Isocort & Cortisol

Cortisol is a hormone that is produced in the body by the adrenal gland. The adrenal gland is a small gland that sits on top of the kidneys and secretes several hormones to help regulate many processed. Cortisol in particular is a steroid hormone that is released in response to stress. The primary function of this hormone is to increase blood sugar, suppress the immune system, and aid in metabolism. An additional function of this hormone is to promote fetal lung maturation in pregnant women.

Cortisol in Isocort is derived from Mexican wild Yams and is no longer a glandular formula.

Many imbalances in cortisol are stress related. If the body is under constant stress, the levels of cortisol are increased which suppresses the immune system and makes the person at a higher risk of getting sick. Also, in addition to these effects, studies have shown that high cortisol levels can lead to weight gain. This is because with the increased metabolism, your body craves “comfort foods” and appetite is increased. On the opposite side, low cortisol levels decrease metabolism which leads to low blood sugars which causes decreased energy levels.

There are many factors that can increase or decrease cortisol levels for people with imbalances. Ways to reduce cortisol levels include Omega 3 and Omega 6, music therapy, massage therapy, laughing/humor, vitamin C, and black tea. In general, these therapies help to reduce stress levels which lead to lower cortisol levels. Ways to increase cortisol levels include caffeine ingestion, physical exercise, and some oral contraceptives.

Overall, cortisol levels effects your body greatly. One of the best non-medical ways to control cortisol levels is stress management. Stress management techniques include exercise, relaxation time, meditation, music, and much more. However, if you have a problem with cortisol imbalances, you need to consult a doctor to find the treatment that is best for you.
