Foods That Lower Cortisol Levels (Naturally)

A list of healthy foods that lower cortisol
levels naturally. Cortisol is the stress hormone which is made by the adrenal glands in the body. This hormone is the bodies in-built alarm
system which triggers fight or flight in nature. The problem is that nowadays people often have too much cortisol which leads to some
major health problems in the body. High cortisol levels are one of the leading causes of belly fat, thyroid problems, allergies
and diabetes. It can also cause your muscles to break down and be converted to sugars, which leads to
many other issues. In today’s video we share with you a list of healthy foods that lower cortisol levels
naturally, including some wonderful herbs. 1. Brazil Nuts We recommend eating 1-2 brazil nuts each day
to help lower cortisol levels. These contain selenium and iodine to support hormonal health
throughout the body. 2. Avocado When the adrenal glands are pumping out too
much cortisol you will need lots of potassium to calm them down. Avocados are one of the
richest sources of this mineral. Eat these in healthy leafy green salads each day to
lower cortisol quickly. 3. Beet Tops The leaves on the top of beets are one of
the greatest sources of potassium. Eating foods high in potassium reduces cortisol,
anxiety, stress and helps you to sleep peacefully at night 4. Apple Cider Vinegar

thousands of years to treat hormone problems. This herb is an adaptogen, meaning that helps
