Anderson—Stress-induced Adrenal Dysfunction Stress has become the leading health problem in Western society.1 In spite of work by Hans Selye, considered the father of stress research, in the 1930s to investigate and define the General Adaptation Syndrome (GAS, which is the manifestation of stress in the whole body, as developed over time),2 we are more ravaged by the consequences of stress today than at any time in previous history. It is estimated that 75% to 90% of visits to primary care… Expand

Adrenal fatigue is a common diagnosis amongst alternative and complementary medicine practitioners but its diagnostic criteria, aetiology, scientific rationale and treatment methods are not wellExpand
Efficacy of Ocimum sanctum for relieving stress: a preclinical study.
TLDR
Ocimum sanctum possess significant antistress activity but the magnitude and efficacy for relieving stress is less, when compare to standard anxiolytic agent, i.e. Alprazolam. Expand
Efficacy of an Extract of Ocimum tenuiflorum (OciBest) in the Management of General Stress: A Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study
TLDR
OciBest was found to be effective and well tolerated by all the patients over the six weeks of study period and showed significant reduction in symptom scores as compared to placebo group. Expand
Nutritional and antinutritional values of leaves and stems of Ocimumtenuiflorum L.
TLDR
The amount and nutritional content of the leaves and stem of O. tenuiflorum proved that this plant a good source to improve the authors' body health system. Expand

TLDR
The proposed HPTLC method will be useful to quantify the therapeutic dose of glycyrrhizin in herbal formulations as well as in bulk drug. Expand

Fish oil prevents the adrenal activation elicited by mental stress in healthy men.
TLDR
After 3 weeks of a diet supplemented with n-3 fatty acids, the stimulation by mental stress of plasma epinephrine, cortisol, energy expenditure, and plasma non esterified fatty acids concentrations were all significantly blunted. Expand
Stress and active oxygen species--effect of alpha-tocopherol on stress response.
TLDR
It is found that stress increases the drug metabolic potential of the liver (total P450, CYP2E1, or CYP3A1 activity) and administration of alpha-toc, in combination with stress, further increases erythro mycin N-demethylation compared to stress control, while 4-nitrophenol hydroxylation is not affected significantly.

Stress and Active Oxygen Species – Effect of α‐Tocopherol on Stress Response
Stress is implicated in the pathogenesis of numerous disorders such as cardiovascular diseases or neurodegeneration. The extensive overlap between diseases attributed to stress and oxidative damageExpand
When not enough is too much: the role of insufficient glucocorticoid signaling in the pathophysiology of stress-related disorders.
TLDR
Neuroendocrine data provide evidence of insufficient glucocorticoid signaling in stress-related neuropsychiatric disorders, including posttraumatic stress disorder and major depression, which are associated with immune system activation/inflammation, high SNS tone, and CRH hypersecretion. Expand
Reduction of rise in blood pressure and cortisol release during stress by Ginkgo biloba extract (EGb 761) in healthy volunteers.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that EGb 761 has an inhibitory action on blood pressure and it may influence cortisol release in response to some stress stimuli and the performance in a short memory test with higher scores achieved by women remained unaffected by EGB 761 treatment. Expand
The concepts of stress and stress system disorders. Overview of physical and behavioral homeostasis.
TLDR
The notion of a stress system as the effector of the stress syndrome is suggested, and its physiologic and pathophysiologic manifestations are described, to allow generation and testing of new hypotheses on the pathophysiology and diagnosis of, and therapy for, a variety of human illnesses. Expand
Anti-stress effects of Ginkgo biloba and Panax ginseng: a comparative study.
TLDR
G. biloba is more effective in AS, whereas for CS, P. ginseng will be a better option, and these extracts possess significant anti-stress properties and can be used for the treatment of stress-induced disorders. Expand
Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis response and recovery from high-intensity exercise in women: effects of aging and fitness.
TLDR
The results suggest that aging is associated with changes in the dynamic function of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and that these changes are attenuated by aerobic fitness. Expand
Adrenocortical Response to Ovine Corticotropin-Releasing Hormone in Young Men: Cortisol Measurement in Matched Samples of Saliva and Plasma
TLDR
The findings support the earlier studies and substantiate the efficacy of using salivary free cortisol measurement for assessment of dynamic function of pituitary-adrenal axis in healthy young men and its application in individuals such as IDUs and HIV-infected individuals who may have difficulty in donating multiple blood samples. Expand
[Studies on the glucocorticoid control of zinc metabolism].
TLDR
It could be shown that under ACTH stress the reaction of cortisol release is physiological, whereas the zinc level in serum decreases significantly, and it can be said that the zinc metabolism probably depends on glucocorticoidal controls. Expand
