In this video, Dr. Berg talks about cortisol and the quality of sleep. Cortisol is at a circadian rhythm (*hormones wave changes that follow daily cycle).
8am: highest cortisol level
12 midnight and 2am: lowest cortisol level (deep sleep)
Circadian Waves are influenced by a lot of things like hormones (Neurotransmitters – serotonin, melatonin made by the pineal gland in the brain).
Triggers of Cortisol: • Physical / Emotional Stress • Caffeine • Sugar • EMF • Overtraining Nutrients to Help Reduce Cortisol • Potassium • Vitamin B1 • Magnesium • Walking – O2
