Chronic Fatigue- (adrenal burnout, can’t get out of bed in the morning)
What is an Adaptogen?
An adaptogen is a phytonutrient that has the amazing ability to help normalize or “adapt” the body’s physiologic functions to a higher rate of functioning, regardless of the person’s current health status (i.e. whether you are an athlete or chronically ill). Adaptogens are able to take you from where you are, so to speak, and then help move you to the next level. Taking them over time can create higher and higher states of well being. This action is thought to be mediated via the hypothalmic-pituitary-adrenal axis, the pathway linked to longevity. Now you can see why adaptogenic herbs were so valued in the past – many kings and privileged royalty considered regular consumption of adaptogenic herbs as the key to great vitality and a long, healthy life – indeed, conferring the ability to enter the “Quantum Energy Zone.”
