What is an Adaptogen?

Adaptogens are used throughout the world to enhance personal well-being and to increase cognitive performance. The body has a stress response to many environmental cues that can inhibit performance and cause an uncomfortable feeling of pressure. This feeling of pressure builds up over time and impairs our work, home, sleep, and relationship performance. Many of us are starting to become aware of the mechanism of action of stress. With awareness and understanding comes the natural human response to find a way to mitigate the feeling. We can take control of stress through education, understanding, eliminating environmental stressors, and dietary supplementation. I will save the first three for another article and focus on dietary supplementation in this one.

Adaptogen Benefits

Rhodiola Rosea is popular to take in the morning due to its mild stimulatory profile. It helps increase resilience to physical stressful situations such as lack of sleep, being overworked, or strenuous physical activities. Effective dosage is said to be 500 mg once a day.

Ashwagandha Root is standardized with a 5% extract. Most companies only have 2.5% or less. 5% is the highest extract you can get on the free market. Popular dosing is 4 capsules in the morning of stressful days, 4 capsules around lunch, and 4-8 capsules around bedtime. This herb has a lot of anti-aging properties and helps to eliminate overactive cortisol levels. On the higher dosing range, it increases testosterone in males and helps to lower prolactin at the same time.

Gynostemma is known as the anti-aging and longevity herb in China. The people of the area where it was discovered have been consuming it for years. What researchers have noticed is that they all look really young for their age. Deeper research shows that Gynostemma contains a lot of ginsenosides and gypenosides that contribute to the neuroprotective and adaptogenic properties of the herb. It’s also anti-diabetic and helps to increase insulin sensitivity while lowering blood glucose and insulin levels. Check out Examine’s article on it here.

Bacopa Monnieri is known for its acute anxiolytic effects while increasing memory in the long-term. It is fat soluble so it’s best to take with a meal. Memory effects aren’t realized until a month of consistent supplementation. The adaptogenic effects are instant however.  It works by inhibiting the reuptake of acetylcholine in the synapse. For this reason it synergizes well with ALCAR, CDP Choline, Alpha GPC, and any of the racetams.
