De-Stres is a patented, specially produced milk protein hydrolysate, concentrating a specific peptide and demonstrating anxiolytic activity. This product is available from Biotics Research.
 

 
 

De-Stress can help with the following:
 
 
Lab Values  Elevated Cortisol Levels
 Forty-two healthy volunteers (all males) participated in a double-blind randomized designed study. One single dose of De-Stress hydrolysate was studied. One group received the De-Stress hydrolysate, the other group received the placebo. The products were administered under the supervision of the investigator at the clinical research center, with the actual time of ingestion documented in the individual case report forms.

Cortisol is a stress hormone released by the adrenal glands. Because it is a stress indicator, cortisol levels were measured. Blood cortisol remained stable in the control group, while decreasing significantly in the active group during the stress test (cold pressor test). ACTH is a normal product of the anterior pituitary and acts as the controller of the secretion of cortisol. ACTH levels are an indicator of stress. During the stress tests, blood ACTH levels increased in the control group but not the active group.

Mental

  Stress
 Forty-two healthy volunteers (all males) participated in a double-blind randomized designed study. One single dose of De-Stress hydrolysate was studied. One group received the De-Stress hydrolysate, the other group received the placebo. The products were administered under the supervision of the investigator at the clinical research center, with the actual time of ingestion documented in the individual case report forms.

Systolic blood pressure was significantly less in the active group vs. the placebo group during the Stroop test. Cortisol is a stress hormone released by the adrenal glands. Because it is a stress indicator, cortisol levels were measured. Blood cortisol remained stable in the control group, while decreasing significantly in the active group during the stress test (cold pressor test). ACTH is a normal product of the anterior pituitary and acts as the controller of the secretion of cortisol. ACTH levels are an indicator of stress. During the stress tests, blood ACTH levels increased in the control group but not the active group.

  Anxiety
 Twenty-four healthy volunteers (12 males, 12 females) were subjected to Psychometric tests to evaluate anxiety evolution in a moderate stress situation, with or without consumption of the De-Stress hydrolysate for 15 days. A comparative, randomized double-blind design involving 3 parallel groups was employed. Also included were tests for Systolic Blood Pressure, Diastolic Blood Pressure, heart rate, AUC (area under the curve), Cmax (max. value), Dmax (max. increase) and salivary cortisol levels. Following the saliva stress tests, volunteers with a high anxiety level as a stable disposition had a slower increase of their global anxiety-state score when they received the hydrolysate.
