with stress.
When stress overloads us, production of cortisol goes into overdrive and can then lead to other health issues.
In the short term, excess cortisol levels can lead to intensified feelings of anxiety and insomnia. Over time, too much cortisol in our system tells the body to store fat - accumulating adipose (fat tissue) around the midsection is a sure sign of excess cortisol.
Too much cortisol in the system can also interfere with other hormones, especially progesterone levels in women. Many low progesterone symptoms (hair loss, anxiety, irregular/heavy periods) result from cortisol’s effect on progesterone balance.
Of course, the best way to lower excess cortisol is by managing stress, cutting back on excess exercise, getting good sleep and generally taking good care of oneself. However, this can be tough when stress and cortisol levels are high. This is where Cortisol Manager comes to mind!
