Cortisol regulates a wide range of biological processes including metabolism, immune response and stress.
As with most hormones, it should follow a circadian rhythm. High cortisol blood levels are present when you wake up in the morning, useful for keeping you alert, and low levels are present in the evening, which help you relax and enter a peaceful sleep.
The challenge for most people, however, is that their cortisol level does not follow a normal trajectory. Cortisol is often too high in the evening, making you feel nervous, temperamental and stressed, impeding a good night’s sleep.
DORMU’s weighted blankets counter this by facilitating a reduction in cortisol to a healthy level, which in turn reduces late-night stress and anxiety.
