Anxiety is a complicated issue and in various episodes I’ve discussed how the gut plays into mood, stress and anxiety as well as different types of stress responses and stress management skills. In this episode however, I’m going to dive a bit deeper just into how cortisol plays into anxiety and fear – and it’s a lot more complicated than “high cortisol makes you feel stressed and anxious”.
Cortisol metabolism, inflammation and the cortisol awakening response (which indicates our ability to recover from stress) all come into play and I cover that all as well as also how we assess these various aspects and which supplements and lifestyle habits will help.

Did you know that 95% of women taking a prenatal are still nutrient deficient? The founders of Needed saw this as a big problem and I couldn’t agree more! But Needed quickly became a bigger solution to a bigger problem by providing more options for moms and moms to be. Women need so much support during the time from thinking about getting pregnant all the way to having little ones and so often they are left with options that don’t address their needs (prenatals that have nutrients in the wrong forms or that they can’t take due to nausea) or they are left with low energy, anxiety or even colds/flus while they are pregnant or nursing because there aren’t natural products that are considered safe during these times. Needed solved all of these problems as well as created a community of no-guilt, education and support for new moms and moms to be.
