About and how it works:
Ginseng - helps alleviate a variety of symptoms, particularly the fuzzy thinking that can accompany a reproductive-hormonal imbalance as well as the hot temper and low immunity associated with stress-hormone imbalances.
The active ingredients in ginseng are called saponins or ginsenosides. Individual ginsenosides appear to have separate effects. Whereas one particular ginsenoside stimulates the central nervous system, another may sedate the central nervous system. Ginsenosides produce such effects as balancing metabolic processes, decreasing blood sugar, improving muscle tone, stimulating the endocrine system and maintaining proper hormone levels. Research has even shown that ginseng is effective in maintaining and even restoring the cell's capacity to function. Ginseng defends the human system from the effects of prolonged physical strain. It acts as a mental stimulant without the side effects of other stimulants.
Maca - has a rich content of iodine (essential for thyroid balance), zinc (important for prostate function), amino acids (precursors to hormone production) and vitamin C. Maca is also high in essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium, silica, phosphorus and iron as well as many essential trace minerals. It contains vitamins B1, B2, B12 and E and is a source of glycoside steroids, making Maca a natural and safe alternative to anabolic steroids for weight lifters. Most striking, however, is the fact that the maca root contains natural substances which stimulate the pituitary and hypothalamus. These glands in turn trigger the ovaries, adrenals, testes, thyroid, and pancreas to return to healthy functioning, thus producing normal amounts of hormones. It is being prescribed by a number of doctors to treat Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, adrenal exhaustion. The active ingredients in maca are naturally occurring alkaloids.
Ashwagandha - helps resolve adrenal stress damage.
Ashwagandha stabilizes blood sugar, increases hemoglobin (red blood count) and lowers cholesterol. It has also been shown to lower blood pressure and is highly effective in stopping the formation of stress induced ulcers. Ashwagandha is effective for insomnia but does not act as a sedative. It rejuvenates the nervous system, and eases stress. It is responsible for a healthy immune system. It has also been found effective in treating impotence, drug withdrawal, arthritic pain and anxiety. In addition, Ashwagandha has been used to support the healing of: chronic fatigue, constipation, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases/disorders, parkinsons disease, mental illness (i.e. Bipolar Disorder) and tuberculosis.
About the adaptogens:
Adaptogens are substances that are contained in the leaves, roots and sap of plants, helping people to adapt to the changing conditions of life. These plants contain all the necessary trace elements, vitamins, prehormones, amino acids and more, that helps adaption. Adaptogens assist the body in normalizing homeostasis, optimize metabolism, revitalized exhausted organ systems and improving resistance to a variety of adverse factors without side effects. They improve our innate hormone response, balancing the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. They also increase the capacity of our cells to manufacture and use cell fuel more efficiently during periods of stress and strain.
Hormonally, adaptogens are substances that help balance hormone excesses or deficits by boosting the efficiency of the sites where hormones bind with cells. Adaptogens balance the glands and brain structures, like the hypothalamus and pituitary, associated with endocrine function. They enable better response and recovery, promoting a smooth flow of energy.
