ELEUTHERO (SIBERIAN GINSENG) – One of the most widely used herbs in the world, Eleuthero has its roots (no pun intended) in China, Korea and Russia, which is why it is sometimes referred to as “Siberian Ginseng”(interesting, since it actually has no botanical relationship to actual ginseng, though its effects can be similar).
Eleuthero is known among Chinese Herbalists as the “King of the Adaptogens” for its broad and powerful abilities to help the body adapt to stress and maintain consistent energy levels over long periods of time. It is often given to individuals who suffer from fatigue, as well as a tonic for people who are frequently under high amounts of stress.
Eleuthero has a profound ability to restore the adrenal glands of people who have experienced or continue to experience chronic stress.
This powerful root also works wonders on the immune system, helping to treat the common cold as well as autoimmune disorders like fibromyalgia and arthritis. Eleuthero also functions as a brain tonic, regarded for its ability to enhance concentration, increase focus, all while maintaining even energy levels so there is no crash like you might get while consuming caffeine.
To top it all off, Eleuthero is also a potent antioxidant, leaving us to wonder, “Just how did I get through life without it?”
