The latest statement from Dr. O’Bryan is part of his ongoing commitment to disseminating cutting-edge research into bioavailable adaptogenic compounds and the role they play in stimulating the production of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factors (BDNF) and Nerve Growth Factors (NGF). These molecules are central to the body’s ability to fight inflammation and reduce oxidative stress.
Baicalin is a monomeric flavonoid compound derived from the root of the Scutellaria Baicalensis Georgi plant. This extract has been widely used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat an extensive range of disorders including hypertension, diabetes, hepatitis, respiratory infections, insomnia, and eye disease. Studies have shown that Baicalin promotes hippocampal neurogenesis to improve symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Dr. O’Bryan points to a Neuropsychopharmacology paper that demonstrates Baicalin’s ability to alter the expression of Glucocorticoid receptors and FKBP5 following exposure to chronic stress. By regulating the central nervous system and the production of the stress hormone cortisol, Baicalin shows promise as an effective herbal alternative to SSRIs. A study by Pharmaco Genetics Limited demonstrated Baicalin’s low toxicity and lack of side effects compared with standard anti-anxiety medications.
The campaign also explores Baicalin’s potential in treating sleep disorders and skin conditions as well as balancing blood glucose levels and reducing the inflammation that lies at the heart of chronic fatigue syndrome.
Dr. O’Bryan is a globally-renowned expert on autoimmune diseases and celiac sensitivity. His interest in functional and complementary medicine led to the formation of theDr.com – a leading resource for science-backed research into plant-based medicine and its ability to deliver positive health outcomes.
A spokesperson says, “Arresting the progression of lifestyle diseases and reversing many health hurdles and symptoms is an inside job – healing from the inside out, one cell at a time.”
