Adaptogens and Stress
Many factors influence how the body responds to life’s challenges. Adaptogens are substances that mobilize internal energy reserves, preventing the body from overreacting to stress and thus avoiding, reducing, or delaying the burnout that follows periods of extreme stress. True adaptogens act by extending the phase of resistance, a state in which the body’s capacities are optimally mobilized to adapt to new challenges.
A Natural Solution for Coping with Stress
AOR’s Ortho•Adapt contains a carefully formulated blend of vitamins, nutrients and herbs with adaptogenic properties. These include Pantethine (an active co-enzyme form of vitamin B5), Vitamin C, wellknown botanicals like Rhodiola, Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra), Siberian “ginseng” (Eleutherococcus senticosus), and adrenal glandulars, providing superior support for the adrenal glands, which are key to the body’s stress coping abilities. Ortho•Adapt is also available in a vegan formula which does not contain glandulars.
Ortho•Adapt is used in herbal medicine to help improve mental or physical performance after periods of mental or physical exertion and as a tonic to help relieve general debility and to aid during convalescence.
