Stress Hormone.

You had a stressful week at work, the baby is crying and you don’t have enough to pay all the bills. Now, on top of that, you cannot find your car keys. Your lapse in memory may have to do with the incredible stress you are under. The stress hormone cortisol, a chemical released by the human adrenal gland when it is under stress, has now been shown to have a detrimental effect on memory. In addition, this stress hormone may lead to illness and weight gain.

Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis discovered that memory is significantly negatively affected by high levels of the stress hormone cortisol in the blood stream for several days. These levels are the same levels of stress hormone that are released after a person experiences major stress.

In another study, published in the journal of Nature, the stress hormone corticosterone when released into the body by stressful situations, anxiety or injury to the physical body, prevents a person from retrieving information in their memory banks or long term memory.

This “stress hormone” as cortisol is called, because levels of it rise after exposure to a psychological or physical stressor, does not only signify the level of stress a person is experiencing, but it is a necessary hormone in order to sustain life. Nearly every part of the body is affected by the stress hormone cortisol. When there is too much or two little cortisol released by the adrenal gland, certain diseases and symptoms may manifest themselves.

The stress hormone, cortisol, helps the body to regulate the amounts of fats, carbohydrates and proteins in the body as well as help control blood pressure. When the stress hormone is released into the bloodstream, amino acids which act as the building blocks of protein are released as well. When the stress hormone cortisol levels are too high or too low, there may be a disturbance in metabolism which may lead to illness.

The stress hormone, cortisol, has many different functions but the main function is to insure that the body has enough energy to live. This stress hormone stimulates the metabolism of fats and proteins and also stimulates appetite by causing the release of insulin into the blood and maintains blood sugar levels. The end result of high levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, in the body is weight gain or difficulty losing weight.

In addition to causing weight gain, the stress hormone, cortisol, causes weight to be gained around the abdominal region. This weight gain has been shown to be more dangerous than weight that is gained on the hips and thighs because it may lead to heart attacks and strokes. Because of this, the fat gained around the middle is often called “toxic fat”.

The level of the stress hormone, cortisol, in the bloodstream differs with each individual. Some people secrete more stress hormone than others. Some people just react to stress by secreting more cortisol than others. Studies have shown that the people that tended to eat more when under stress were the ones secreting more of the stress hormone, cortisol. Another study showed that those who reported more stress in their lives and had high cortisol levels tended to pack on the pound around the belly while those that reported less stressful lives and had lower stress hormone levels tended to gain weight in the hips. Some groups of people tend to have higher levels of stress hormone than others. For example, pregnant women in the last trimester of pregnancy, athletes, those with depression, anxiety, malnutrition, panic disorder and alcoholics tend to have higher levels of the stress hormone than other groups of people.

Because of the role that stress plays in weight gain and in the difficulty in loosing weight as well as the fact that the stress hormone causes people to gain weight around the middle, people should make stress relief a regular part of their weight loss of weight maintenance routine. One of the best stress relievers and promoters of weight loss, muscle gain and feelings of well being is exercise. If the benefits derived from exercise could be put into a bottle, it would be a best-seller. Exercise makes us feel better because the body releases chemicals called endorphins which not only relieve stress but also cause a reduction in cortisol levels. Yoga is a great form of exercise to relive stress because it both strengthens muscles and helps you concentrate on breathing and relaxation. Simple meditation can also help relive stress. A good time to exercise or practice meditation would be at the time when the stress hormone, levels are the highest. The body tends to secrete the most cortisol between the hours of six and eight a.m. Also, if you are feeling tense and stressed out, instead of reaching for a donut or cookie to make you feel better, try going for a walk or popping in a yoga tape.

Nutritional supplements can also be very beneficial for dealing with stress. We recommend using Extress, a homeopathic and nutrition supplement that is exceptionally effective in aiding the body during periods of stress, tension, anxiety, minor phobic reactions and complaints of generalized patterns of anxious discomfort.
