In the last few years, we can see a real boom in the popularity of natural Adaptogens - today there are almost no people left who have not even heard of them.
Such an interest in phytotherapy is justified by many circumstances, mainly the skeptical attitude of people to conventional drug therapy of synthetic origin, and the desire to replace pharmacological medicine with natural remedies with a milder and more natural effect.
Some of the most well-known Adaptogens are "Siberian ginseng" (also called Eleutherococcus, “wild pepper”, “devil's bush”) and "Indian ginseng" (Ashwagandha, "winterberry"). Today we will look at what these two Adaptogens are, who is recommended to take them and whether they can be mixed.
What Are Adaptogens?
Natural Adaptogenshave been used for centuries by Tibetan, Chinese and Indian healers to improve well-being, replenish vitality, improve immunity, endurance and increase life expectancy. For example, they splendidly called ginseng "the root of life", or "a plant from a hundred diseases".
Supplements and remedies made from these natural plants help a person to adapt to stress and changes that we regularly face in everyday life. Adaptogens have an unusually wide range of pharmacological properties - they provide a stable sense of calm, improve mental abilities, concentration and increase body energy levels. These positive effects are achieved by "normalizing" or "regulating" the adrenal response to stress.
In addition, Adaptogens have strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects that protect your cells from damage from various chemical influences.
Ashwagandha: an effective soothing Adaptogen.
Ashwagandha has traditionally been used in India for more than 4,000 years. It is considered both a food and a tonic to improve energy, memory, and learning, increase libido and prevent premature aging.
Ashwagandha soothes and has an anti-inflammatory effect. It is used to improve sleep, reduce anxiety, improve memory, and reduce inflammation and oxidative stress (damage from inflammation). Ashwagandha strengthens the immune system, is used in the treatment of arthritis, and can be useful in the treatment of fertility problems.
Note: studies show that Ashwagandha with the right dosage is safe for most people. However, those who suffer from autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus erythematosus, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and type 1 diabetes should consult their doctor before taking it, as Ashwagandha supports the immune system and can worsen the patient's health.
Eleutherococcus: an assistant to all athletes and an amplifier of the body's capabilities.
“Siberian Ginseng” is one of the most studied Adaptogens to date. It is used to increase mental activity and performance, increase concentration, increase energy and endurance, reduce stress and fatigue, as well as to enhance immunity, and improve detoxification. It has anabolic properties, which means that it promotes muscle growth and prevents their destruction with age.
Attention: when taking Eleutherococcus, rare cases of insomnia have been reported. If you have insomnia, choose another Adaptogen or take it in the morning.
A versatile mix to reduce stress and “soften” sports loads.
Perhaps few people have heard about Ashwagandha and Eleutherococcus, but it is these substances that are extremely important for the health of our body. They help us adapt to various types of stress: from physical (cold, heat, physical exertion) to emotional.
Both of these substances belong to Adaptogens and perfectly complement each other – there is not a single recorded case of negative effects from simultaneous administration of Ashwagandha and Eleutherococcus.
Adaptogens tone up the body, affecting it on several levels. They contain strong antioxidants that protect cells from damage by free radicals, improve the functioning of the cardiovascular system and increase the supply of oxygen to tissues and increase the synthesis of proteins and other substances responsible for "damage repair" in the body.
As you can see, the combination of Ashwagandha with Eleutherococcus is ideal for both professional athletes and common people suffering from constant stress and anxiety.
