Adaptogens are a unique class of non-toxic botanicals that improve the health of your adrenal system, and help manage your body’s hormonal response to internal and external stressors of all types. They enhance the body’s ability to cope with anxiety and fight fatigue – slowly and gently, without spikes or crashes.
Adaptogens help you adapt.
These botanicals have the distinct ability to adapt their function to your body’s specific needs. Their healing effects set in subtly and gradually to normalize and regulate your body’s systems. With our fast-paced lifestyles and daily exposure to multiple stressors in the 21st century, nearly everyone can benefit from these helpful compounds.
Rhodiola Rosea- a unique adaptogen
Rhodiola Rosea, also called “the golden root,” is one of the most studied adaptogens. It grows in some of the coldest and harshest regions of the world including the Arctic and mountainous regions of the Northern Hemisphere.
Rhodiola acts like a hormone thermostat, especially as it pertains to cortisol, one of our main stress hormones. Cortisol levels are typically higher in the morning and gradually taper off in the evening and at night. Excess stress and exhaustion can cause this delicate system to become imbalanced and out of sync with our normal circadian rhythms.
Getting your cortisol back in rhythm when you’re compromised is crucial, and Rhodiola does just this – it modulates the cortisol levels in the body — raising or lowering it as needed. The active components of Rhodiola, rosavins and salidroside, help balance cortisol production, relieve anxiety and combat aging.
Studies have found that Rhodiola restores normal patterns of eating and sleeping after stress; lowers mental and physical fatigue; and protects against oxidative stress, heat stress, radiation and exposure to toxic chemicals. It also protects the heart and liver, increases use of oxygen, and improves memory.
Functional Rhodiola rosea extracts are standardized to contain >3% rosavins and >1% salidroside.
PERQUE Adreno Distress Guard contains functional Rhodiola extracts in a unique combination with another botanical adaptogen duo — Magnolia and Phellodendron.
