Do you know what cortisol is?
Cortisol is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands to give us an additional boost of energy when we need it. It has been called the “Death Hormone” because it accelerates the aging process and reduces Human Growth Hormone (the ANTI-AGING hormone). Cortisol is produced by the adrenal glands.
Gary Young recently said that cortisol stimulates the desire for food in addition to causing the body to become more acidic, creating inflammation, and building more fat cells.
When our cortisol levels are too high, we may experience any or all of the following:
- Adrenal Exhaustion
- Rapid Aging
- Low Estrogen
- Low Testosterone
- Higher percentage of fat cells
- Obesity (Recently studies have shown that obesity is a huge factor in breast cancer – that there is a 40% greater risk of breast cancer in those who are obese.)
So WHY do we have it???
Without cortisol, we would not choose to awaken in the morning. It is also important in the elimination of the worn out cells that are no longer supporting us.
The key is all about BALANCE.
So WHAT can balance cortisol when we all often have too much as we go about our stressful lives?
SLIQUE TEA HAS BEEN SHOWN TO LOWER CORTISOL LEVELS!!! This is great news for ALL of us. If you are not overweight, Slique Tea may be perfect for YOU as well as for your friends and relatives who are overweight. Remember, the Young Living products work to bring about BALANCE in the body.
Note: After hearing Gary Young speak about this effect of Slique Tea, I have begun drinking it after previously deciding that I did not “need it” since I do not need to lose weight. I am still feeling great, and I guess we will have to watch to see if the aging effects are less evident as I approach my 70th birthday!
