Our Advanced Adrenal Support is the ultimate Cortisol control natural dietary supplement taken daily to reduce stress and promote relaxation by supporting adrenal function and healthy cortisol levels. Adrenal Fact! Adrenal glands produce hormones that help the body control blood sugar, burn protein and fat, react to stressors like a major illness or injury, and regulate blood pressure. Two of the most important adrenal hormones are cortisol and aldosterone. Constant adrenal stimulation, through excessive stress, poor diet and sleeping habits can lead to a decrease in their function and a pervasive fatigue, permeating all system functions. CORTISOL AND WEIGHT GAIN How is cortisol related to weight gain? If you are under stress for any reason (even excessive exercise is stress), your adrenals will pump out cortisol. The cortisol will convert fat cells to sugar for the blood stream. But then estrogen tells the body to store the sugar that is circulating in the blood stream as fat. It is not good to have too much sugar in the blood stream. It will be converted to fat. If you have adrenal fatigue, it will often affect your other hormones and they will also become unbalanced. That can also cause weight problems. But it is usually best to work on healing the adrenals first, and many times the other hormones will start to recover as well. For this reason it is imperative to have a product that can help regulate these levels to maintain a healthy diet and regulate your metabolism and overall unexplained weight gain.
