There is no doubt that stress is a major factor in our overall health and well-being. But could it also be making you fat? Cortisol is a hormone secreted by the adrenal glands that when in balance aids in blood pressure control, reduces inflammation and supports our ability to adapt during stressful situations. However, when cortisol is secreted on a long term basis, it can adversely affect our health and lead to increased visceral or belly fat. High levels of the stress hormone cortisol can also disrupt blood sugar balance, increase cravings and disrupt estrogen and progesterone balance. Adaptogenic herbs are a unique class of healing plants that can help balance, restore and protect the body especially during times of long term chronic stress. Rhodiola is an herb that been around for thousands of years and has been long known for its ability to regulate blood sugar and enhance the transport of serotonin into the brain. When combined with Relora, it can have a positive effect on stress related fatigue, food cravings and provides a sense of satiety. Satiet-ease is a professional formula that combines these two powerful herbs that support healthy body fat distribution, positive mood, physical and emotional well-being.
