There are several botanical medicines supporting adrenal function. The most notable are Chinese ginseng, Siberian ginseng, rhodiola, and ashwagandha.
As mentioned in the last article, some used (vitalized) hemp oil, such as my uncle, for anxiety issues and with great success. HEMP, is widely known for many benefits, besides stress.
All of these plants exert beneficial effects on adrenal function and enhance resistance to stress and are often referred to as “adaptogens.” These plants have historically been used for the following:
• Restore vitality in debilitated and feeble individuals
• Increase feeling of energy
• Improve mental and physical performance
• Prevent the negative effects of stress and enhance the body’s response to stress
Both Siberian and Chinese ginseng have been shown to enhance the ability to cope with various stressors, both physical and mental. Presumably this anti-stressed action is mediated by mechanisms that control the adrenal glands. Ginseng delays the onset of the alarm phase of the general adaptation syndrome and reduces its severity.
According to research studies, people taking either of the ginsengs typically report an increased sense of well-being.
In the last article of this series about stress, I will provide a quick rundown or highlights of what had been transpired in the other nine articles.
