Adaptogens to Heal and Reduce Environmental Stress

Adaptogens have been part of the Ayurveda and Chinese herbal practices from ancient times – dating back thousands of years. The word ‘adaptogens’ got its name around 1947 from Dr. Nikolai Lazarev, a Russian scientist.

He wanted to find certain substances that would help the body to be able to adapt to emotional and physical stress. In ancient times, people would look to plants to get better, passing down the knowledge from one generation to the next.

Adaptogens have normalizing effects on the body, supporting the adrenal glands – glands which are responsible for our responses when we are under stress. When the adrenal glands are activated constantly by hectic stressful lives, they become exhausted.

It is also believed and speculated that the diet was ‘created’ by a specialist in marketing and not a nutritional expert at all. He supposedly developed the website about this diet and now generates a huge income from the paid advertisements.
