Tired all the time? Maybe you need to think about your stress levels. Stress can cause a hormone called cortisol to be released, and when this happens excessively because you’re stressed, it can lead to further issues. Cortisol is a big hitter in the body – it has enormous impacts on the way we function. It’s the hormone responsible for waking us up, keeping us alert, warm and compos-mentis; but it is also the driving force behind our all important ‘fight or flight’ response. Get stressed, and by that I don’t just mean emotionally, but physiologically (tired, hungover, injured, low blood sugar etc) and your cortisol is normally being secreted in increased amounts to help get you through. As important as this is, we don’t want too much cortisol floating around before bed as it keeps us awake, which doesn’t help with energy the next day either. This is a common problem I see with people who are living and working in stressful environments; even if they don’t feel stressed per-se, cortisol can often be raised for other reasons, meaning they either cant drop off to sleep or wake up at odd times.

What You'll Need

  • Magneisum
  • Try using herbs such as adaptogenic ashwaghanda, cordyceps and Siberian

What You'll Do

  • To stop cortisol from rising too much later in the day: Learn how to deal with stress. I fully realise that is easier said than done
  • Make sure you keep blood sugar balanced by eating often, with low GI carbs and protein rich meals and snacks. Avoid carb abundant dinners like pasta, risotto, pizza etc.
  • Stimulants like caffeine, sugar, sweeteners stimulate your adrenal glands to secrete cortisol and adrenaline so ensure you limit as much as possible and cut out after 4pm.
  • Take some magnesium – 300mg before bed is ideal, or have an Epsom salt bath
  • Try herbs such as (other are far too stimulatory) ginseng that have a balancing and restorative effects on the adrenals
