Adaptabili-tea

Program: Restoring Adrenal Health | Episode: 1 | Runtime: 11m 17s | Release date: 2010

This segment features: David Wolfe.

This adaptogenic tea provides many of the main nutrients required for rebuilding the adrenals and maintaining optimal adrenal health. Stevia is used in this recipe as a sweetener because it is best to avoid sugar to help rebuild these very important glands.

Maca root has been found to be effective for adrenal fatigue. Individuals with adrenal fatigue often rely on the use of stimulants to give them energy, but this does more damage in the long run. When used consistently, maca has the power to nourish and stimulate the hypothalamus and pituitary glands, bringing balance back to the adrenals.

Gynostemma supports overall health and has a strong anti-fatigue effect. It is used as a virtual “cure-all” in China, where the people who collect it, grow it, and consume it call it “Magical Grass.” The benefits of gynostemma lie in its extraordinary adaptogenic qualities. It is double-directional in its effects (e.g., it can bring the immune response up or down depending on what the body requires for homeostasis), so it has the ability to bring balance to the body under a wide range of stressful circumstances.

Research conducted by the Chinese Academy of Sciences has consistently indicated that gynostemma may be the most powerful of all the Chinese herbs, perhaps due to its extraordinary array of over 120 healing saponin compounds.

He Shou Wu is unsurpassed in its ability to provide deep, primordial energy (jing) to the body via the Kidney meridian system. He Shou Wu— also known as Ho Shou Wu or Fo-Ti—is a longevity and yin essence replenishing herb. It cleanses the body, especially the kidney and liver. It shares the position as the primary essence tonic of Chinese herbalism with Lycium fruit, also known as goji berry.

Lol - I just have to be honest here. I am new to all this naturalpath stuff and I think all this information is great! But are there any normal inGredients to help the adrenals? Just the thought of trying to find all the items on this list makes me exhausted. I also checked out the warehouse link which is great but since I live in Canada shipping would cost me an additional 34$+$. Any help is appreciated!

Hi Tina, some more common ingredients for balancing the adrenals are the following: Ashwaganda / Ginseng, Cordycep Mushroom, Holy Basil aka Tulsi and Chamomile. Before spending large amounts on adaptogens and supplements, it would be best to explore exactly what your body needs. Here's a great article that breaks down information on Adrenal Fatigue: http://www.foodmatters.com/article/treating-chronic-fatigue-and-adrenal-fatigue-naturally. We also suggest seeking the opinion of a holistic health care provider as they will be able to provide advice specific to your individual circumstance.

He used 6 items but only four are listed in the recipe. Can you list the two herbs after cordyceps please? They weren't words that I could figure out whatthey were. Thank you!
