Is Stress Making Your Belly Bloat?

Updated: Jan 22

Our endocrine system produces anabolic hormones, which are designed to build things, and catabolic hormones, which tear things down – both types are not designed to stay in our system for long periods, but to be produced and used as-needed. When under stress, the body's adrenal glands produce cortisol.

Last year, I gave this super-easy protocol a try and loved the results I felt and saw. Check out how you can jumpstart your endocrine health, too. Woohoo!

The Body

Cortisol is a catabolic hormone, so if it's in your system for too long or at too high a level, it will completely tear things up if it's there for too long (like muscles, your heart, etc.). It's produced by the adrenal gland in response to stress and low blood sugar. Remember learning about the fight or flight response in grade school? This hormone is there to help you survive and it is important!

However, imbalanced cortisol levels can have negative health consequences such as feelings of fatigue, difficulty maintaining healthy weight, and difficulty maintaining optimal cardiovascular health. This can happen when it's produced too frequently or isn't processed well by your system. When too much is produced and released, it can cause a bit of a stress belly situation.

With all the natural stress in everyday living, this is one area where it would be nice to have something simple to help keep your body in check!

Are you experiencing any feelings of fatigue despite adequate sleep, struggling to maintain a healthy weight, or having difficulty maintaining optimal health of your cardiovascular system? There's a proprietary dietary supplement that's here for you.

Why Your Body Will Love CortiStop

CortiStop® supports balanced cortisol levels through balanced production as well as maintaining healthy pathways. Its ingredients support a lot of things, such as proper hormone functions and the body's healthy response to inflammation. The Fennel in CortiStop® supports the digestive system, which can take a hit when your adrenal system is imbalanced. Frankincense supports the digestive, neurological, and immune systems and Peppermint is a huge digestive system, blood sugar, and body temperature supporter and assists in balanced pH.

Life can be stressful, even when you're happy. Taking care of ALL of your systems is super important and too often our hormones are overlooked unless we're going through puberty or menopause. Taking care of your endocrine system should be a life-long focus! And let me tell ya, I found my metabolism looooves the support I get from this supplement and my body is very clearly able to show how well supported it is, particularly in my midsection. ;)

CortiStop® Ingredients Include...

  • Fennel is supportive of the circulatory, glandular, respiratory, and digestive systems. It also may support feelings of well-being during the menstrual cycle.

  • Peppermint offers digestion support by promoting healthy intestinal function and gastrointestinal comfort and soothing. It is supportive to the nervous and respiratory systems and encourages healthy muscles, bones, and skin.

  • Clary Sage offers hormonal support.

  • Canadian Fleabane offers cardiovascular and hormonal system support. Frankincense encourages emotional balance and healthy skin. It provides immune and nervous system support.

Usage Guidelines / What the Bottle Says

While it's suggested that you can take 2-4 per day before breakfast. If you're dealing with a lot of stress, for extra benefits, take another two capsules before bed and get on top of taking care of that system. Use daily for 8 weeks.

Follow those directions to go off of the supplement for two-to-four weeks before resuming, though, especially if you're new to addressing your endocrine system and adrenal glands. You simply cycle on and off of this supplement as needed. Think of CortiStop® as an alternator in a car - it gets things going in your system, plus, you want to support your system working well on its own and not become dependent on the supplement.

Since CortiStop® would be like an alternator, you'll need a battery to keep everything on, so EndoFlex, Progessence Plus, Lady Sclareol, or SclarEssence are highly recommended to pair up while using this supplement and to continue system support when you're not taking the capsules.

CortiStop® is not just for women; it's totally for men, too. However, it's not recommended for kids, use during pregnancy, nursing moms, or for those experiencing adrenal fatigue (there are other things you would want to do to address adrenal). Check with your physician for adolescent / teen use. You can also ask your health-care professional about getting an Adrenal Stress Index test to help you determine whether or not your adrenal levels are too high, low, etc..
