Eleuthero Eleutherococcus senticosis root

This herb normalizes blood pressure and reduces fatigue, stress and depression. Eleuthero is a well researched herb for balancing endocrine activity, promoting strength and energy and enhancing work or athletic performance. It acts on the adrenal glands to normalize stress hormone (cortisol) levels thereby smoothing out the peaks and valleys of energy that characterize chronic stress.

Ashwagandha Withania somnifera fresh root

The root of this plant is a calming adaptogen that enhances endocrine function especially helping to regulate the adrenal glands and stimulate the thyroid, making it useful in hypothyroidism. Ashwagandha also has nervine properties making it effective for anxiety, fatigue, cloudy thinking, stress induced insomnia and nervous exhaustion. It is rich in iron and can be used for iron-deficient anemia. In Ayurvedic medicine it is used for prolonging life, stimulating the mind and enhancing vigor and sexual function.

Holy Basil Ocimum sanctum fresh leaf and flower

Holy Basil is sacred to the Hindu God Vishnu and is used in morning prayers to insure personal health, spirtual purity and family well being. It helps reduce the negative effects of stress by lowering cortisol production in the adrenals and helps to maintain normal blood sugar levels. This sweet warm herb is also used to enhance cerebral circulation and promotes focused clarity. The daily use of Holy Basil is believed to help maintain the balance of the chakras of the body and is capable of bringing on goodness, virtue and joy in humans.

Schisandra Schisandrae chinensisfresh berries

Acting as an adaptogen, Schisandra effects the nervous, immune and endocrine systems. It is a mild central nervous system stimulant that enhances reflexes, work performance and mental activity. At the same time it is calming and helps relieve anxiety and stress induced asthma palpatations. The berries enhance the endocrine system and non-specific immune system function which is most affected by stress and is inhibited by chronic anxiety, anger, depression, and fear. Studies have found Schisandra to have an amphoteric effect on blood pressure, lowering elevated blood pressure and raising low blood pressure.

Bacopa Bacopa monnieri fresh plant

Bacopa is the primary botanical used since the 6th century to support mental acuity. Modern research has shown that it exhibits an antioxidant effect directly on memory centers of the brain and can reduce the effects of stress on the brain. It is used to promote memory and focus, relieve anxiety and slow progression of Alzheimer's disease. It is also used for children and adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and effective for people recovering from head trauma injuries.

This sweet root is an effective adaptogen, anti-inflammatory and hepatoprotective agent. It is effective for adrenal insufficiency with symptoms of fatigue, tiredness upon waking, elevated cortisol and blood sugar levels and frequent colds. It has been used for thousands of years in Chinese medicine to harmonize herbal formulas.
