What Are Adaptogens?

herbs_banner.jpg

Adaptogen, the term was coined by Soviet toxicologist N. V. Lazarev in 1947 to describe a substance that meets these 3 conditions:  
(1)non-toxic, must not damage the normal function of the human body. 
(2)decrease our sensitivity to outside stress, keeping us in calm 
(3)non-specific resistance to adverse influences like stress, environmental pollution, climate change and radiation.

Generally speaking, it is a nontoxic substance and especially a plant extract that is held to increase the body's ability to resist the damaging effects of stress and promote or restore normal physiological functioning. On top of that, in 1998, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) defined Adaptogen is a metabolic regulator that has been shown to contribute to improve environmental adaptability and to prevent external stimuli. There are dozens of plants, growing in some of the world’s harshest environments, that fall under the adaptogen category, Rhodiola Rosea and Ginseng is one of the most well-known adaptogenic herbs.


What Are They Supposed To Do?

Stress is a feeling of emotional or physical tension. When the body feels pressure, the “stress hormone” cortisol is released to resist external stress and help you balance the hormones. Once a perceived threat has passed, hormone levels return to normal. However, if the stress lasts for a long time, it can lead to elevated cortisol levels, which may damage your health. According to research, there are relative reactions in the body against chronic stress, including anxiety, depression, digestive problems, headache, sleep problems, weight gain, memory and attention deficits, etc.

Back to 19th century, there is a non-mainstream medical treatment, Naturopathic Medicine or naturopathy. Naturopathy is a form of alternative medicine that employs an array of pseudoscientific practices branded as natural, non-invasive, or promoting self-healing. In the 21st century, Dr Ben Tabachnik bringing with him decades of adaptogenic research said:” When our body is subjected to stress, adaptogens help the adrenal glands mount an immediate hormonal response by manufacturing and releasing more stress hormones.” In short, adaptogens are a group of herbs and some mushrooms that support our body’s natural ability to deal with stress with their unique ability to “adapt” their function according to the specific needs of our body.
