The pain relieving expert is asked: Tell me, don’t you know something I can do to be less susceptible to stress?I am under constant stress. And I need something to increase my resistance. Any ideas?
“Well, it might make sense to reduce the things that stress you out, right? Instead of installing something in addition to avoid it. I’m not the first person to say that. But let’s see… “
“Do you know Rhodiola?”
No. What is it?
“It’s an “adaptogen”. An “adaptogen” must have the following parameters, among others: Increased resistance to many different stressors, normalisation of bodily functions that are out of balance during periods of stress, regardless of whether there is an under- or overfunction, The plant itself must be completely harmless and must have no or only minimal side effects. “
Interesting. I suppose that’s not a lot of plants. And what is it called again Rodola?
“Something like that. Rhodiola. It increases energy production in the cell.It increases serotonin and dopamine levels.It promotes DNA repair. It has antioxidant and anticarcinogenic effects. It also improves the oxygen supply to the body. “
And all this without negatively affecting the body’s own processes? Stop it!!
“As I said – to qualify as an “adaptogen”, this is a basic requirement. It alleviates stress reactions of all kinds, improves performance at work and in sports, promotes concentration and coordination, combats insomnia and strengthens the immune system. And I could extend this list even further. “
Ok, Ok… I see. And what else is there to consider?
“The quality. High-quality rhodiola preparations consist of root extracts, i.e. not just the powder of the ground root. The recommended daily dose is between 200 and 600 mg of a rhodiola extract, which can be divided into two doses/capsules per day. I would not use it in the evening as it has a slightly pushing effect. It may make sense to start with a smaller amount and then increase it. “
But then surely it’s addictive, like caffeine, isn’t it?
“Rhodiola extract is considered safe and does not contain any addictive potential. Unlike nicotine and caffeine. Rarely, headaches may occur. It should not be combined with antidepressants (SSRIs) without the doctor’s consent. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should not take Rhodiola.”
And where do I get it?
“From the distributor you trust or from me. “
Well then. Thank you.
