Cortisol is a steroid hormone produced by your adrenal glands, located right above your kidneys. Your Body naturally releases cortisol in response to a wide variety of stress factors. But high levels of cortisol can affect healthy blood pressure, sleep patterns, mood, and more. That’s why we created Cortisol Stress Balance. It helps maintain already-healthy cortisol levels, inhibits factors that can promote cortisol release and encourages your body’s healthy response to stress.
