The ingredients in Cortisol Manager support healthy cortisol levels.* Cortisol is one of the most important hormones involved in the adaptation process. By supporting balanced cortisol and a healthy stress response, Cortisol Manager also promotes relaxation to support restful sleep.*
THE ROLE OF CORTISOL IN TIMES OF STRESS
Cortisol is a hormone produced in the adrenal cortex that is released during times of stress. Variations in cortisol secretion can indicate how well the body is coping with stress. Cortisol homeostasis is typically characterized by peak secretion during the early morning hours with a gradual decline throughout the day. Because of its central role as a key stress hormone, cortisol is often thought of as a bridge between stress and its health impact.
