Adaptogenic Herbs

Many of you hear me yammering on about adaptogens. Here is a glimpse of the ingredients in just one of our products…now you know!

Adaptogens

🌱Ashwagandha: An herb similar to Indian Ginseng (Winter Cherry) chosen to combat physical stress

🌱Schizandra: A Chinese herb used for chronic fatigue, normalizing blood sugar, blood pressure and other bodily functions, while increasing the body’s resistance to disease

🌱Tribulus Terrestris: Known as Puncture Vine, has a detoxifying effect on the liver and improves the blood supply to muscles and the brain, while increasing endurance. Athletes use this as a safe and natural alternative to steroids. It helps hormonal and libido problems in men and women.

🌱Siberian Golden Root: An herb from the mountains of Eastern Siberia that helps you recover from mental and physical workloads. It reduces exhaustion and improves memory and brain activity. As an anti-fatigue, anti-depression herb, it is known to improve athletic and sexual performance.

🌱Siberian Ginseng: The main adaptogen responsible for athletic recovery, while increasing endurance and lean muscle. It is used to improve energy levels, protect the immune system, and increase mental sharpness. Millions take it daily.

🌱Siberian Rhododendron Caucasicum (S.R.C.): A unique non-toxic species of Rhododendron found only in the Caucasian Mountains of Russia at elevations of 10,000 to 13,000 feet. In the Republic of Georgia, there are records of 23,000 Georgians over the age of 100; based on a population of only 3.2 million people. This rhododendron is the secret to their longevity. Studies show that S.R.C. improves heart health, blood pressure and cholesterol, arthritis, depression, gout, increases blood supply to the muscles and brain, and is highly anti-bacterial. It is also being used to reduce fat and is a natural and selective fat blocker. What a list!

🌱Nepali Shilajit: Translates as “Destroyer of Weakness and the Builder of Strength.” Shilajit is harvested off the sides of the cliffs in the Himalayas. Its list of health benefits is as long as Siberian Rhododendron Caucasicum, above. It is high in trace minerals and supports longevity in ways too many to list here.

🌱Maca Extract: Maca is a root vegetable grown high in the Andes; known as the Incan Superfood. Maca is high in amino acids which play a role in sexual function; making it known for its sexual performance properties, along with enhancing fertility, memory and energy.

🌱Wolfberry: This Asian herb is known for treating diabetes, repairing damaged liver cells, kidney function, and improving vision. It contains 500% more vitamin C than oranges, more beta-carotene than carrots, over 19 amino acids and 21 trace minerals, along with B1, B2, B6, and vitamin E. The extraction process is vey important because most of the health benefits are in the berry’s skin. Wolfberry has been used for centuries for its anti-aging benefits.

Important Nutrients That Improve Your Health

🌱Bamboo Extract: The stem is used as the highest known source of natural silica; approximately 70% silica. It strengthens the skeletal system, much the same way it does for the mammals that exist on it. It improves digestion and aids the cardiovascular system and elasticity of the arteries. When our level of silica declines, we see hair loss, bone loss, and premature aging of the skin. It is an essential daily supplement.

🌱Aphrodisiac Herbs: Along with Shilajit, Maca extract, Siberian Golden Root, Schizandra extract, Ashwagandha, are added Velvet Bean and Ginger Extract. Velvet Bean is popular in sports nutrition with its ability to increase testosterone and stimulate growth hormone. We know Ginger aids in digestion, nausea, and sexual dysfunction.

🌱Fulvic Acid: Fulvic Acid is a molecule that carries nutrients into the body. It neutralizes free radicals and heavy metals, and recharges the cells: becoming a natural electrolyte. It is important in helping the body absorb nutrients, and returning the cells to a normal state. Today’s spotlight product contains 23% Fulvic Acid coming from the Nepali Shilajit.

🌱MSM (methylsulfonylmethane): You may be familiar with MSM as an essential nutrient in stimulating the production of collagen and protecting your joints. It is thought to be a necessary building block for proteins. Since sulfur levels are lower in arthritic joints than healthy joints, MSM may help in getting sulfur to joints that are low. No one is exactly sure how it works, just that it does. Other Included Extracts and Nutrients:
