Stress - Relieving Herbs Rich In Adaptogen
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

One of the common ailments that people experience every day is stress, which could be a result from over fatigue, emotional problems, and environmental changes. To combat this malady, medical practitioners often prescribe medicines that are said to provide temporary relief from further anxiety and disorder. However, due to the potency of these drugs, the regular consumption may lead to dependence. If you want to be free from stress without having to touch a potentially harmful product, then you may want to try your luck with Chinese tea infused with herbs. One plant that specializes on fighting off anxiety and stress is the Adaptogen, which grows especially in Asian countries like China and Thailand. It goes by many names, such as Miracle Leaf and Jiaogulan.

What’s great about consuming a regular dose of Adoptogen is that it can help prevent diseases that are caused by stress. Constant anxiety heavily affects the reproductive organs’ function, particularly women’s health. It is a known fact that stress causes girls to miss their periods, and it can intensify the pains that come with pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS). The great strain weakens the immunity system, making one susceptible to common colds, fever, flu, and coughs. It even heightens the risk of depression, headaches, auto-immune diseases, and lack of brain functionality. Other health problems that are brought on by tension are asthma, diabetes, ulcers, irritable bowel illness, hypertension, and cancer.

Adoptogen works by getting to the root cause of the stress. It allows people to manage stress using natural means. Though this herb is an ingredient of alternative medicine, it works as well, if not better, than Western drugs. Plus, this plant is 100% safe and natural, assuring you that it does not come with serious side effects. Adoptogen functions by increasing anti-oxidant activity, making you feel a lot younger. Anti-oxidants rid the body of free radicals that increase aging, and they also encourage detoxifying. A regular consumption of this herb improves the body’s immunity system by increasing endurance and stamina and speeding up the recovery process from illnesses. The plant helps you develop a fitter body by maximizing physical strength, enhancing muscle tone, and developing a quicker metabolism. Furthermore, it improves emotional health by uplifting moods, decreasing anxiety levels, giving a feeling of encouragement and productivity, and regulating sleep.

You might be surprised to learn that there are a number of plants and herbs that have the same stress-fighting ingredients as Adaptogen. These materials are ideal for cooking, especially if you are the type of person who cannot stomach the taste of pure leaf. These ingredients are often called adaptogenic herbs, and they are commonly found in Asian regions. Each of them contribute to a person’s overall well-being, but most importantly, it keeps you healthy by helping you handle stress. Here is a list of adaptogenic herbs that you can easily buy from your local market:

1. Red Ginseng – This Asian herb has many names, since it can be found in several countries, such as China, Japan, and Korea. It is an ideal medicine to administer to people who exhibit a deficiency in “yang”. Symptoms include muscle frailty, voice problems, and weakness in constitution. It is not a recommended product to give to those who are hot-headed and bulky. The adoptogen present in the red ginseng relieves stress, improves the operation of mental facilities, and increase work productivity. It regulates the secretion of the adrenal hormone.

2. American Ginseng – This adaptogenic herb, unlike the Red Ginseng, focuses on the yin instead of the yang. Thus, it is a treatment that is recommended for people who have a bulky constitution and who are susceptible to sudden bursts of anger. Its Adaptogen make-up calms down a person enough to develop self-control and decrease temper.

3. Siberian Ginseng – With the same properties of a ginseng, this herb grows primarily in Russia. It is reported that it can be more potent than the Red Ginseng. It is known for helping a person develop a normal and rational perceptive on how to handle all types of stress, whether physical, environmental, emotional, or mental. A regular consumption of this kind of Adaptogen shows a dramatic decrease of strain when exposed to heat, noise, and other factors.

4. Ashwaganda – It is known as Indian Ginseng, although it is not actually a type of ginseng. It comes in the form of a tonic that is meant to be drunk in its pure form. To battle stress, this Adoptogen acts as a sedative, a nervine, and an astringent all in one, suppressing early signs of tension and strain as soon as they appear.

5. Astragalus – Originally found in China, this Adoptogen herb balances the “chi”. It specializes on the health of the spleen and the production of blood. It is specially given to patients who have a weaker constitution. It is known for improving recovery from ailments and increasing one’s vitality.
