Adaptogens work at the cellular level to improve the function and vitality of every cell in the body, thereby increasing the health of the entire organism. By definition, adaptogens are natural substances that: Are entirely safe and have no negative side effects. Stimulate the body’s own self-regulation process and they increase the body’s non-specific resistance (ability to cope with external and internal stress). Normalize functions of the bodily systems, improving a wide variety of conditions and aggravating none. For centuries adaptogens have been used to combat stress, mental and physical fatigue, and to minimize tissue damage resulting from free-radicals that our bodies are exposed to on a daily basis. Adaptogens are noted for having the broadest spectrum healing properties. They are protective and increase an individual’s resistance to chemical, physical and biological stresses. A FEW OF THE MAIN EFFECTS OF ADAPTOGENS INCLUDE: Antioxidant effects that inhibit free radicals from adversely affecting cell membranes Ability to facilitate formation of proteins Ability to help the body re-build damaged muscle tissue Increased endurance Increased availability of energy throughout the day Reduction of stress feelings Deep & restful sleep Greater mental alertness Significantly elevate recovery process after physical activity and illness BRIEF HISTORY OF ADAPTOGENS In 1947, the top scientist, Dr. N.V. Lazarev and his team of Russian scientists discovered the first adaptogen. The term “adaptogen” was created to classify these specific substances or herbs that helped to increase health and the body’s natural resistance. Further research was conducted over the next 45 years by one of Lazarev’s students, Dr. Israel Brekhman. Brekhman recognized that these rare botanical herbs with adaptogenic characteristics lived through the ice ages by flourishing and adapting in even the most severe living conditions. Based on this principle, Brekhman believed that these herbs might possess qualities that could help our bodies adapt to the changes and stresses of modern day life. With a team of 1200 biologists and physicians, Dr. Brekhman investigated and analyzed adaptogens and paved the way for over 3000 different types of experimental studies and clinical trials. These studies, primarily performed in Germany and the former Soviet Union, revealed the extraordinary immunity-building and stress-protective capacity of adaptogens. Their research showed that adaptogens are non-toxic to cells, aid cells to a healthy state, help the body adapt to stress and improve physical performance.
