Amazing Adaptogen Plants help body adapt to stress

3611L It all begins with Adaptogens. These extraordinary plants draw their unique characteristics from their harsh surroundings. They were first discovered in Siberia in 1908 where a comet had hit the earth, super-heating the air and exploding with such force that entire forests were leveled. This tremendous explosion completely sterilized this vast region, preventing anything from growing there.

Even without a comet explosion, Siberia is a harsh environment for vegetation. Only the most robust plants grow there, and only under the best of circumstances. After the comet explosion sterilized the soil, years went by before plant life once again returned. The only ones that could regenerate  &      flourish were those that could adapt to stressful conditions. Then it was discovered that the people who ate this vegetation as part of their diet showed an incredible resilience to their harsh, formidable environment.

Studies of these plants continued for decades. Dr. Nicolai Lazarev “decoded” the ingredients within these plants that gave “stress resistance” to people who ate them. It is said that he tested, decoded and classifi ed more than 4,000 adaptogenic plants from around the world, using a simple three-point standard.

For a plant to be classified as adaptogenic, it must:

• Be non-toxic in the body

• Increase the body’s resistance to physical, chemical or biological stress

• Normalize the body’s physiology.

For example, if stress causes someone to have too much acid in their stomach, an adaptogen must help the body reduce it. Conversely, if someone has too little acid, that same adaptogen must help the body increase it. The same is true for blood pressure: bring it down if it’s too high, bring it up if it’s too low. Amazing adaptogens offer outstanding health benefits!

Of course, Siberia is not the only harsh environment on earth. Other extreme locations also produce plants with adaptogenic qualities. As I learned more and more about these astonishing plants, I began to envision a way to bring them all together − in one single product. Knowing full well about the disastrous effects inflicted upon the human body from long-term stress, I was driven to find the right formula to help address these stressors.

There are only 10 known adaptogens. But there are many thousands of plants that can benefit stressed out people even though they aren’t adaptogenic. Antioxidants help the bodyvstay healthy, fight free radical damage and boostyour immune system. Trivita’s Adaptogen 10 Plus contains OptiBerry, a proprietary blend of antioxidants extracted from berries and other prime sources of antioxidants.

When a person is under chronic stress, switches in the brain turn on the systems needed to help the body cope, and turn off the systems considered “unnecessary.” One of the first systems turned off by stress is digestion.This action creates a big problem. It means that even though we may have an exceptional remedy to help deal with both the direct and indirect effects of stress, it can’t get into the body because the digestion switch is turned off. So I overcame it by borrowing a page from the playbook of Integrative Medicine.

Integrative Medicine has found that Aloe Vera can help relax a tense digestive system. This helps nutrients and medications to be absorbed, even when the body is under extreme stress. There it was – the answer to our digestion roadblock. So we added Aloe Vera to our adaptogen/ antioxidant blend, and “voila,” perfect harmony!
If you are feeling the effects of stress (or if you want to help prevent them in the first place), then trust the science that delivers the true stress protection of adaptogens, and super fruit antioxidants and Aloe Vera: TriVita’s Adaptogen 10 Plus.
