- Helps Control Stress
- Supports Mood
Cortisol is a hormone that’s become known as a bodybuilder, athlete’s, and fitness enthusiast's worst enemy. Secreted by the adrenal glands, cortisol is the catabolic hormone the body releases in response to stress, which includes the physical stress of intense training as well as the stresses of daily life. Perhaps surprisingly to some, the fact is that normal, healthy cortisol levels are important because it has key roles in how the body uses macronutrients, as well as the regulation of sleep, blood pressure, and blood glucose levels. However, excess cortisol is destructive and can cause such negative effects as fat gain, high blood pressure, reduced insulin sensitivity, poor mood, and loss of sleep.
If you want to stay in an anabolic environment, combat stress, enhance your mood, and control cortisol, PES has the answer for you – Omnizen!
