Are you familiar with Cortisol and the effects it has on your long term health?  It is an adrenal hormone that works together with insulin and glucagon to regulate energy levels. In normal levels it regulates immune response. It is released more frequently when we are under chronic stress. Your sleep is the first thing affected by Cortisol. Other consequences include suppressed immune function, chronically elevated blood sugar levels, decreased insulin sensitivity by releasing glucose and fatty acids from the liver, an eventual spare tire around your waist, impaired long term memory, decreased sex drive/libido, and “oh no ladies” wrinkles.
