Stressed?!!!!Posted in Health, Nutrition, Vitamins
Stress, who doesn’t have it? With the busy and demanding lives we lead it is hard to keep stress at a manageable level. Too much stress can affect us in various ways. Our hormone balance can be disrupted.Hormones are chemical messengers that travel through the blood to affect specific target cells. It affects our mood, our sleep patterns and can keep us in a fatigued state. The adrenal glands produce cortisol (a hormone), one of the main hormones that allows our body to deal with stressful situations without “falling” apart. The more stress we go through the more cortisol gets produced by the adrenals. When this happens, symptoms of fatique, anxiety, weight gain, and general unwellness continue to worsen. You may need extra nutritional support and to try to change some of your lifesyle issues in order to enjoy your life more. See a nutritionist and or your personal trainer for some valuable options.
