In our modern world, most people rarely get the opportunity to relax and “unwind”. As a result, they are often plagued by stress-related health problems. Chronic stress can contribute to problems like fatigue, anxiety, nervous tension, muscle pain, stiffness, and depression. Over time, it can contribute to digestive weakness, immune weakness, chronic inflammation, restless and disturbed sleep, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and weight gain.
Fortunately, there are ways to help reduce your stress levels while improving your overall health. An effective means of stress reduction is now available in the form of adaptogenic herbs. “Adaptogen” is a word coined by Russian scientists to describe the effects of eleuthero root (also known as Siberian ginseng). Scientists in Russia discovered that eleuthero root improved athletic performance, enhanced energy and immune function, and even reduced the number of mistakes made by clerical and office workers. They found the plant accomplished these feats by reducing the output of stress hormones and improving the body’s ability to cope with physical and emotional stress. They even learned that eleuthero root helped prevent Soviet cosmonauts from getting space sickness due to weightlessness, a fact later shared with American astronauts.
Since the benefits of eleuthero root were discovered, other herbs around the world have also been found to possess adaptogenic effects. AdpataMax combines several of these herbs into one formula. It also contains herbs that enhance circulation, glandular function, and the immune system. AdaptaMax also has antioxidant and blood sugar regulating properties.
AdaptaMax can be taken by anyone who desires to improve physical endurance, immune function and the ability to cope with the stresses they face in life. It contains eleuthero root and twelve other adaptogenic and tonifying herbs, as follows:
