What Is Cortisol?
Cortisol is the hormone that your body produces when you experience stress. It regulates your flight-or-fight-or-freeze response, which is extremely helpful when your life is at stake. After all, it helps you make lightning-fast decisions to survive.
But in today’s society, chronic stress and overtraining are elevating cortisol levels over longer periods. This can put many crucial functions on “hold,” such as brain and muscle cell repair, and even your digestion and immune systems. Meanwhile, elevated cortisol keeps releasing energy from sugars and fats, even after the urgent need is gone. This can further damage processes in every single cell of your body.
Chronic stress is a contributing cause to muscle weakness, brain fog, ulcers, weight gain, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, infertility, cancer … the list goes on. It is so urgent, the World Health Organization labeled stress the health epidemic of the 21st century.
