How to Reduce Cortisol Naturally (Stress Hormone) - A Must Watch Video

Have you seen the self-help books on how to reduce stress? So which one has the real answer? Two reasons that spring to mind as instigators are: finances and romances. But that’s not all; there’s often a kaleidoscope of trouble brewing internally. The hypothalamus located in your brain starts to ring the alarm. Then the adrenal glands rev up production of cortisol – which is known as the stress hormone.

In today’s video we’ll take an in-depth look at this steroid hormone and learn more about its function.

Cortisol’s responsibilities

Helps keep insulin in check
Helps us remain in control as we respond to stress
Helps regulate blood pressure
Aids the immune system’s health
It sounds like a good hormone, but a continuously high level of cortisol can lead to Cushing’s syndrome.

Some of the causes of Cushing’s syndrome

We have enough bad stuff on our plate – and that can get us tangled in knots. Take control and lower your cortisol. You’ll be glad you did.
