Cortisol and Running

Cortisol Levels and Exercise

The AIRWAAV Performance Mouthpiece can help reduce cortisol levels when you take part in endurance exercises like running. Cortisol is sometimes called the stress hormone. That’s because the adrenal gland produces more of it when you are under stress, whether mental or physical. Cortisol can be helpful in certain ways. For example, it can help control blood sugar levels, reduce inflammation, assist with memory formulation, and regulate metabolism. It also helps to maintain the sodium and water balance in your body and can even help control blood pressure. There is a reason your body emits cortisol during times of stress. It’s what produces the “fight or flight” response when under extreme pressure.

However, too much of a good thing is not always better, and that’s the case with cortisol. You’re probably not surprised that being under constant stress causes many types of problems, including headaches, high blood pressure, and mood changes. These are all symptoms of too much cortisol. 

But did you realize that running, especially high-intensity or endurance running, can also put the body under a great deal of stress? When you’re running to reach positive fitness, training, or competition goals, your body misinterprets exercise as stressful, producing cortisol at high rates. This can lead to some effects that are just about the opposite of what you’re running for. You could experience weight gain in the back or belly, weakened muscles, extreme fatigue that even sleep doesn’t help, and brain fog or concentration issues. In short, the thing you’re doing to better your health and endurance may start to cause health problems.

If you want to turn in your best performance, it’s necessary to do something to reduce cortisol levels when you run, and that is exactly what the AIRWAAV Performance Mouthpiece is designed to do. Continue reading to learn how it works and how you can use different foods to help reduce cortisol levels.

10 Foods That Reduce Cortisol Levels Naturally

The AIRWAAV was in research and development for 15 years as its inventor, Dr. Dena Garner, fine-tuned it to perfection. She has published numerous peer-reviewed articles that show the science that backs up the fact that the AIRWAAV Performance Mouthpiece reduces cortisol and lactic acid. Therefore, you can trust that it is a great solution to reduce excess cortisol during running.

The mouthpiece is made of our patented VistaMaxx material, which is soft enough for your comfort and strong enough to be worn run after run. The AIRWAAV has two primary features that work together to make your body use oxygen more efficiently as you run. The bite plate is placed over your lower molars and you clench your teeth lightly together as you run. This helps position your jaw in a beneficial way. The intake bar is placed against your lower front teeth. You tuck your tongue forward and under the intake bar. 

The combination of your tongue placement and the position your jaw takes when you clench your teeth on the bite plate work together to open your airway by nearly 10 percent. This gives you increased endurance by reducing your respiratory rate by 20 percent, which reduces lactic acid production. You may also experience faster recovery times as it reduces cortisol production by up to 50 percent. The increased strength and muscle endurance aid you in running at your maximum capacity for longer.
