Feeling "foggy" and it’s not even lunchtime? The cause may be increased levels of cortisol.

10 Sep 2019

Do you feel tired and unable to concentrate in the middle of the day, when you should be most productive? Do you find yourself unable to fall asleep at night? Do you wake up still feeling tired?

These may be signs of excess cortisol in the body due to chronic stress.


Overexposure to cortisol can manifest as several symptoms:

  • Brain fog and mood changes
  • Fatigue, trouble sleeping
  • Weight gain, especially in the abdominal area
  • Facial puffiness and redness
  • Increased anxiety
  • Frequent urination
  • Irregular periods and fertility problems
  • A higher susceptibility to infections
  • High blood pressure
  • Acne and other skin problems
  • Higher risk for bone fractures and osteoporosis
  • Muscle fatigue
  • Decreased sex drive
  • A feeling of constant thirst

What is cortisol?

Cortisol is a hormone that’s triggered by the adrenal gland when stressed. Everyday stress can be quite normal: starting in the morning as we rush to get to work on time and can continue through the day. Unhealthy interpersonal relationships at work and at home, a fast-paced way of life, lack of sleep, inadequate nutrition… All of this can affect our stress levels.

Cortisol raises blood sugar in order to equip our bodies to cope with stressful situations. Unfortunately, frequent and long-term boosts to cortisol levels can also have adverse effects.

It can manifest as the symptoms listed above, which can have an impact on overall quality of life. In extreme cases, it can lead to adrenal burnout. Digging yourself out of burnout can be a long and arduous process.

Helping the body under the influence of long-term stress

A body exhibiting symptoms of stress can be helped in a timely manner, with carefully selected natural ingredients that help support the stress-response system.

Cordyceps mushrooms, ginseng and rose root are three powerful adaptogens which can, along with vitamin B5, increase resistance to various forms of stress and help restore vitality.

They work by improving adrenal function and balancing the production of key hormones, which helps control stress and prevents fatigue.

Stress should remain a natural mechanism of the body, helping us only when needed!
