Cortisol Overview

Cortisol Overview

This neurotransmitter is affected by Calm PRT and AdreCor

Cortisol is popularly known as the “stress hormone” as it helps the body deal with stressful situations. In a stressful state, this hormone increases that convert proteins and sugar levels that become the source of the body’s energy. This process help the body cope and deal with stress.

Stress is a demand on physical and mental energy as you adjust to your environment and face different challenges.  A little stress is good as this enables you to cope and accomplish with what is at hand.

Cortisol is secreted by the adrenal glands that help in many bodily functions. It is one of the three adrenocortical hormones that helps the body in proper glucose metabolism, regulates blood pressure, releases insulin for blood sugar maintenance, boosts the immune system, prevents inflammation, heightens memory function, lowers sensitivity to pain and helps maintain homeostasis in the body. Homeostasis is the ability of the body to adjust to any situation or stimulus that tends to disturb its normal condition internally and externally.

Too much stress, that is, the body cannot cope with the demands of everyday activities like work, could lead to consistent increase. This would lead to adverse effects on the body. A person with increased level of cortisol could have the following health problems like increased belly fat that could lead to more health problems, suppressed thyroid function, blood sugar imbalance like hyperglycemia, high blood pressure, high level of cholesterol, lower immune system, decreased bone density and decreased muscle tissue.

The key to maintaining its right level is to relax and stay happy with whatever stress you are facing. Stress is a daily part of life. This is the force that helps you to accomplish things, that is why, it is generally higher in the morning when you have to get things done and lower in the evening as you relax after an exhausting day. Getting eight hours of sleep would considerably decrease its level. Other things like regular exercise, listening to your favorite music, meditation, getting a therapeutic massage, and others, can lower your cortisol level.
