What is Cortisol?

Cortisol is your body’s alarm system, the main stress hormone that controls your moods and motivations. Our adrenal glands are responsible for the production of cortisol, which helps the body do several things, including:

  • How the body uses carbs, fats, and proteins
  • Manage inflammation
  • Regulate blood pressure
  • Overall energy

The most important things cortisol does for the body is regulate stress — they don’t call it the “stress hormone” for nothing! — and control our sleep and wake cycles. From acute stress to chronic stress and even PTSD, cortisol is behind it all. Here’s a more scientific break-down of how cortisol levels control the body:

“Your hypothalamus, a small area of your brain involved in hormonal regulation, and your pituitary gland, a tiny gland located below your brain, regulate the production of cortisol in your adrenal glands. When the levels of cortisol in your blood fall, your hypothalamus releases corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH), which directs your pituitary gland to produce adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). ACTH then stimulates your adrenal glands to produce and release cortisol.”

Supplements to Reduce Cortisol

If you have extremely high levels of cortisol, otherwise known as Cushing’s Syndrome, you’ll need medical treatment to regain control of them. But generally, you can lower and maintain your cortisol levels by getting quality sleep, regularly exercising, deep breathing, and limiting overall stress. In some cases, supplements can help manage cortisol levels, too.
