Stress and fatigue! Most people consume sugar and caffeine to fight back. But the truth is these are not long lasting solutions and both turn our day into a roller coaster with ups and downs. Well, there is a better way to meet the challenge – learn more about the adaptogenic herbs!
 
Adaptogens are a part of a unique group of herbs with lots of useful properties which help us to improve our overall health and to cope with stress and fatigue in a natural and safe way. The name “adaptogens” comes from their ability to adapt their functions depending on the specific needs of the body:
 
  • They improve the body’s resistance towards all kinds of external factors
  • They balance the bodily functions in various conditions
  • They are completely natural and safe with no side effects
 
In contrast to modern medicines the adaptogens have been used in Chinese and in Indian ayurvedic medicine for ages. They are the preferred alternative source for treatment and health support.
 
Adaptogens work as thermostats. When a thermostat registers a rather high temperature in the room it decreases it, and when the temperature is too low – it increases it. Adaptogens work in a similar way – they may calm the body or they may increase the energy levels without the use of other stimulants. Adaptogens assist for achieving a balance in the body and support the adrenal gland’s function by decreasing the negative effects that stress has over the organism.
 
Adaptogens are easy to integrate in all diet plans as they are not toxic and may easily be found in most health food stores. They are available in many different forms: as capsules, teas, dried herbs. As with most of the natural products, adaptogens must be taken longer than drugs in order the positive effects to become obvious, but in contrast to other products they are long lasting and have no side effects.
 
Ginseng is one of the most famous adaptogens and one of the most medicinal plants in the world. Ginseng restores and supports the immune system, slows down the ageing process and promotes the development and growth of cells. The plant has a powerful energizing effect; it improves the memory and mental focus and increases physical endurance.
