    Cortisol control

    Cortisol Control

    Here are some drugs that help you with Cortisol Control:

    Cytadren (aminoglutethimide) : This drug has the ability to reduce cortisol at higher doses (1000mg a day), and act as an AI at lower doses (250mg a day). The cortisol effect is shortlived if taken for a number of consecutive days. Can lower estrogen a lot, anbout 90%. The higher dose has a long list of sides. More effective as an AI.

    Mirtazapine :This is used to lower cortisol. Even though it may be effective in cortisol control, Johan has pointed out that it may cause some phycological side effects, like making you feel like a zombie. Here is a pubmed abstract for is effects on cortisol levels, amoung other things.http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/...1&dopt=Abstract

    Cytodyne (Phosphatidylserine) : This is also used to lower cortisol, but is only effective in lowering about 30%. There are other ingredients in Cytodyne than Phosphatidylserine. Phosphatidylserine is the only real proven ingredient to lower cortisol, or so ive gathered so far. Effective at 800mg a day of PS as an ingredient.

    Vitamin C: At doses of about 1.5 grams a day, can have a lowering effect on elevated cortisol, not to mention its other healthy effects.

    Re: Cortisol control

    Lets explain what is cortisol and how Vit C works to control cortisol levels.


    Cortisol
    Cortisol is a steroid hormone secreted by the adrenal glands in response to stress or when the level of cortisol in the blood is low. The body uses cortisol to increase blood sugar. Cortisol also aids in the metabolism of fat, protein and carbohydrates, and can decrease bone formation. It prevents the release of inflammatory substances, and is used medically to treat Addison's disease, rheumatoid arthritis and allergies.



    Current Research
    Elevated cortisol levels are a factor in suppressing the immune system, and research is being conducted to determine if vitamin C supplementation can boost immune system function by reducing cortisol levels. At the Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, researchers have studied the effect of vitamin C supplementation on human subjects subjected to exercise-heat stress. The authors state: "Prolonged physical exertion and environmental heat stress may elicit postexercise depression of immune cell function, increasing upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) susceptibility." They found that vitamin C was more effective than a placebo in reducing cortisol levels. A study in Germany measured the response of human subjects to stress testing -- public speaking and mental arithmetic -- using both vitamin C and a placebo. This study found that vitamin C supplementation decreased measures of stress and that the subjects' elevated cortisol levels recovered more quickly. In a study reported in the October 2001 "International Journal of Sports Medicine," marathoners who received vitamin C supplements showed decreased cortisol levels.
