iStressedOut is formulated to lower cortisol (stress hormone) levels in the body.
Cortisol is a hormone released from the cortex of the adrenal glands in response to stress. Under any kind of stress, the body needs quick energy. When cortisol is released, it breaks down anything in its pathway and converts it to usable sugars. The body will willingly sacrifice itself for survival. If stress continues long-term, the body recognizes that it cannot sacrifice itself any longer, so the body will place a layer of belly fat on the hips (spare tire). Thus, the cortisol can now breakdown the fat in the mid-section instead of sacrificing the other important tissues in the nearby area.
