In our day and time, we have become more stressed than our forefathers 50 years ago, in either the psychological or the physiological realm. When stress occurs, our bodies react by secreting cortisol. In the long term, if levels of this hormone remain high, it will provoke adrenal fatigue (chronic fatigue) and will also destabilize other body systems such as the thyroid and the endocrine system. Cortixia was developed specifically to decrease levels of cortisol in the body and promote healthy sleep. High levels of cortisol can cause build-up of fat predominately in the abdomen region. Cortixia helps to prevent this type of build-up as well as its other benefits in mood control, body recovery and a general increase in well-being.
