H.P.N Stress off
WHAT HAPPENS TO STRESS?
Stress is a natural reaction to a stressful situation such as exercise, work, an argument or little sleep. In a very short time, a lot of adrenaline, norepinephrine and cortisol are released via the stress axis, which extends from the hypothalamus to the adrenal glands. These hormones ensure that we are able to perform at our best in the short term. Blood sugar levels rise, blood pressure rises, your pulse beats faster and all your senses are activated. This effect is often referred to as “fight or flight” mode. Basically, it’s not bad. If you are into hard training, you will definitely benefit from it. But as everyone knows, muscle building after training happens in regeneration and not in training.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE CORTISOL LEVEL IS TOO HIGH?
If you have a lot of stress at work, in everyday life or if you are on a strict diet, your body is constantly stressed. This stress causes you to constantly have elevated cortisol levels. These make it harder for you to sleep, lead to insulin resistance, which in turn can lead to you storing more fat in the abdomen and thereby impairing your regeneration. From approximately 45 minutes of sport, more cortisol is released and you must counteract this with appropriate relaxation after exercise. This is especially noticeable when you are trying to shed the last few pounds on a strict diet, with cardio at a maximum and calories at a minimum. The body is under constant stress and the last % KFA just won’t go down. Here you must pay particular attention to as little stress as possible, maximum relaxation and taking a cortisol-lowering supplement such as our Stress Off.
