Cortisol is a steroid hormone and is released by the adrenal gland in response to stress or low blood glucose. It is responsible for controlling the body’s blood sugar levels, regulating metabolism, acting as an anti-inflammatory, influencing memory formation, controlling salt and water balance, influencing blood pressure and helping development of a foetus in pregnant women.
Cortisol balance is essential for human health and problems may arise if the adrenal gland releases too much or too little cortisol. Cortisol levels can become imbalanced during the different stages of adrenal fatigue.
