  9. Hope everyone survived or is surviving the hurricane! Was just a bad storm here. Just a little flooding here and there. Kids were out of school but we still worked.

    After a few suggestions on Invictus, I will be applying earlier in the evening and post workout from here out. Although, I am a fairly easy going/relaxed person, I can tell Iím less stressed/donít get as worked up about things that would typically bother me. I have been sleeping very soundly as well. Overall inflammation seems
    To be improving a little as well.

    Todayís workout was great! Went up on a few of the lifts.

  12. Lavender oil is a known endocrine disruptor. No idea why someone would put this in a supplement.

    Cortisol is a beneficial hormone and a potent anti inflammatory so I really don't understand why people are bent on lowering it. It is helping your body respond to stress.

    You'd want to reduce the stressor, not your body's hormonal response to the stressor.

    It's good. Busy! New city, new house, baby, promotion at work, longer commute. It's been very busy. I've tried to stay consistent in the gym with 4 days per week (all I can manage), but my online presence has clearly suffered.

    The study is talking about the effects on prepubescent boys. I don't think any of us are prepubescent boys on here....might talk like it sometimes though. The bottle of Invictus that Kat is using is for women because the Invictus for men has cedarwood instead of lavender.
    As for control of the stressors compared to the control of cortisol, do you not take a fever reducing medicine when you have a fever? The fever is there to help you get better but if it gets too high, it needs to be controlled. Relieving the stressors is way easier said than done. To alleviate this, we take things to keep our bodies from producing too much cortisol which leads to all sorts of problems. Weight gain and muscle fatigue are probably the main things that this group are concerned about but the lowered blood pressure and other benefits are also welcome. While most of our bodies do a fantastic job of keeping homeostasis on a normal basis, when we start lifting heavy or often and adding in other supplements, our bodies don't always keep up.

    yes, lavender is not ideal for men. We created Invictus Lavender Edition for women. Invictus has become extremely popular with the ladies and the cederwood in the original product (for men) can cause complications with menstrual cycles (not to mention, most women are not fans of wearing cedar wood and cypress as a scent)...and has risks for women who are pregnant, or may be pregnant. If you're familiar, cedar wood is also used as an emmenagogue. We beta tested a few scents for women and lavender was a favorite among our beta testers and was also beneficial for it's calming effect.

    There is no doubt that cortisol is a beneficial hormone and has necessary functions, but it may also be a hinderance to many goals.

    The funny thing about stressors, your body doesn't know the difference between elevated cortisol cause by: a lion chasing you, work stress, relationship stress, fitness training (stress on the body), restricted carb diets, restricted calorie diets, stimulants like caffeine, etc...life. We live in an all the time society and are surrounded by stress, and we subject ourselves to greater and greater degrees of stress.

    Invictus is a tool to help you manage the impacts of stress.

    lets put some emphasis on stimulants increasing cortisol...lets face it most guys and gals on this forum use stimulants well above what would be considered 'NORMAL' use.

    Depends on if the persons cortisol response is appropriate or not. Low cortisol levels is not a good thing and neither is high cortisol levels. You definitely do not want to crush your cortisol response that is for certain.

    Manage is the key word here, you want to manage cortisol at appropriate levels.

    One would hope that people realize this, but many do not. Hell if diet pills did not increase cortisol then there wouldn't be much fat loss associated with them... well then again there isn't anyway.

    You and I are both aware of how cortisol limiting supplements can be a double edged sword. If you have arthritis, or other issues with inflammation then limiting cortisol is often an issue due to connective tissue issues starting to arise from it. Certainly these TD versions carry a slight bit of localization, that should minimize how much goes systemic, but they also go systemic as well. So using only on the abdomen helps somewhat but it is still something you have to be aware of when supplementing with something that manages cortisol.

    In the end, do some research, know the mode of action for a product and understand the system it is targeting, and what those changes can mean for you both negative and positive.
