Choose a high-fiber, high-protein, meal alternative drink powder with a low glycemic index and low calories. These shakes should contain extracts from the ashwagandha plant that have shown potential to decrease blood serum levels of cortisol and to reduce stress. Cortisol-a hormone created by the adrenal glands-is released into the blood as the result of stress or anxiety, and it also plays a role in the body’s sleep/wake cycle. When an individual is exposed to constant or chronic stress, levels or cortisol remain elevated in the body, disrupting the body’s ability to relax and it’s ability to sleep naturally. Chronic stress and abnormally elevated cortisol levels have also been associated with increased cravings and with increased levels of obesity and abdominal weight.
