Cortisol, a hormone produced in the adrenal glands, plays an important role in the body's regulation of cardiovascular function and fat, protein and carbohydrate utilization.
When the body experiences stress, cortisol secretion increases, thus causing a breakdown of muscle protein and the release of amino acids to form glucose via gluconeogenesis.
The resulting higher level of glucose in the body, combined with the decreased use of glucose by other tissues in the body, ensures that the brain is receiving adequate energy.
Continuing research indicates that stress and anxiety can have a significant impact on the body's health and wellbeing.
Stress is a part of life, but even a more important part of dieting. When the body undergoes stress, it can cause hormonal imbalance or irregularity that can work directly against your efforts in trying to lose weight. It also will negatively affect your quality of life and general wellness. A 2000 study found that women who gained weight as a result of stress were less able to adapt to and manage stressful conditions. As a result, this increased weight presents itself as abdominal fat. Proper supplementation is necessary to help regulate and control these hormones, like Cortisol.
While cortisol secretion is an important part of the body's response to stress, the prolonged secretion of cortisol can have detrimental effects to the proper functioning of the body's cardiovascular, immune, neurological and metabolic systems.
Relora®, an ingredient in Sereniti, is a patent-pending combination of two herbal extracts of Magnolia and Phellodendron bark (Asian cork tree). Both herbs have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for several hundred years.
Relora® was not found to cause sedation, though 74% of the patients had more restful sleep. Additionally, no adverse side effects were reported during the trial. A second human trial studied the effects of Relora® on salivary dehydroepistandrosterone (DHEA) and cortisol levels in patients with mild to moderate stress. The effects of stress on the body are sometimes associated with lower levels of DHEA and higher levels of cortisol. Two weeks of Relora® increased salivary DHEA by 227% and decreased total salivary cortisol by 37%. Both hormones were brought into the normal range.
