The Impact Of Training on the Hormones Of Special Operations Soldiers With Possible Applications to Tactical LE
Some interesting research going on at locals such as Natick Army Labs looking at the effects of
Stress, training, lack of sleep, and or reduced calories and their effects on hormones.
After identifying which hormones take a nose dive in response to high levels of stress, etc and which are correlated to performance, there may be an effort to alter/maintain those hormones which could allow SOF/Tactical LE to extend/improve their performance operationally speaking. Nutritional interventions are being examined (some of which I covered in my articles here) as well as other possible interventions that could be of considerable benefit to members of the military and law enforcement community, specifically – but not limited to – SOF and Tactical LE.
