The Healing Power of Adaptogens
Adaptogens are becoming more and more popular nowadays as people become increasingly aware of their health benefits. However, it’s very important to pay attention to the quality of the adaptogens if you want the highest effectiveness!
Some people currently use the term adaptogen to describe any type of herb or nutrient that helps the body with its energy. To truly be an adaptogen, an herb must regulate stress response and put the body in a position to experience a greater level of health.
Calm Your Nervous System
An adaptogen must also directly impact your pituitary gland and immediately start to calm your nervous system. If this doesn’t happen, your body will not be able to regulate your stress response and allow your kidney adrenal energy to enter a phase allowing the absorption of energy.
This effect is the mark of a “true” adaptogen.
A true adaptogen also has the ability to regulate your HPA axis. When your nervous system starts to relax, your adrenals actually turn off the outpouring of adrenalin! Once this happens, your adrenals can return to a state of replenishment and start to absorb energy and build “Life Force.”
A good quality adaptogen can allow your adrenals to change their function by becoming a reservoir for storing energy.
Great Adaptogenic Formulas
A truly great formula will include herbs designed to strengthen “Jing.” This is a term used in Chinese herbology to describe an energetic system made up of your kidneys, adrenals, skeletal system, endocrine system, bone marrow, and brain. By taking Jing tonics, there is a nourishing effect on this entire system.
Rhodiola, reishi, ashwagandha, eleuthero, and schizandra are truly superior adaptogens you can always depend on to have a profound effect on the body and brain.
These five herbs can be extremely effective when they have been extracted properly, with a concentrate of all of the active plant constituents, as they have been in all of our formulas at HerbWorks.
Proper herbal potency is extremely important to have an immediate effect on the body and brain, and can truly allow your body to handle the stress that daily life has thrown its way!
