A Double Blind, Placebo Controlled, Clinical Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of StressCare Capsules
Stress is a multifactorial stimulus that elicits responses at emotional, cognitive, behavioral and also at physiological levels. Thus the approach to manage stress should also be multifactorial. Among the herbal approaches, traditionally polyherbal formulations are used in Indian medicine. Present study on StressCare capsules was a Double Blind, Placebo Controlled, Clinical Study to evaluate its Efficacy and Safety in 100 volunteers presenting with clinical symptoms of stress and irritability. On entry, a detailed medical history was obtained to ascertain the presence of anxiousness followed by complete physical and psychological examination. All the people were randomly divided into StressCare and placebo groups, and people from both the groups received either StressCare or placebo for a period of 8 weeks, in a dose of 2 capsules twice daily, orally. Those involved in the study were evaluated clinically on entry at 4 weeks and at end of 8 weeks. All the subjects were clinically evaluated at regular intervals and statistical analysis was performed between the groups. Study results indicate that StressCare is safe and effective in the management of mild occasional stress and irritability as compared to placebo.
