And wouldn’t you think that highly stressed individuals would (most likely) have a messed up ratio - at least, after a distressing period of time?
Testosterone - not the magazine, but the “supplement” - is the best “anti-cortisol” product out there.
Stress, physical and mental causes cortisol release, regardless of the testosterone levels of the individual. When that stress happens, cortisol is released, and then muscle breaks down and the subsequent leak of BCAAs causes a huge spike in insulin which causes fat storage.
Some people might really benefit from a cortisol reducing supplement or anti-cort…whatever.
Thanks for the lecture. It illustrates that a little bit of knowledge is dangerous.
Testosterone is the best “anti-cortisol” supplement out there. If you don’t know why that is, and if you don’t know why “anti-cortisol” is in quotes, then you need to spend a lot less time lecturing and a lot more time reading some college textbooks.
Instead of worrying about “blocking” coritsol, it makes a lot more sense to worry about the ratio between cortisol and testosterone. It’s when this ratio is out of whack that you begin experiencing problems.[/quote]
