Stress

and the Adrenal Cortex

Adrenal Gland

Located above the kidneys, the Adrenal Gland produces hormones like Cortisol, Adrenaline, and Aldosterone. Although these hormones are essential to survival, sometimes our bodies release too much at unnecessary times, and can cause dangerously high, even fatal amounts, of these hormones being released.

The Stress Hormone

The Adrenal Gland, like said before, is the main contributor to the release of Cortisol and other hormones. Cortisol is first made by the Adrenal Gland, then travels to the Hypothalamus and then to the Pituitary Gland. This process ensures that the Cortisol in your body keeps your brain alert in times that need extra attention.

Cortisol Controls:

  • Blood sugar (glucose) levels
  • Fat, protein and carbohydrate metabolism to maintain blood glucose (gluconeogenesis)
  • Immune responses
  • Anti-inflammatory actions
  • Blood pressure
  • Heart and blood vessel tone and contraction
  • Central nervous system activation

Anxiety;

defined by a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease. It can be as subtle as once in your life - or as intense as more than once daily. Many people deal with anxiety (around 25% of people over the age of 18), but only some have an actually anxiety disorder, involving anxiety attacks, panic attacks, and unnecessary stress.
How Anxiety Affects the Brain: Anxiety causes the same "fight or flight" response that stress does, however, anxiety is an unwelcome feeling, while stress can be caused by excitement or nervousness. Anxiety hormones are designed to enhance your speed, reflexes, heart rate, and circulation, and removing these hormones may create a greater risk for danger, when your body doesn't respond as quickly.
