CORTISOL
TEST
STRESS AND DEPRESSION

Cortisol is released in response to fear or stress

by the adrenalin as part of the fight-or-flight mechanism. There are two types of "stress", eustress (the good stress and distress (the bad stress).

Both eustress and distress releases cortisol as

your body becomes ready for action but there

has to be a physical release of fight-or-flight. Otherwise, cortisol levels build up in the blood, which can damage your mind and body.

Elevated cortisol levels interfere with learning and memory, lower immune function, bone 

density, increase weight gain, blood pressure, cholesterol, and heart disease. Chronic stress

and elevated cortisol levels also increase risk

for depression and mental illness.

Things you can do to prevent; Regular physical activity, mindfulness, yoga or meditation, social connectivity, laughter and levity, music and

nature.
