How To Control Cortisol – Reduce Stress and Lose Weight

Dr Shawn Talbott, Ph.D., a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACMS) and the American Institue of Stress (AIS) and an expert in health management and faculty member at the University of Utah Department of Nutrition, has written a book entitled “The Cortisol Connection, Why Stress Makes You Fat and Ruins Your Health – And What You Can Do About It


In his book, Dr. Talbott explains that our bodies react to stress and anxiety by realeasing the “stress hormone” cortisol. Adaptogens work to moderate this spike in cortisol to normal, healthy, stress-free levels. He explores dieatary supplements, including adaptogens, that can be used to control cortisol levels.

The Cortisol Connection explains how the American lifestyle promotes elevated cortisol levels — too much fast food, not enough sleep and fast-paced schedules — and contributes to stress and weight gain.

“There is very good scientific and medical evidence to show that chronically elevated cortisol levels are associated with obesity, hypertension, diabetes, moodiness and Alhzeimer’s disease,” Talbott writes. “Adaptogenic herbs appear to provide a ‘buffering’ or ‘balancing’ action that counteracts an exaggerated adrenal response to stress and reduces cortisol secretion back down to normal levels.”

How to control cortisol? Primorye® Stress Relief Plus is packed with primary adaptogens that do precisely what Dr. Talbott focuses on in his book: lowering stress levels to promote a healthier lifestyle. It is a natural, healthy and proven way to avoid the side effects of stress — and promote weight loss. Especially when used in conjunction with O So Slender™ weight loss supplement program.
