As adults age, growth hormone secretion from the anterior pituitary gland declines. Decreased growth hormone seems to result in part from levels of somatostatin that increase with aging. Somatostatin produced by the hypothalamus inhibits the release of growth hormone from the anterior pituitary. Too much somatostatin results in extreme reduction in endocrine hormones, leading to raised blood glucose levels--diabetes. As somatostatin inhibits many functions of the gastrointestinal tract, its overproduction may also result in the formation of gallstones, intolerance to fats or diarrhea. It appears that human growth hormone can increase muscle mass and reduce the amount of body fat in healthy older adults.
"Jyotishmati is a treasured medicinal herb that is revered for its effects on the brain and has been used for centuries in Ayurveda for sharpening the memory and improving concentration and cognitive function " https://alzres.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/alzrt125
"High concentrations of blood glucocorticoid are maintained in patients with depression due to the dysfunction of this feedback mechanism (Johnson et al., 2006). High glucocorticoid levels cause pathological damage to the hippocampal neurons both in vitro and in vivo (Li et al., 2007; Murray et al., 2008) and can induce depression-like behavior in animals (Johnson et al., 2006; Murray et al., 2008). Our results demonstrated that celastrus seed oil significantly reduced the plasma corticosterone levels compared to the control group, so the antidepressant-like action shown by the oil may be due to the reduction of plasma corticosterone levels."
Astragulus (Milk Vetch)
Ancient healers haveused this plant to treat a broad range of ailments, according to a February 2003 paper in “Alternative Medicine Review.” Astragulus contains a large amount of flavonoids. An investigation presented in the January 2003 issue of “Archives of Pharmacal Research” looked at the impact of these substances on growth hormone production. The researchers exposed isolated pituitary gland cells — taken from healthy rats — to either formononetin or saline. Astragulus increased growth hormone relative to controls. The extracts did not cause toxicity.
A paper supplied in the September 2004 issue of the “Journal of Ethnopharmacology” examined the effect of Lodhra on the pituitary bodily hormones of adolescent rats. The supplement improved follicle-stimulating bodily hormone and luteinizing hormone. This study showed that Lodhra (Symplocos racemos) helps improve fertility. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0378874104002223
Epimedium "Some herbs nourish the HPA axis and promotes adrenal, thyroid and reproductive function. (HPG) axis is activated, leading to increases in luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and sex steroids (testosterone and estradiol) levels. The HPG axis, which regulates gonadal steroid production, is a multiple level hormonal system involving brain and pituitary with feed forward and feedback elements.

"Our previous studies demonstrated that the epimedium herb, when simultaneously used with GCs, counteracted suppressive effects of GCs on the HPA axis without adverse influence on the therapeutic action of GCs. Here, total flavones were extracted from the epimedium flavonoids (EFs) and then used to investigate whether EFs provide protective effects on the HPA axis. We found that GCs induced a significant decrease in body weight gain, adrenal gland weight gain, and plasma adrenocorticotropin (ACTH) and corticosterone levels. After treatment with EFs, body weight gain, adrenal gland weight gain, and plasma corticosterone level were significantly restored, whilst plasma ACTH level was partially elevated. EFs were also shown to promote cell proliferation in the outer layer of adrenal cortex and to enhance the migration of newly divided cells toward the inner layer." https://www.hindawi.com/journals/ecam/2013/938425/
Gokshura "After detailed discussion on observations made and results achieved, this present study shows significant remission in the signs and symptoms of Kshina Shukra, vis-à-vis oligozoospermia, corroborated with definite improvement in the total sperm count. In toto, from this study it can be concluded that the Alternate Hypothesis of this study is accepted, that is, Gokshura is effective in the management of Kshina Shukra, with lifestyle modification. Gokshura Granules have shown superior results in the management of Kshina Shukra, as compared to placebo granules."
When this energy centre is balanced it may be experienced as:
Calm clear intuitive knowingness
A sense when things work and when they don’t
Knowing in advance
Sensitivity to the surroundings
Living in an expanded state of consciousness
An ability to listen within and receiving an answer
An ability to live beyond immediate desires
Gaining access to visual awareness
Living in resonance with what is happening at the cosmic level (bigger picture)
The capacity to unconsciously process great amounts of subtle information
An ability to access other planes of reality
An ability to look at life as fields of energy, not solid objects
Creatively able to visualise onto the mental screen
Experiencing states beyond time and space
Realising limitless realms (infinity)
Realising that all fits together, is divine cosmic perfection
When this energy centre is imbalanced/blocked, this may be experienced as:
Feeling stuck in the rational mind
Being “the intellectual” only
Emotionally afraid, helpless, cold, confused, paranoid, worrying
Mentally doubtful, a need to figure things out, a need for physical proof, trapped in fantasies
Physically not present to the body, not truly enjoying the physical body
One may come across as calculated, rigid, controlling and manipulative
Ability to trust is not there, not trusting self, nor others
This often leads to avoidance of intimacy, an inability to relax and let go, or to go with the flow, everything has to be planned and calculated. A sense of cynicism of “I believe it when I see it”.
The divine (or God) is just a concept, not an experience.
The pituitary gland
Is shaped like a bean and lies at the centre of the head, behind the nose.
Relays messages from the hypothalamus to all the endocrine glands (affecting the nervous system) of the body. Is considered the master gland of the body. It controls adrenal response (to stress) and helps to regulate the body’s temperature. It releases endorphins, those amazing feel-good hormones.
A malfunctioning pituitary gland can also affect fluid retention, menstrual conditions, breast feeding problems and conception and an over-active or under-active adrenal response.
Therefore a healthy pituitary gland is of utmost importance to our well being. Yoga asanas, breathing, relaxation and meditation all help to keep the pituitary gland healthy. Some flowing asanas such as Salute to the Sun stimulate the circulatory system which brings fresh nutrients to the pituitary tissue. Inversions also bathe the brain with fresh blood supply and benefit the pituitary gland and its functions. Asanas not only bring fresh blood supply but certain poses which involve bending forward are very soothing for the nerves and thus the pituitary gland.
One practice for pituitary health is Brahmari (Humming Bee) Breathing. We sit comfortably, relax and close the eyes and hum like a bee on the long outward breath. As we hum we will notice vibration in the bones of our head. If the hum is low we feel it more in the jaw whereas a higher hum brings the vibration up into the cheek bones and forehead. This higher humming is very beneficial for the pituitary gland.}
The pituitary gland plays an essential job in controlling your growth, sexuality and fertility. It makes and introduces a comprehensive assortment of bodily hormones that communicate signals from your mind to your body.
