Let’s talk about how to lower cortisol, lose belly fat, and support a healthy mood with a simple 1/2 cup of tea.
Cortisol is the main stress hormone. Many people are exposed to chronic high cortisol levels. When you’re exposed to high levels of cortisol over a long time, you could potentially develop cortisol resistance.
Cortisol resistance is a situation where you have high levels of cortisol in the body, but it’s not working as it should. This can lead to a cascade of health problems.
Some people end up with cortisol resistance due to stress, but others have a genetic weakness that can lead to this issue.
Potential effects of high cortisol:
• Belly fat
• Cognitive problems
• Metabolic syndrome
• Bone loss
• Insulin resistance
The best remedy to lower cortisol is a phytonutrient called EGCG in green tea. Drinking green tea regularly may help reduce stress and lower cortisol.
Other great natural remedies to lower cortisol:
• Emodin (Japanese knotweed)
