Allostatic load

PartnerMichele Bellone



Allostasis is the process that maintains the internal stability of an organism through physiological or
behavioural change. It’s a way to respond and adapt to environmental and societal variations.

However, a persistent exposure to adverse circumstances can lead to a chronic activation of stress
response mechanisms, which in turns trigger a physiological wear-and-tear effect: allostatic load.
