Minerals and Botanicals for Acute Stress


Brief description of study

The objective of this acute intervention study is to examine the potential of minerals combined with botanicals to demonstrate unique and synergistic effects on oscillatory brain activity, cognitive performance, and stress reduction (endocrine, sympathetic, and subjective parameters) under conditions of acute stress in moderately stressed individuals

Detailed Study Description

Botanicals in isolation or combined, will be administered with a mineral and vitamin complex to moderately stressed, healthy adults in a parallel groups fashion in this randomised placebo controlled trial. Oscillatory brain activity (EEG) during rest and performance on cognitive tasks of attention will be examined after treatment intake under conditions of acute laboratory stress. The effects of treatments on stress responses (cardiovascular, subjective and cortisol responses) will also be assessed.

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT03262376
