Cortisol, the primary stress hormone, is produced by our body when they come under physical and / or mental strain. When released, cortisol causes a narrowing of the arteries.
Chronic stress can lead to a build-up of plaque in your arteries. There’s a very valid reason why we have the saying “calm down or you’ll give yourself a heart attack.”
These are just some of the ways in which stress and in particular out of control or chronic stress has a negative effect on your body. There are many more such examples. For this reason, managing stress levels is very important, particularly in those who are already coping with an illness.
