The Impact of Stress & Weight Gain

As we all know, “Life be LIFING“ as the young people are saying these days! The stress of daily life and unplanned events the contribute to cause stress can take a toll of our overall health and wellness. While we can’t always take the demand of stress off our plate……we can do things that impact HOW we deal with stress as well as how the body responds!


So what happens on the inside when we are Stressed Out?

Increase in Cortisol Levels

The body uses the stress response to activate energy to use for a fight or flight response: Cortisol levels are increased that in- turn increases glucose levels. The breakdown of carbs and sugars are decreased at this time as they body thinks it needs to use them for a fight or flight response.


Chronic stress leads to the dysregulation of this cycle causing cravings for high sugar and carb food, poor glucose control, and fat storage.



Down Regulation of the Thyroid Hormone

During times of stress, the function of the thyroid is decreased in turn the hormones T3 & T4 are also decreased. The thyroid is directly related to the metabolism. Decreased levels of TSH slow metabolism and can also lead to hypothyroidism or subclinical hypothyroidism due to stress! This results in poor energy and motivation.


Reduced Insulin Sensitivity: Insulin Resistance

In response to cortisol levels, more insulin is secreted to decrease glucose levels. There is decreased insulin sensitivity during times of stress. This makes the body unable to store glucose effectively and leads to the conversion of fat.


Grehlin Secretion:

Grehlin Secretion is a hormone in the GI tract that has a strong connection with the brain. It is released from the GI tract that stimulates hunger and fat disposition. Increased levels of Grehlin during times of stress - trigger an increase in appetite.


Along with other measures to reduces stress, the Adrenal & Stress Support supplement helps to combat the effects of stress on the body using a balances of amount of herbs to promote rest, relaxation, and decrease anxiety without sedative effects.


The Gut Connection:

Stress triggers blooms of pathogenic bacteria in the Gut that need carbs and sugars to thrive! These bacteria also lead to inflammation that is linked to chronic disease, persistent gastro-intestinal issues, auto-immune disease and cancer!
