Adaptogens have long been associated with increasing energy, enhancing stamina, and reducing fatigue. They even encourage physical work capacity and mental performance. Adaptogens are often referred to as tonics, and they have far reaching effects on overall physiological health, supporting immune, cardiovascular, and endocrine functions. At the same time, they help the body to adapt to and cope with stress, primarily by supporting the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. I am finding a really good consumer response to Adapten-All by OrthoMolecular This supplementl has Ashwagandha in it. Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb, It has an extensive, 4,000-year history of traditional use and is one of the most revered and widely used Ayurvedic herbs. Ashwagandha is believed to increase energy and overall health and longevity. It also has an overall ability to promote physical and mental health.
