    Controlling Cortisol

    We all know cortisol is not beneficial for those looking to enhance the physique. As someone on high doses of prescription adderall, I understand that my cortisol levels could be through the roof (doctor will confirm via bloodwork at next appointment).

    I know the products advertised on tv are bogus. I was wondering if anyone takes supplements to control or lower cortisol levels. An old Flex mag of mine suggested Chromium Picolinate might help, but I'm not really convinced.

    Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Thx in advance,

    Blitz

    Go to your doctor and have him run a bloodwork on you.

    I am actually going later this week myself. My family has thyroid issues, and I'm going to be tested myself and see where my test levels are at.
    I do my best to focus on the task at hand, and give 100% in what I'm doing at the time. Nothing else matters except the task at hand.

    Bloodwork will not reflect your cortisol levels appropriately. You need to do a salivary cortisol ASI test. This test is done 4 times per day with your circadian rhythms. It's the only test that is going to show where a problem may lie with cortisol levels.

    That is false information. Yes, you want to increase your Vit C with cortisol issues but it will NOT control cortisol in any way, shape or form.
