    certainly one of the cheapest ways is through vitamin C, and I know YJ is fond of orange juice as an easy method of obtaining it, as well as simple vitamin consumption... you can go heavy on the C, good threads about it around. eating small meals frequently... not wasting time in the gym is important, so if you haven't done that streamline your training to make it as efficient and productive as you can... sleep more, lower stress... other than that I'm not sure that there are too many other cost effective ways...?

    Vitamin B5 has been used to inhibit cortisol induced stress, so I assume it works by inhibiting the cortisol.

    Don't watch the news.
    Learn to breathe with deep breathes instead of the short shallow breaths most people use.
    Any mood elevator would help, though not directly. I like 5-HTP but it makes some people sleepy when taken in the daytime.

    On that note, I've seen a study that had senior citizens supplementing with 2 grams of vitamin C per day and it effectively lowered their cholesterol levels.

    Getting rid of stress greatly reduces cortisol... its a stress hormone
