We would summarize Super Adaptogen as a great formula that helps the body adapt to changes in ones environment. These changes can be emotional, shifts in temperature, physical stressors, immune challenges, or poor lifestyle choices. Super Adaptogen is a very broad reaching formula in large part due to its world class ingredient content of many of the worlds most acclaimed tonic herbs. This is a great formula if one is confused with which tonic formula to start their program with as it is a "shotgun approach" in that Super Adaptogen is beneficial in so many ways. Below is a write up from Dragon Herbs on the ingredients contained within Super Adaptogen:
Tibetan Rhodiola Root
Tibetan Rhodiola is an extraordinary herb. It is a rare herb that grows in one of the harshest environments in the world. In the Orient, it is called “Plateau Ginseng,” and the Tibetans considered Rhodiola to be a sacred herb. It has been used by the Tibetan people as a powerful adaptogenic vitalizer since the beginning of Tibetan civilization. Rhodiola has also been prized by the Chinese for over two thousand years ago. It is regarded as a life-prolonging, wisdom enhancing “superior herb.” However, the rarity of Tibetan Rhodiola has prevented it from becoming a well-known commodity outside of Asia until now. A relative known as Rhodiola rosea, from Russia, has become popular in popular herbalism because it can be cultivated and thus is much more available, but Tibetan Rhodiola is considered far superior in Asia. Tibetan Rhodiola is a superb herb for people who work very hard, either physically or mentally. Tibetan Rhodiola has been shown to improve endurance and mental capacity, including memory enhancement. It has been shown to be a superb tonic and energizer for those into physical fitness, and a superior tonic for those stuck behind a desk or at a computer terminal for long periods of time. Consumption of a small amount of Rhodiola extract significantly improves a person’s capacity to absorb and utilize oxygen. Tibetan Rhodiola is especially beneficial to those who live under stressful conditions. It has been shown that Tibetan Rhodiola reduces the body’s stress reactions, and thus relieves moderate mental stress as well. People stay focused and suffer far less from fatigue even under stress. It is the ideal herbal supplement for the modern world. It also supports immune functions.
Asian Panax Ginseng has been known for its ability to help people handle stress for thousands of years, and is now used by millions of people to help handle stress more effectively. Ginseng may be consumed on a regular basis so that when stress occurs, the body and mind are fully energized and ready. Asian Ginseng is a quintessential energizer, but also relieves common anxiety.
Gynostemma is a quintessential adaptogenic herb. Gynostemma contains over 100 saponins that contribute to the adaptability of any individual who consumes it. Gynostemma eases tension and builds energy. It has general, safe, inflammo-regulatory action throughout the body without causing any side-effects. It has no medical benefits for any medical conditions, but helps maintain and support immune balance.
Astragalus Root is one of the most powerful natural agents in the world at regulating the functions of the body. It is a fundamental Qi tonic and should be a part of any adaptogenic, anti-stress formula. In fact it is a quintessential double-directional herb, one that helps regulate the immune system. It is a superb adaptogen.
Reishi Mushroom is the perfect herb for these times. It is strengthening, protective and calming to the nerves. It is both a potent Qi tonic and the ultimate Shen tonic. It is the perfect anti-stress herb. It helps to center you. When you’re taking Reishi you feel adaptive and you feel protected. Super Adaptogen is made with genuine “log-grown” Duanwood Reishi fruiting bodies.
Goji provides the reserve energy necessary to handle just about any difficulty. It is said traditionally that constant consumption of Goji will beget a cheerful attitude, and there’s nothing like good cheer to overcome stress. Goji, like the other super-tonic adaptogens, helps make you strong, relaxed and resilient.
Eucommia is a superb Jing tonic, used to strengthen the back (especially the lower back), skeleton, and joints (especially the knees and ankles). Eucommia is believed to confer strength and flexibility to the ligaments and tendons. It is often used by martial artists, yoga practitioners, Qigong practitioners, and other athletes to strengthen the back, knees, and the entire body. Eucommia is widely used in China as a safe and effective sex tonic for men and women. It provides powerful and safe fundamental adaptive energy to the body.
He Shou Wu (Polygonum multiflorum)
Constant consumption of this famous "longevity herb," whose full Latin name is Polygonum multiflorum, is said in the Orient to help “return an aging person to youthfulness and to keep a young person young.” It is an unsurpassed Yin Jing tonic, as well as a major blood tonic. It is said to increase energy and to clean the blood. As an Jing tonic, it is believed to be a powerful sexual tonic when consumed regularly. He Shou Wu supports sperm production in men and supports fertility in women. It is used in almost all tonics that are believed in the Orient to nurture the hair and teeth. This herb has been consumed by almost every Taoist that has lived for the past five hundred years, and is fundamental to the practice of the Taoist inner arts.
Schizandra is a major adaptogenic herb. Schizandra helps keep you relaxed and alert and supports the nervous system. Schizandra is considered to be one of the premium mind tonics of herbalism. It is used to support concentration, memory and alertness. Yet, unlike caffeine-like stimulants, Schizandra does not produce nervousness. In fact, Schizandra is mildly “calming” while producing wakefulness and mental focus.
Steamed Rehmannia Root
Steamed Rehmannia is said to be the “Kidney’s own food." It is a Kidney tonic found in many formulations for rejuvenation and longevity. It is also considered a premium blood tonic and is said to benefit sexual functions in men and women. Steamed Rehmannia is said to be warm in nature.
Polygonatum sibericum Root
Polygonatum Root is a Qi and Yin Jing tonic that is said to have a specific benefit on the brain. It is restorative to mental vitality, especially when the mind has become fatigued from work. It is often used in Shen and Jing tonics to nourish the brain and support the mind. This herb has been very popular among Taoists and all Qigong practitioners because of its supportive effect on the brain.
White Atractylodes Root
