About Cortisol

Cortisol is a steroid hormone made in the adrenal glands, which are small glands adjacent to the kidneys. Its important functions in the body include roles in the regulation of blood pressure and cardiovascular function as well as regulation of the body's use of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Cortisol secretion increases in response to any stress in the body, whether physical (such as illness, trauma, surgery, or temperature extremes) or psychological. When cortisol is secreted, it causes a breakdown of muscle protein, leading to release of amino acids (the "building blocks" of protein) into the bloodstream. These amino acids are then used by the liver to synthesize glucose for energy, in a process called gluconeogenesis. This process raises the blood sugar level so the brain will have more glucose for energy. At the same time the other tissues of the body decrease their use of glucose as fuel. Cortisol also leads to the release of so-called fatty acids, an energy source from fat cells, for use by the muscles. Taken together, these energy-directing processes prepare the individual to deal with stressors and ensure that the brain receives adequate energy sources.

Recent research suggests that the root of weight gain may be related to stress and your body’s reaction to stress. When we experience stress, our bodies will release cortisol to help mobilize enough energy to allow you to manage that stress. If cortisol levels are elevated over a period of months or years, those high levels can have a profound negative impact on our overall health. New research has focused on the correlation between elevated cortisol levels and weight gain, insulin resistance and the development of Type II Diabetes.

Corti-Cut is the only product of its kind that addresses all of these areas so you can burn more fat, lose more weight and get the best possible results quickly! Combining proper nutrition with the proper dietary supplement is essential to getting fast results that last. Corti-Cut’s unique blend of ingredients make it an indispensable part of your weight loss and anti-aging program. Corti-Cut ingredients work together to help suppress appetite and sugar cravings, increase thermogenesis (fat burning) and block cortisol secretion.

About Abnormal Cortisol Levels:

Certain drugs can lead to increased cortisol levels. Examples include the diuretic spironolactone and estrogen hormone therapy. Low cortisol levels can be due to drug therapy with androgens or the anti-seizure medication phenytoin. Highly-trained athletes can have higher-than-average cortisol levels, and women in the last trimester of pregnancy also generally have elevated cortisol levels. Recent research has even shown that drinking 2-3 cups of coffee per day can elevate cortisol levels. Likely due to the increased physical and psychological stresses associated with these conditions, persons suffering from depression, anxiety, panic disorder, malnutrition and alcohol abuse also often have elevated cortisol values. Rare tumors of the adrenal glands or pituitary gland can also lead to abnormally high levels of cortisol.

Cushing's Syndrome

Persons exposed to abnormally high levels of cortisol over time develop a syndrome known as Cushing's Syndrome.

This condition generally affects adults, and approximately 10-15 per million persons will develop this condition each year. Signs and symptoms of Cushing's Syndrome include elevated blood pressure, development of diabetes, pink-to-purple stretch marks on the abdominal skin, fatigue, depression, moodiness, and accentuated fatty tissue on the face and upper back. Women with Cushing's Syndrome often have irregular menstrual periods and develop new facial hair growth. Men may show a decrease in sex drive. Treatment options are varied and depend on the cause of the excess cortisol.

Addison's Disease

Primary problems with the adrenal glands or with the pituitary gland can lead to a condition known as Addison's Disease, in which the adrenal glands fail to produce adequate amounts of cortisol. President Kennedy had this condition. This condition occurs in persons of all ages and affects approximately one in 100,000 people per year. Symptoms are fatigue, low blood pressure, weight loss, weakness, loss of appetite, moodiness, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. The production of other hormones by the adrenal is also often affected, with reduced levels of the hormone aldosterone, which is important for body salt and water balance, often accompanying the reduction in cortisol. This condition can be treated by the administration of synthetic steroid hormone preparations.

Corti-Cut: For Reduction of Body Fat and Cortisol Levels 

Recent research suggests that the root of your weight gain may be related to stress and your body’s reaction to stress. When we experience stress, our bodies will release cortisol to help mobilize enough energy to allow you to manage that stress. If cortisol levels are elevated over a period of months or years, those high levels can have a profound negative impact on our overall health.

  Managing stress starts with controlling cortisol levels in your body. Corti Cut contains the latest nutraceuticals to assist in the reduction of cortisol levels and includes nutrients for appetite suppression and sugar control.

The Role of Stress & Weight Gain - The Vicious Cycle
• Daily stress elevates cortisol levels.
• Cortisol is a fat storing hormone.
• Chronically elevated cortisol levels lead to rises in blood sugar levels.
• Appetite and sugar cravings increase.
• Elevated cortisol levels and elevated sugar levels signal the body to store fat especially in the abdomen and facial areas.

Breaking “The Vicious Cycle” with Corti-Cut

This cycle can be effectively broken when you:
• Regulate cortisol levels.
• Decrease appetite and cravings.
• Balance blood sugar levels.

Corti Cut is the only product of its kind that addresses all of these areas so you can burn more fat, lose more weight and get the best possible results quickly! Combining proper nutrition with the proper dietary supplement is essential to getting fast results that last.. Corti Cut’s unique blend of ingredients make it an indispensable part of your weight loss and exercise program. Corti Cut ingredients work together to help suppress appetite and sugar cravings, increase thermogenesis (fat burning) and block cortisol secretion.

Take Corti Cut and know that you're losing more weight, burning more fat and getting the best results possible!

The Role of Ingredients

Calming and Relaxing, Decrease in Depression, Enhance Work Performance, Eliminate Fatigue, Normalize Functions Impacted by Stress

L-Theanine is an amino acid derived from green tea. L-Theanine is a precursor to GABA, an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain and has a significant effect on the release of dopamine and serotonin, also neurotransmitters. L-Theanine has a distinct calming and relaxing effect and is used extensively in natural medicine for the relief of stress, anxiety and tension. When stress levels decrease, it inhibits the release of excess cortisol.

Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Palmitate) is a fat-soluble form vitamin C. The most available form of vitamin C is ascorbic acid. Because ascorbic acid is water soluble, bioavailabllity and absorption are a problem. The uptake is quick but its penetration of the cellular membrane is very limited, This form of vitamin C is not stored in the body. Unlike ascorbic acid, Ascorbyl Palmitate is able to be stored in cell membranes until needed by the body. Ascorbyl Palmitate is absorbed quickly but because it is fat soluble, it also reaches into the deep layers of human cells much more readily.

Rhodiola Rosea is a plant native to Eastern Siberia where it is known as "golden root". Rhodiola Rosea has a reputation for stimulating the nervous system, decreasing depression, enhancing work performance and eliminating fatigue. Rhodiola Rosea is an adaptogen. An ‘adaptogen’ is an agent that allows an organism to counteract adverse physical, chemical or biological stressors and normalize the functions of the organism. Twenty-eight compounds have been Isolated from the roots and leaves of the Rhodiola Rosea plant. The roots contain a range of biologically active substances including organic acids, flavonoids, tannins, and phenolic glycosides. The stimulating and adaptogenic properties of Rhodiola Rosea were originally attributed to two compounds isolated from its roots, p-tyrosol and the phenolic glycoside rhodioloside. Additional glycoside compounds isolated from the root include rhodioniside, rhodiolin, rosin, rosavin, rosarin, and rosiridin.

Chromium Polynicotinate is a patented complex of the trace minera1 chromium and picolinic acid, a naturally occurring metabolite. It is a highly bio-available and readily absorbed form of chromium. Chromium is important for the management of insulin. Chromium also helps to increase energy levels and improve metabolism of sugars. 

Phosphatidylserine (PS) is used mainly for its ability to reduce blood levels of cortisol. Elevated cortisol production not only contributes to weight gain, but it also accelerates amino acid catabolism that could lead to increased muscle breakdown, Thus, suppression of cortisol levels could help to maintain muscle mass during periods of increased stress and intense training. An added benefit is that PS is also a proven brain-support nutrient. Double blind studies of this nutrient confirmed that it improves memory, learning, concentration and mood.

Magnolia Bark Extract (Magnolia officinalia) is included in this formula as an anti-stress and anti-anxiety agent that helps to control cortisol levels. Magnolia bark is rich in two biophenol compounds, magnolol and honokiol, which contribute to the primary anti-stress and cortisol-lowering effects of the plant.

Green Tea Extract contains active compounds (a family of polyphenols, catechins, and f1avonols) that are known to possess potent antioxidant activity. Several catechins are present in significant quantities: epicatechin (EC), epigallocatechin (EGC), epicatechin gallate (ECG) and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG makes up about 10-50% of the total catechin content and appears to be the most powerful of the catechins. in this formula, Green Tea Extract has been added for the role catechins play in promoting weight loss. Green Tea Extract suppresses the appetite, increases thermogenesis and assists in the regulation of body weight.

Bitter Orange Peel (Citrus Aurantium) contains the active compound synephrine. Synephrine is chemically very similar to ephedrine and pseudo-ephedrine found in many OTC cold/allergy medications and ephedra found in a number of weight loss products. Even though synephrine is similar to these stimulants, it does not appear to have the same negative central nervous effects of these compounds. Bitter Orange Peel is used in this formula to stimulate fat metabolism and to assist in providing an energy boost, suppressing appetite and increasing caloric expenditure and metabolic rate.

Corti-Cut PM: For Wake Up Refreshed, Recovered and Redefined 

CORTI-CUT-PM  60 capsules. Corti-Cut PM is the ultimate full spectrum cortisol- reducing supplement that supports the body’s nighttime regenerating hormones. One of the most important times to manage high cortisol levels is at night. 

 

Cortisol levels rise slowly throughout the night, peaking at about the time you wake up. Unfortunately, high cortisol levels cancel the benefits of a number of rejuvenating and fat reducing hormones. 

L-Arginine Pyroglutamate and GABA both increase growth hormone secretion from the pituitary gland. L-Tyrosine increases thyroxin secretion from the thyroid gland. Corti-Cut PM contains five important amino acids that help support growth hormone and testosterone while simultaneously decreasing cortisol levels.

Corti-Cut PM is the ultimate full spectrum cortisol-reducing supplement that supports the body’s nighttime regenerating hormones.

The Role of Ingredients

L-Tyrosine - aids adrenal gland function and relieves excess stress put on the glands.  Helps reduce cortisol levels while supporting fat burning thyroid hormone synthesis.

L-Arginine Pyroglutamate - Helps increase growth hormone secretion-the body’s main anti-aging hormone. Pyroglutamate form is up to ten times more effective at GH release than arginine alone.

L-Carnitine Fumarate - increase fat burning and energy production in the cell.  Also increases luteinizing hormone thereby protecting anabolic hormone levels. Carnitine encourages the pituitary gland to secret more LH (Luteinizing Hormone) which signals the testes to produce more testosterone.

L-Theanine - relaxing, calm focussing amino acid that helps reduce cortisol levels.

GABA (Gamma AminoButyric Acid) - amino acid derivative that increases growth hormone secretion and relieves nighttime anxiety improving sleep quality. Corti-Cut PM also contains four of the most important cortisol reducing nutraceuticals.

Phosphatidylserine - Phospholipid clinically proven to lower cortisol levels.

Holy Basil - an amazing adaptogenic herb that improves sleep patterns and lowers cortisol levels.

Rhodiola Rosea - another incredible adaptogenic herb that deepens sleep, reduces cortisol levels and supports anabolic hormones and brain neurotransmitters.

Inositol - Lipotropic B complex vitamin known to combat stress.
