Cortisol Breaks Down Muscle Tissue:

Cortisol also breaks down muscle tissue when cortisol levels are too high. This is due to cortisol's catabolic effects, which mean it is responsible for breaking down the body’s stored energy reserves in order to maintain normal bodily functions and produce cortisol.

This process can be detrimental if cortisol remains elevated for long periods of time, as cortisol can break down muscle mass instead of fat.
