Adaptogen Herbs Were Discovered
In the 1950s, a renowned scientist
and researcher, Dr. Israel Brekhman, went on a mission. He wanted
to discover new formulas to promote health and well-being, so he
traveled to a remote jungle and mountainous area in Russia known
as the Primorye regions. There, this Soviet doctor discovered an
assortment of wild, untainted foliage known as adaptogen herbs.
He hoped these adaptogen herbs would help reduce the anxiety and stress that was overwhelming the people around him.
These thousands of untouched plants soon proved to have benefits
for all mankind. After much research, Dr. Brekhman concluded that
these adaptogen herbs could help a person cope with everyday stresses. Astronauts
used adaptogen herbs to restore their body’s natural balance,
while athletes used them to help with their energy and endurance.
There are various popular adaptogen herbs that are believed to have
beneficial effects on the body. They include:
