Cortisol is considered to be the stress hormone as the body synthesizes it in situations of emergency to help us deal with stress and problems. Under normal circumstances, our cells us 90% of energy in metabolic activities such as repair, renewal and the formation of new tissues. But when we are in a situation of alarm and stress our brain sends a message to the adrenal glands for them to release cortisol, this hormone causes the body to release glucose into the blood to send massive amounts of energy to the muscles.
By so doing, the anabolic functions of recovery, renewal and tissue creation slow down and the body changes to catabolic metabolism in order to deal with the alarming situation. When this situation of stress takes place occasionally, once the emergency has been overcome, the hormonal levels and physiological processes return to normal, but when stress is maintained over time, as often happens nowadays with our stressful lives, levels of cortisol rocket and can result in weight gain and difficulty in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels.
There may also be changes in behaviour such as lack of sense of humour, constant irritability, feelings of anger, etc. Super Cortisol Support by Now Foods, is a food supplement based on herbs and nutrients to support suprarenal function and maintain healthy cortisol levels, already within normal range. Super Cortisol Support combines adaptogenic minerals and herbs such as Chromium, Corosolic Acid and Relora® to help the body control the negative effects of stress, such as excessive accumulation of abdominal fat, over-eating and low energy levels.
