I believe that cortisol is most famous as stress hormon. It is secreted by adrenal glands and extremely important for proper body function. It is involved in regulating glucose methabolism, regulation of blood pressure, insulin release to keep blood sugar level constant. It also effects immune function and inflammatory response. Higher levels of cortisol during stress are proven
Small increases of cortisol have also positive effects, like a quick burst of energy, heightened memory functions, stronger immunity, lower sensitivity to pain.
