What is stress?
Stress can be defined as any type of change that causes physical, emotional or psychological strain. However, not all types of stress are harmful or even negative.

Here are a two varieties of stress that we can commonly encounter:
  1. Acute Stress: Very short-term type of stress that can either be positive or more distressing. This is the stress we most often encounter in day-to-day life (ie: Dealing with road rage)
  2. Chronic Stress: This type of stress is one that that seems never-ending and inescapable, like the stress of a bad marriage or an extremely taxing job (this type of stress can lead to burnout)
What is cortisol?
Cortisol is a hormone produced in the adrenal cortex in response to adrenal cortical stimulating hormone (ACTH) produced in the pituitary gland. Cortisol plays an important role in regulating blood sugar, energy production, inflammation, the immune system and healing.

How does cortisol function in a healthy way?
In the "Fight or Flight" response, the adrenal glands enlarge and secrete large quantities of adrenal cortical hormones. These hormones suppress inflammatory responses and mobilize the body's energy reserves. This puts the body on RED ALERT. This is very important for your body to attend to needs at hand—but NOT on a daily basis.

How does cortisol function when it is out of balance?
As the body responds to this cumulative stress, cortisol’s effects can by physically detrimental. Excessive high levels of cortisol cause depletion of precious nutrients required for daily body functions. Increased levels of cortisol are caused by stress, environmental pollutants, and lifestyle.

Natural Hormone Balancing Supplement for Women
Cortistop contains prenenolone, black cohosh and DHEA. Prenenolone benefits include balancing glandulars, improving energy and reducing stress. Black Cohosh benefits include decreasing cortisol levels, boosting natural estrogen levels and reducing hot flashes. DHEA, derived from wild yam is an important hormone precursor for progesterone; and enhances memory and lean body mass. Cortistop helps regulate and balance all the hormones in the reproductive system naturally.

Factors that increase cortisol in the body are:
COFFEE, SUGAR and CHOCOLATE, STRESS and many pharmaceuticals including PROZAC, or ANTI-DEPRESSANTS.

Increased appetite Can lead to Obesity
Elevated Cholesterol, Blood Pressure Can lead to Heart Disease
Alters Brain Chemistry Can lead to Anxiety or Depression
Shrinks Brain Cells Can lead Alzheimer’s Disease
