Product description

We deal with stress every day, and every day our bodies strive to adapt and stay balanced and healthy.

These rejuvenating herbs and tonics help the body to “adapt” to the many influences it encounters. They increase stamina and counter the normal effects of aging and thus re becoming important tools in sports medicine and the prevention and treatment of chronic fatigue and other stress-related disorders. 

Winston and Maimes present the historical uses of these herbal remedies in India, Russia, China, and the Americas and explain how they work and why they are so effective at combating stress-induced illness. Monographs for each adaptogen also present the latest scientific research and include the origin, traditional use, actions, properties, preparation, and dosage for each herb.
