Maintain cortisol levels with Nature’s Cortisol Formula
You know that being in a constant state of stress is bad for you—your overall mood, your focus, and even your health can suffer. But did you know that stress may also affect weight gain? Researchers have begun to notice a connection between cortisol, a stress hormone, and weight-management indicators, such as calorie consumption and weight gain.
What is cortisol?
Cortisol is a hormone produced in the adrenal glands in response to stress. It promotes the formation of glucose, which is used as fuel during stressful situations. However, excess glucose can be stored by the body as fat.
The research into the link between weight gain and cortisol is ongoing, but it’s always a good idea to try to reduce stress in your life. Fortunately, fighting stress can start with such simple changes as getting enough sleep, eating a balanced diet and regular exercise. A deep breath during a stressful situation never hurts, either!
Cortisol supplements for stress management
You can also help manage cortisol levels with a supplement, such as
Nature’s Sunshine Nature’s Cortisol Formula. This formula contains Relora®
to help the body manage stress and maintain cortisol levels already within
the normal range. Other key ingredients include:
- Banaba, holy basil, chromium and vanadium to help maintain blood glucose levels already within the normal range.
- DHEA, a hormone precursor that interacts with the adrenal glands, which may subsequently affect cortisol production.
- Decaffeinated green tea extract (60% EGCG).
- L-theanine (Suntheanine®, which supports the body during times of stress).
However you choose to manage stress, you’ll benefit both mentally and physically—and you may even see a positive change in your weight, as well.
