Stress isn’t healthy. The ways many people deal with stress aren’t either. Turning to a bag of chips or a couple of cocktails may seem harmless, but considering more than 18% of the US population suffers from some kind of anxiety disorder, these types of behavior are occurring on more than an occasional basis. Luckily, there is a more natural alternative that delivers several more benefits than only stress relief.


Eleuthero, or Siberian ginseng, is classified as an adaptogenic herb, working subtly with each of the body’s systems to improve health overall. These types of plants are known for helping your body adapt to both physical and emotional changes in your environment and earned the classification by traditional Chinese medicine as “Superior Herbs.” This classification led to its use by soldiers, Olympic athletes, and cosmonauts in the late 1960s. 


Siberian ginseng has multiple uses. Available in many forms, including tablet, capsule, or as a drinkable tea, it may be taken alone as a single remedy or in combination with other synergistic herbs. It is helpful for conditions of the heart and blood vessels such as high or low blood pressure and rheumatic heart disease. Siberian ginseng contains compounds that positively affect the adrenal glands (those that secrete stress-fighting hormones), and taking the herb is believed to boost the body’s capacity to handle physical stresses, with one’s resistance to disease and overall energy level increasing as well.


Siberian ginseng could increase mental alertness, particularly in the early stages of dementia and Alzheimer’s. The herb’s ability to accelerate the transmission of nerve impulses may also enhance memory. Healthy men and women taking the herb demonstrated above average results during tests of mental sharpness, and even under extreme pressure were able to maintain mental clarity. In addition to brain function, it is also used in the treatment of colds, diabetes, fibromyalgia, kidney disease, and rheumatoid arthritis. When was the last time a potato chip did all that for you?


It might be nice to sit back and relax with a glass of red from time to time, but if you’d rather take a more organic approach to your stress relief, consider giving Siberian ginseng a try. With the added energy coupled with a clearer state of mind, you might be able to tackle the tasks that are causing you stress in the first place!
