To determine the effect of the Laminine dietary supplement on the level of cortisol in the body, studies were carried out, the results of which were published in the Physicians Desk Reference. The study was conducted on a group of 28 patients, including 16 women and 12 men, aged 36 to 83 years. How does Laminine affect the level of cortisol?
The research began with determining the level of cortisol in saliva in each participant. The level of cortisol tested was determined as a reference level, individual for each participant of the study. Salivary cortisol levels were also measured three times a day, every fifth day of the study, when the amount of dietary supplement taken by the patient was changed.
The average reduction in cortisol levels in all study participants was almost 24%. 16 people started the study with a larger dose of Laminine, four capsules twice a day. 12 people started the test with a lower dose of Laminine, one capsule twice a day. For participants who started with a higher dose of Laminine, during the first four days the level of cortisol in saliva decreased significantly compared to patients who started the study from the lower dose. However, at the end of the study, the difference in favor of the higher dose group was offset.
At the end of the study, the total reduction in cortisol levels was 27% in women and 19% in men.
Although the results of these studies may seem encouraging, additional tests are needed to verify them, which will include a larger group of people.
