If you’ve read a health or lifestyle blog recently, you’ll have likely heard about adaptogens. They sound like something futuristic developed in Tony Stark’s lab a Marvel Comic, but they are actually compounds derived from plants that have been used in Chinese medicine for centuries and are known to improve the immune system and the body’s ability to handle stress.
Researchers have found adaptogens have a positive impact on the body such as neuroprotective elements, anti-fatigue properties, anti-depressive effects, and that they stimulate the central nervous system, Healthline reports.
Adaptogens promote the body’s ability to handle the physical impacts of stress by stabilising balance in the hypothalamic, pituitary and adrenal glands.
You, however, don’t need to go to a Chinese herbalist to get your hands on adaptogens. They are easily available if you crack open a bottle of Doctor V’s Siberian Rush, which is packed with adaptogens sourced from hand-picked herbs in Siberia, where they’ve been used for centuries.
By acting on your adrenal glands, adaptogens assist your body’s ability to manage stress. By reducing your body’s response to stress in your adrenal glands you’re also promoting strong growth of white blood cells that help fight off infections, colds and flu.
