Effects of LAMININE on Stress Hormone Cortisol
This study was designed to ascertain the efficacy of Laminine supplement on cortisol levels. During the experiment, 28 subjects, 16 women and 12 men, between 36 and 83, took part in the study.
The salivary cortisol level content of each participant was measured before they took part in the study.
This figure is known as the “pre-Laminine usage level.” The salivary cortisol level was also measured every fifth day three times throughout the study when each participant’s intake amount was changed.
Cortisol “stress reduction” by 23.7%
Overall, study participants’ cortisol levels were reduced by an average of 23.7 percent, were 16 started on a higher intake of Laminine—four capsules, twice a day—and 12 began on one capsule twice per day.
Participants that initially started on a higher intake of Laminine saw their cortisol level reduced significantly over the first four days as compared to subjects that began the study with a lower usage amount.
However, at the end of the study, there was a small, although insignificant, the difference in favor of the high initial intake.
The total cortisol reduction by the end of the study was 27.3 percent in women and 19.2 percent in men.
While the results of this study are encouraging, additional tests with a larger sample size are needed to validate the findings.
