Adaptogens-You Never Knew You Could Feel THIS Good!

The sound advice of Hippocrates to, “Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food” rings as true today as ever. Rushing around to find the easy out to our ailments and lack of energy (instead of looking to nature and whole plant materials to find an answer) means we are missing out on what natural remedies can do for our entire bodies.

You may not be familiar with them but there is a group of herbs called adaptogens and they support our whole system, inside and out, the sort of thing Hippocrates was referring to. It’s not just support for your entire body…you won’t believe what else adaptogens have up their sleeves.

We have become accustomed to the idea of finding something over- or behind-the-counter to “fix” a cold, ache or queasy stomach rather than looking to what we can find in our own kitchens or herb gardens.  Hanna once said that using herbs and foods “work without danger of poisoning the system. They are effective and handed down from mothers to daughters. These remedies are at hand and with the economic loss in every pocket, are inexpensive.” What happened to using food and herbs as a way to heal ourselves without harmful side effects?

Can we ever move away from the quick fix mentality? I think so but we have to turn our focus from “magical” pills and utilize the healing properties of what nature has produced and man continues to copy.  The most effective gift from nature with a wide range of benefits and a tradition reaching back thousands of years are the adaptogens.

The Basics on Adaptogens

Ginseng Root is one of the most powerful adaptogens.

“Adaptogen” is a term used by herbalists to refer to a natural herb that is proposed to increase the body’s resistance to stress, trauma, anxiety and fatigue! In the past they have been called rejuvenating herbs as they are useful in treating imbalances of the body, assist in getting better sleep, help you ward off illness by boosting your immune system and increase energy and mental clarity. While prescription drugs remain in your system and often effect various organs, once the job of the adaptogen is complete, those herbs are eliminated or incorporated into the body without side effects.

Adaptogens are only now gaining a great momentum in the US but have been a favored group of herbs by Asians for thousands of years.  What makes an herb adaptogenic?

  1. Nontoxic to the user; non-habit forming.
  2. Generates a nonspecific response (doesn’t target a specific body region and instead benefits the body as a whole).
  3. Creates a state of balance/homeostasis.

The basis of adaptogenic herbs is rooted in the thought that “The whole is only as strong as the sum of its parts.” It is counterproductive to treat only a symptom of an illness rather than treating the whole body and that’s why adaptogens are so powerful. Adaptogens generally work by strengthening the immune system, nervous system and/or glandular systems. In herbs like Schizandra , RhodiolaReishi MushroomsGinseng, Maca and Licorice Root, benefits for the entire body can be attained. When used in a daily regimen these herbs allow you to stay healthy, stable and happy and have even been used to treat not only stress related conditions but also have been effective in allergy and asthma reduction!

Adaptogens work to increase your body’s own ability to fight off illness before it sets in, a direct contrast to modern drugs which “attack” specific disease symptoms after you’re thoroughly sick.  As we become more aware of the healthful benefits of these herbs, we are more excited about the value they provide our lives and hope you will consider their value to your health as well.  For example, we recently learned that adaptogens are useful in helping our bodies cope with the imbalances that come from environmental pollutants. Whether the effects of radiation or daily smog are a concern for you, adaptogenic herbs can play a role in keeping you healthy.

The introduction of adaptogens into your diet is an easy way to not only prepare for cold and flu season in your home but can also help you fight the winter blues, keep you feeling energized and alert and help you maintain a balance in mind and body year round.  In most cases, experiencing the healthful benefits from adaptogens takes time; your body needs your patience. While adaptogens seem like wonder herbs, they are not a cure-all and if you are currently taking prescription drugs you should speak with your doctor before beginning a daily regimen including them.

Take a look for answers to frequently asked questions and learn why Kroeger is putting the natural back in herbs.

Schizandra berries are sticky & difficult to get in a capsule but Kroeger doesn't add any flowing agents to the berry!

Aren’t all Herbal Extracts Natural? Unfortunately most companies use harsh toxic solvents in the extraction process such as acetone, denatured alcohol, or hexane which are not natural. When herbal extracts are created with these solvents, their purity is stripped and the potency of the herb is affected. What makes Complete Concentrates so different is that through a water (or in the case of Milk Thistle and Echinacea, water and food grade alcohol) extraction process, no solvents are introduced and you’re ingesting a product that is safe and toxin-free.

Do Solvents Evaporate off Herbs During Extraction? Solvents do evaporate from the herbs but there may be a residue left. Think of it this way: Imagine eating spinach soaked in nail polish remover (a common solvent in herb extraction) then letting it dry…would you want to eat it? Now imagine eating spinach soaked in water and allowing that to dry. Is the water soaked spinach more appealing to eat? Many of the solvents used in extraction methods are toxic not only to people but also the environment.  Add to the list of frustrations with solvents, unlike excipients or fillers they are not required by law to be listed on labels and companies who use these toxins want to keep it that way.

What are Excipients? After the extraction process herbs are liquid and are often sticky, posing a problem when a company wishes to encapsulate the herb. The easiest solution to this problem is to add a carrier substance for that liquid to be sprayed on. These carrier substances, or excipients, add another ingredient to the label for companies that choose to use them (like magnesium sterate or maltodextrin). In the case of Kroeger’s Concentrates, the liquid extract is sprayed back onto the herb which has been through the extraction process or on fresh herb so that nothing new is introduced to the product.

What do Flowing Agents Do? During encapsulation, especially with sticky herbal extracts, some companies prefer to add flowing agents to absorb excess moisture and speed up the capping process. While this saves production time costs, many flowing agents are synthetic and dilute the extract while adding further ingredients to your label. Look for the addition of rice, wheat, corn, whey, or other powdered substances; these flowing agents are not needed and are negatively impacting the potency of the herb.

What is a Filler? What do Fillers do? An average capsule has room for about 350-500 milligrams of herbs. Using only extracted herb is excessive and expensive so to cut corners, many companies add ingredients to the capsule to fill space. While some of these ingredients (rice powder for example) may have some sort of nutritional value, if a company is touting the purity of their concentrated products, there is no need for a filler to be included.

What does Full Spectrum Mean? Kroeger’s Complete Concentrates are a full spectrum product which means that the constituents of the herb are present in their natural ratios. When a concentrated herb is full spectrum, all of the constituents are concentrated at the same percentage.

If you have any other questions about Kroeger’s line of Complete Concentrates, let us know! We’re happy to share any information we can and hope you see now why this line of concentrates is superior to other products on the market. Paying attention to labels and understanding what methods were used in creating an herb is just as important as knowing what ingredients are going into your system.
