Cort RX – Adrenal Cortex Support
Everybody experiences stress. There is no escaping it. Some people thrive and cope with the stress, while other suffer the effects of stress. Cort RX won’t eliminate your stress but it will help you cope with it.
Stress affects our body in different ways but chronic stress, such as finances, relationships and sometimes where you work are new to the human body. Strangely, we actually evolved as stress being our best friend. If we were getting chased by a Saber-toothed tiger, being stressed would have saved our life! Massive amounts of adrenalin and cortisol would have been released by the body so as we could (hopefully) out run or out fight the beast. If we didn’t have that response, we would have been the big cat’s lunch.
Now days, most of us aren’t being chased by big cats but our genes are still programmed that way. The ‘beast’ chasing us today is chronic, long term (day/week/year) stress unlike the tiger’s ‘minutes’ of stress. This means our body is pumping out lots more cortisol (a stress hormone) than we know what to do with. Long term elevated cortisol has catastrophic effects throughout the body such as increased fat mass, loss of muscle mass, a reduced immune system and much more. Yet here we are with the mortgage, stressful job and even environmental stress we simply can’t escape. We just have to manage these unavoidable stressors better.
