Adaptogens: Herbs for Strength, Stamina, and Stress Relief
The idea of using tonic remedies to restore balance and health in a person is an ancient idea. The word and concept of an “adaptogen” is a relatively new way of describing a type of remedy commonly found in traditional Chinese (qi and kidney yang tonics), Tibetan, Ayurvedic (Rasayanas), and Native American medicine. The actual word ‘adaptogen’ was first used by a Soviet scientist, Dr. Nikolai Lazarev, who under grants from the military, was researching substances which produced a “state of nonspecific resistance” (SNIR). The idea was to find ways to enhance the productivity and performance of soldiers, athletes, and workers without using dangerous stimulants. Much of the early research into adaptogens was done by Dr. I.I. Brekhman who, in the late 1950’s, studied Panax ginseng. Looking for a less expensive and more available substitute, he changed his focus to a native Russian shrub, Eleutherococcus senticosis. His first monograph of this now popular herb (Eleuthero or Siberian Ginseng) was published in 1960.
Why Sun Horse?
Consider this: The American Academy of Family Physicians estimates that approximately 2/3 of all office visits are for stress-related complaints, yet stress itself is not an illness! It is simply a fact of life. In the 21st century, the stressors have changed but human physiology has remained the same. Native cultures have traditionally used adaptogenic herbs to prevent imbalances that can result from stress, regardless of the source, and therefore prevent or minimize disease and enable them to adapt to their unique environmental circumstances. Sun Horse is the result of 8 years of observation and research on the world’s most naturally vibrant and amazing cultures from 3 continents and vastly different environments, yet all sharing one essential commonality!
Mother Nature’s Pharmacy
Virtually all traditional societies use adaptogenic botanicals in their daily diet! These people have all adapted to their unique environments and actually thrive in conditions that would challenge virtually any outsider.
True, all of these cultures are facing serious threats from factors related to encroachment and exploitation and destruction of the natural world by modern society. Nevertheless, these people have given us the inspiration to help carry us toward a healthier, happier more connected life! As modern people, we may not need to run 75 miles in a day or be capable of hard physical exertion at above 18,000 ft., or be continuously exposed to tropical jungle flora, fauna, pathogens and parasites.Yet quite possibly, we need the Power of Sun Horse’s powerful combination of adaptogens, nutrients and antioxidants even more than ever before!
