Example text

The early stages of chronic stress can be considered more of a hypercatabolic situation, characterized by accelerated tissue destruction, whereas the later stages put a person into more of a hypoanabolic state, where the ability to rebuild vital tissues is impaired. At this later stage, much of the damage has already been done—muscle and bone tissues are weaker, sex drive is reduced (because of low DHEA/testosterone, growth hormone, and sex steroids), and the person enters a vicious cycle of increased appetite, reduced caloric expenditure, and accelerated fat accumulation.

The coming chapters deal with HSD (Chapter 4), testosterone (Chapter 5), and the relationship between stress, cortisol, and disease (Chapter 6). The information in these chapters will help set the stage for you to make meaningful steps toward improving how you feel, how you look, and your risk profile for certain diseases. CHAPTER 4 • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • HSD: The Body’s “Fat Storage” Enzyme ne of the complicating factors in the stress/cortisol/fat relationship is a little enzyme deep within fat cells called HSD— short for 11 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase-1.

It simply means that supplements, for the majority of people, represent something they can realistically incorporate into their already busy daily lives and that can have a powerfully beneficial impact on controlling stress and balancing cortisol levels. Many of the dietary supplements covered in this book have been used for centuries as part of traditional medicinal regimens. In some cases the modern scientific evidence for a beneficial health effect of a supplement is quite strong, while in other cases the evidence is weak or nonexistent.
