“Adaptogens are herbal pharmaceuticals. They work to counteract the effects of stress in the body. Stress causes very real physical changes in the body, including harming the neurological, endocrine, and immune systems. Adaptogens have stimulant properties that help counteract those harmful effects.”
Statistically speaking “at least 70 percent of all doctors’ visits are for stress related ailments." Unhealthy stress can cause high blood pressure, heart disease and a host of other health maladies. Research from Yale University revealed that feelings of sadness, anger, stress, impatience, or anxiousness increase a person’s risk of suffering from atrial fibrillation (heart attack) nearly 600 percent. Worse, these effects aren’t temporary; the risk can be carried over to the next day.
Our Kadence Naturals Adaptogen product Adapto I contains twelve Adaptogenic herbs designed to help reduce your bodily stress. These herbs include Asian Panax Ginseng. Asian Panax Ginseng has been shown to successfully improve subjective calmness and some aspects of working memory performance in healthy young adults. Scientists have concluded that Panax Ginseng “possesses significant anti-stress properties and can be used for the treatment of stress-induced disorders.”
Rhodiola is also an ingredient of Adapto I. A human trial conducted in 2009 by scientists in Sweden tested Rhodiola’s impact on people “suffering with stress-related fatigue.” They found that repeatedly administering Rhodiola Rosea “exerts an anti-fatigue effect that increases mental performance, particularly the ability to concentrate, and decreases cortisol response to awakening stress in burnout patients with fatigue syndrome.”
Shake well before each use.
A tincture is simply a liquid extract of an herb(s) that you take by mouth. The nice thing about tinctures is they concentrate the useful chemical constituents and medicinal properties of the plant material into a liquid (usually alcohol, vegetable glycerin or apple cider vinegar). Kadence Naturals uses organic grain alcohol in our Tinctures. Tinctures are often more effective than over the counter or prescription medications without the nasty side effects.
Tinctures are best taken on an empty stomach. This gives the herb(s) a chance to get into your system undeterred. Everyone's body is different. 1-2 droppers initially is more than adequate, from there you can adjust up or down.
A single squeeze is considered one dropperful of tincture. No matter how long your dropper is one squeeze will usually provide the same amount of tincture since the bulb on the dropper is the same size. Squeeze the dropper to release a dose under your tongue. The tincture will enter your system most effectively if taken under the tongue. The tincture will taste very strong. Try to hold it under your tongue for 30-60 seconds before swallowing. If the taste is too much you may take a sip of juice or water to rid the taste. You can also add the Tincture to your juice or water as well as swallow it.
