What is Cortisol? Cortisol in small amounts is needed by the body to control carbohydrate metabolism, cardiovascular function and inflammation. Too much cortisol is not good for our body, and in fact is known to promote weight gain, cause persistent fatigue, raise blood sugar levels and more. It is therefore, important that we take the necessary steps to control our cortisol levels so that we can lead healthier lives.
What Is The Cortisol Hormone? Cortisol is a hormone released by your adrenal glands in response to either physical or emotional stress and thus, is referred to as the "stress" hormone. Whether it's a lot of missed nights of sleep, an extremely low calorie diet or getting caught in a traffic jam, your body responds in much the same way. It secretes cortisol into your bloodstream, which then can cause even more problems.
This hormone is part of the "fight-or-flight" response that we have as human beings. Faced with stressful situations and danger, we are left to either run or fight. Your body secretes this hormone as a way of fighting off the stress and danger. One of its main functions is to increase the flow of glucose, protein and fat out of your tissues and into your circulation system. It is actually designed to immediately increase your energy levels in response to a physical threat. Wow!
It is important to note that there really isn't wrong with a short-term rise in your cortisol levels so long as it returns to normal within a short amount of time. Unfortunately, many of us suffer from steady levels of stress within our lives. (Death, illnesses, losing a job, financial difficulties, etc.) All of which, contribute to a constant high level of cortisol. The dangers of having high levels of the hormone have been associated with storage of abdominal fat, diabetes, heart disease, weakened immune system, and chronic depression.
