What are Adaptogens?
Adaptogens are a special classification
of herbs which include Jiaogulan and many others. They have a long
history of use and are designated adaptogen
only if they do no harm and work only when the body requires.
What makes an Herb Adaptogenic?
Adaptogenic is a term used to reflect
the ability of a herb to work as a biological response modifier.
Moreover, for a herb to be adaptogenic
it must meet three criteria defined by the Russian doctors N.V.
Lazarev in 1947 and I.I. Brekman in 1958:
- The herb should cause no harm and
place no additional stress on the body.
- The herb should help the body adapt
to many and varied environmental and psychological stresses.
- The herb must have a nonspecific action
on the body, supporting all the major systems.
How common are Adaptogenic properties in plants?
Not many plants possess adaptogenic
properties. In fact it is estimated that only one in 4,000 plants
is classified as an adaptogen.
