Adaptogenic Herbs in the Support of Stress and Fatigue

Adaptogens is the general name for a class of plants that help to support and normalize body health, especially the adrenal system. The support of this hormonal system may help the body to better respond to both physical and mental stresses. 

The use of plants to help body healing is often referred to as phytotherapy, and adaptogens may also often be classified as rejuvenating herbs. In traditional Chinese medicine they are referred to as Qi tonics, whilst in Indian Ayurvedic medicine they are known as rasayanas.

Many of the herbs with known apoptogenic properties have been used as traditional remedies for thousands of years. However, the term ‘adaptogens’ –for the pharmacological use of herbs and substances that aid the body’s balance through homeostasis and to help support cell response to biological stresses – was only termed in the late 1940s [1]. 

Adaptogens may portray non-specific resistances to environmental and emotional conditions, and thus may help support the body from adverse biological, chemical, and physical stress factors.

One of the key advantages of adaptogens is that they often work in a subtle manner. As they are thought to support a healthy hormone balance they may help to prevent bodily stresses associated with jolts and crashes that can often occur when spikes in hormones and glucose happen, such as after eating a sugar rich meal. 

One of the main parts of the body that is a target of the bioactives present in apoptogenic herbs are the adrenal glands. These glands are located just above the kidneys. They are able to secrete numerous major stress hormones, such as adrenaline, cortisol, and aldosterone. The enzymes involved in catalyzes of hormones secreted by the adrenal glands may be present both within and without the gland. These hormones can be divided into three main categories:

  • Androgens – sex hormones involved in the creation of DHEA, and further down the line testosterones, DHT, and estrogens.
  • Corticosteroid – Steroidal hormones that play a role in balancing the body’s salts, glucose, protein, and fat levels. Cortisol plays a role in aging, and alongside adrenaline in the simulation of the body’s fight or flight response. 
  • Adrenaline and noradrenaline (Epinephrine and norepinephrine) – these play a major role in the regulation of heart rate and blood pressure.

In addition to their effect on stressful situations, many adaptogens are also reported to have nootropic effects. Taking apoptogenic substances may help the body respond to stress and adrenal fatigue in a healthy manner.

These herbs may also help to support restful sleep, weight control, the immune system, and be helpful for the enhancement of energy balance and mood. 

So what should you look for in an adaptogen Supplement? You will be pleased to learn that we have designed VitaMonk AdaptoTrax™ capsules to include some of the most effective apoptogenic ingredients known to man. The core components of the supplement are as follows:

Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera

This herb is traditionally used in Ayurveda medicine. Its root has a distinct horse like smell (although you can't tell when it's in capsule form). It is thought to help with the body’s response to anxiety, to support virility (to be marked by strength), support physical performance, and may also have a neuroprotective effect. It may also be beneficial to men, as it has been reported to support testicular and sperm health. 

The Ashwagandha root is rich in numerous bioactive compounds including steroidal lactones such as Withanone, Withaferin A, Withanolide, and Withanoside, and in catechins and numerous acids [2].  

The use of Ashwagandha may help to lower the perception of stress through reducing the amount of the enzyme NADPH diaphosphorase (eNOS) and through corticosterone signaling [3]. This may also be the main reason for the root’s potential neuroprotective effects [3].

The use of Ashwagandha may also help to support social interaction as it may help to regulate serotonin, it has been reported to help bring about a more tranquil and less anxious state in rats [4].

Rhodiola Rosea

The herb Rhodiola Rosea (Golden root; Aaron’s rod) has long been used in traditional Chinese and Scandinavian medicine for the potent support of cognition and vitality. It may also play a role in healthy aging. It is classed as an adaptogen because of its potential role in the support of stress and fatigue. 

The main biological active compounds found in the roots of Rhodiola Rosea include Tyrosol, Salidrodide, Rosavins, Benzyl-O-β-glycopyranoside, Viridoside, β-sitosterol, and gallic and cinnamic acids [5]. 

The use of the Rhodiola Rosea root extract as an apoptogenic supplement has been reported to help support cognitive fatigue in young adults [6] and to help enhance attention [7]. The plant is also associated with a healthier control of appetite during times of stress in female rats [8]. 

Bacopa (Water Hyssop)

The nootropic herb Bacopa monnieri has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine for the support of mental function and formation such as recollection, memory, and comprehension. Compounds found in this plant are known to affect neural communication and the dopamine and serotonergic systems.

The plant may have the potential to help people de-stress after a busy day [9]. It may support physiological stress through affecting the expression of HSP70 in the hippocampus [10].

Compounds present in this plant may support the regulation of dopamine and serotonin levels without impacting noradrenaline, and may help to prevent against spiking of the dopamine hormone occurring, such as may occur following the consumption of caffeine [11]. 

Panax Ginseng

This true Ginseng belongs to the Araliaceae plant family. It has been linked to the support of cognition, immunity, and mood. It is rich in a class of molecules known as ginsenosides, which themselves largely consist of steroidal saponins [12].

It is thought to play a role in the reduction of stress through affecting transcription of neural enzymes such as tyrosine hydroxylase and dopamine β-hydroxylase [13]. 

Siberian Ginseng (Eleutherococcus Senticosus)

Despite its name this is not a true ginseng. It earned its name because it is thought to share many of the potential health benefits that are often linked to the use of ginseng. It has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine (cì wǔ jiā). When used as an adaptogen it is thought to help support stress, immunity, fatigue, and work capacity. 

Siberian Ginseng’s main bioactive components include Eleutherosides, Ciwujianosides, Quercetin, and Sesamin [14]. This plant’s adaptogenic stress protective role may in part be a consequence of the stimulation of molecular chaperone expression [15]. 

Holy Basil

This plant has both culinary and traditional Ayurveda medicinal uses. It is known to be a good source of ursolic acid and is also rich in bioactives such as Eugenol, ocimumosides, and Rosmarinic acid [16]. 

In addition to its potential role in the support of stress, the use of this adaptogenic herb may also help to support testosterone regulation [17], and may help to protect the liver from damage by preventing the build-up of cadmium [18].

Schizandra Berry (Schisandra Chinensis)

This vine is also known as Chinese Magnolia Vine. It has long been used in traditional Russian and in Chinese medicine as a support for work capacity, coughs, urinary and lung health, for general wellness, adrenal "fatigue" and to help combat fatigue [19].

The plant is rich in bioactive secondary metabolites such as lignans and triterpenes, quercetin, melatonin, and vitamins C and E [20].

Cordyceps

This mushroom is used in traditional Chinese medications to support longevity, healthy aging, boost testosterone levels, and to increase vitality. Cordyceps supplementation has been reported to support fatigue and stress in rats [21]. Endurance athletes sometimes report a quantum leap in improved times and bulletproof endurance ability when using cordyceps. It's sometimes referred to as the "dragon herb". There is a famed claim that many of the champions from the 2008 olympics in Beijing China were taking the super herb which contributed to their impressive performances. This claim is impossible to research or verify though of course, it could just be good nutrition and training. 

Its main biologically active components include cordycepin, ergosterol glucosamine, and numerous polysaccharides [22].
