Every day I work with individuals who complain of a healthy diet, good exercise routines and yet they still have a fat layer around their belly and hips. Generally, I ask about sleep patterns, energy levels and daily stress ratings.  Most are having troubles sleeping, having sugar cravings, waking up all hours of the night and stress is 7+. 

I usually recommend a stress lowering program and menu plan that includes an adrenal support and cortisol balancing supplement:  Pro Cortisol Balance.  This great chewable supplement is formulated to lower cortisol (stress hormone) levels in the body.  It is one of the best products that I use in my office.  So many individuals come to me and tell me how much better they are sleeping and how much better they feel after taking Pro-Cortisol Balance.  I have to keep an excess on the shelf because it can all be sold in just a few hours!  To understand its popularity, let me describe the mechanism of cortisol…

Cortisol is a hormone released from the cortex of the adrenal glands in response to stress.  Under any kind of stress, the body needs quick energy.  When cortisol is released, it breaks down anything in its pathway and converts it to usable sugars.  The body will willingly sacrifice itself for survival.  If stress continues long-term, the body recognizes that it cannot sacrifice itself any longer, so the body will place a layer of belly fat on the hips (spare tire).  Thus, the cortisol can now breakdown the fat in the mid-section instead of sacrificing the other important tissues in the nearby area.  Cortisol is also a sleep-cycle regulator.  It spikes in the morning to wake you up and should gradually decrease during the day.  If cortisol fails to spike, the individual is groggy.  If it does not decrease in the evening, the individual will have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep.

Indicators of high cortisol levels:

  • Difficulty falling asleep
  • Difficulty staying asleep
  • Difficulty waking up
  • Never feel well rested
  • Ligament laxity (loose joints)
  • Difficulty losing weight
  • Fatigue / Tired
  • Sugar cravings
  • Tenderness on web of finger between 4th and 5th digit
