Overview

The hormone cortisol, activated by the fight-or-flight (stress) response, is emerging as a major culprit in a variety of health problems. The Cortisol Connection explores the documented relationship between elevated levels of this hormone, chronic stress, and such health conditions as obesity, depression, suppressed immune system, osteoporosis, and hypertension. The book shows how to control cortisol through supplements, dozens of which are discussed in detail in a chapter on the SENSE program (Stress Management, Exercise, Nutrition, Supplementation, Evaluation), with short, practical recommendations in each category. Also included are warnings on the use of ephedra- and caffeine-based weight-loss supplements, which actually cause weight gain, along with resources and references.
