The body's natural stress-fighting and anti-inflammatory hormone.

Cortisol is an important hormone in the body, secreted by the adrenal glands and involved in the following functions and more:

Proper glucose metabolism
Regulation of blood pressure
Insulin release for blood sugar maintanence
Immune function
Inflammatory response
Normally, it?s present in the body at higher levels in the morning, and at its lowest at night. Although stress isn?t the only reason that cortisol is secreted into the bloodstream, it has been termed ?the stress hormone? because it?s also secreted in higher levels during the body?s ?fight or flight? response to stress, and is responsible for several stress-related changes in the body. Small increases of cortisol have some positive effects:


A quick burst of energy for survival reasons
Heightened memory functions
A burst of increased immunity
Lower sensitivity to pain
Helps maintain homeostasis in the body
While cortisol is an important and helpful part of the body?s response to stress, it?s important that the body?s relaxation response to be activated so the body?s functions can return to normal. Unfortunately, in our current high-stress culture, the body?s stress response is activated so often that functioning often doesn?t have a chance to return to normal, producing chronic stress.

Higher and more prolonged levels of cortisol in the bloodstream (like those associated with chronic stress) have been shown to have negative effects, such as:


Impaired cognitive performance
Suppressed thyroid function
Blood sugar imbalances such as hyperglycemia
Decreased bone density
Decrease in muscle tissue
Higher blood pressure
Lowered immunity and inflammatory responses in the body, as well as other health consequences
Increased abdominal fat, which is associated with a greater amount of health problems than fat deposited in other areas of the body. Some of the health problems associated with increased stomach fat are heart attacks, strokes, the development of , higher levels of ?bad? cholesterol (LDL) and lower levels of ?good? cholesterol (HDL), which can lead to other health problems!
To keep cortisol levels healthy and under control, the body?s relaxation response should be activated after the fight or flight response occurs. You can learn to relax your body with various stress management techniques, and you can make lifestyle changes in order to keep your body from reacting to stress in the first place. The following have been found by many to be very helpful in relaxing the body and mind, aiding the body in maintaining healthy cortisol levels:

Let me start by saying these were the very first in ear monster beats dre I've ever had. I've never really had the kind of money for great monster tour headphones, but if I was ever gonna get anything, it was going to be monster. These headphones first got my attention because they were waterproof, and even machine washable! Which comes in handy when you stuff them in your pocket after a workout and forget about them until you realize they are in the machine soaking at which point with regular monster turbine pro copper its already too late.

Sound quality is downright crisp and deep, I can listen to every little aspect of my music instead of it all melting into each other. Truly amazing, satisfied every expectation and surpassed most of monster lady gaga video. Definately happy I went with monster beats by dre pro, and now I'm a customer for life.
