When it comes to health and wellness, adaptogens are among nature’s most powerful substances. Adaptogens are a small and special category of herbs that can help us adapt to stress of all types while increasing our energy, strength, and stamina.
These unique plants are known to survive and even thrive in the harshest conditions on earth. And when consumed, scientists have discovered that adaptogenic herbs pass on their amazing ability to adapt to stress to both humans and animals(1)
Today, there is only a small group of plants that are classified as true adaptogens. What makes them different from other plant foods and even from most superfoods is that they contain a wide range of multifaceted compounds that are nutritionally superior to the typical vitamins, minerals, and substances found in most healing herbs.
The Use of Adaptogens From Ancient Chinese Healers to Viking Warriors and Siberian Hunters
Adaptogens have actually been used for thousands of years in both traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. Folk healers and people from Russia, Japan, Korea, and Europe have also long been known to use adaptogenic plants to create tonics and medicine. (2)
Various Asian cultures have used adaptogens in one form or another for centuries to both heal and prevent diseases, to improve mental acuity, and to promote physical strength and stamina.(2)
Viking warriors and Siberian hunters used adaptogens to help them survive under the most stressful conditions imaginable, such as during fierce battles, on long, arduous journeys and living in extremely harsh conditions. These hunters and warriors valued adaptogens as sources of increased energy, strength, and endurance.
Today, modern science has discovered that adaptogen herbs contain substances that support the immune system, fight against stress, inflammation, and fatigue, reduce anxiety and depression, and even slow down aging. (2)
In the span of several decades, thousands of research studies were conducted, and the USSR was able to rediscover the significance of adaptogens for health and wellness. (2,3)
But because of the global situation during that era, the USSR forbade their scientists from speaking about the results they collected or from publishing their findings outside the country. (4)
The Soviet Union gave adaptogens to their Olympic athletes, astronauts, political officers, scientists, doctors, military, and even to World Champion chess players because of their amazing ability to reduce stress and strengthen immunity coupled with its incredible physical and mental performance-boosting properties. (3)

To help you know more about the power that each herb holds, here is a summary of what each adaptogen can do for you.
Protects your health from the dangers of stress and balances your body as reported in thousands of studies
Also known as the "King of Adaptogens," the effectiveness of this plant in protecting your health from stress and balancing your body is backed up by no less than 3,000 scientific studies.
There are more published scientific studies on eleuthero than on any other herb in the world! (3)
This is why we know today that eleuthero has therapeutic value and that it provides various health benefits. The use of eleuthero dates back two thousand years as it is used in traditional Chinese medicine to prevent respiratory tract infections, colds, and the flu. It was also believed to be able to provide energy and vitality. (3)
Some of the health benefits that Eleuthero can provide include protecting your body from the effects of stress, improving memory and cognition, as well as improving physical performance. Scientific studies have also proven that Eleuthero can help improve mental performance in folks suffering from fatigue. This adaptogen may also help cut high cholesterol. (5,6,7)
This adaptogen protects the body and enhances various body systems against many different types of stressors, including those resulting from workload, heat, cold, excessive exercise, muscle loss, and even radiation. (3)
More than any other adaptogen, eleuthero helps balance the body. For example:
Eleuthero's wide range of therapeutic and normalizing actions justify its reputation as the King of Adaptogens.
For mental health, clear-thinking, physical performance, and cardiovascular protection
Rhodiola has also undergone extensive clinical trials. It has been put through scientific testing in both animals and humans, and it has been proven to help with both mental health and physical performance.
This adaptogen is known to have the potential to protect the brain, and it has also shown promise when it comes to helping to fight against depression. (9)
In the past decades, it was widely used by Russian athletes and cosmonauts to increase energy and stamina. (3,10) Rhodiola is also cardioprotective, having the ability to normalize the heart rate immediately after intense exercise.
Rhodiola can also control stress-induced cardiovascular conditions, and it may also protect the heart from stress and arrhythmias as it is known to possess powerful antioxidants.
Rhodiola improves the nervous system and mental functions, including memory, by increasing the blood supply to the muscles and brain, and it also helps increase protein synthesis. (11) Both human and animal experiments have demonstrated that Rhodiola extract enhances immunity and increases the capacity for exercise. Rhodiola extract not only possesses a high nutritive value, but it has also been shown to prolong animal life. (3)
The premier anti-aging and rejuvenating herb used in Ayurvedic medicine for millenia
This adaptogenic herb has been used for at least a thousand years in Ayurvedic medicine. Today, it has been proven to be as potent as two prescription medications formulated for slowing down aging and extending lifespan.
As one of the most revered plants in India, it is used primarily as an anti-aging herb and for promoting sleep. (12, 13)
As one of the elite herbs in Ayurvedic medicine, Ashwagandha has also been known to promote physical and mental health by increasing your resistance against diseases and environmental stressors. In traditional Indian medicine, it has been used to treat illnesses like asthma, bronchitis, psoriasis, and dementia. It 's also used as an aphrodisiac. (14)
Ashwagandha was specifically chosen to be part of Peak Male because of its potential for combating arthritis, relieving anxiety, reducing insomnia, and also for the treatment of male infertility. (15) We also chose this adaptogenic herb because of its potency against aging and its capability to prevent or inhibit senile dementia. (12)
Reverses Low T, balances hormones, and fights against fatigue
As a potent adaptogen against aging, Rhaponticum has been known to be useful when it comes to delaying its early signs and symptoms. It may help to reverse Low T, balance hormones, and reduce the effects of mental or physical fatigue by revitalizing the blood and the organs. It nourishes the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal-thyroid axis (HPAT), the endocrine hub, and it improves recovery from illness. (3,16)
When used during periods of intense muscular activity, Rhaponticum supports proper energy metabolism, maintains stable blood sugar levels, increases the blood supply to the muscles and brain, and shortens the recovery period after prolonged muscular exercises. (17)
This adaptogen is beneficial for athletes since it may help provide lean muscle mass and improve strength, stamina, and endurance. (18)
Rhaponticum may also help protect the brain after a stroke, and it may also help protect the cardiovascular system by reducing your risk for heart attacks. (19,20)
Provides all-day long energy and stamina
Schizandra has been known for ages as a potent herb that can help fight against fatigue.
Used by generations of Siberian hunters who chew its seeds or make tea from its dried berries to give them extra energy for long journeys, schizandra's adaptogenic properties act much like a stimulant. It works on the central nervous system and gives both mind and body a boost without the jitters that you would typically get from coffee or other stimulants.
Scientists in the Far East regions discovered that schizandra is so powerful that local hunters can hunt for an entire day without food by simply eating schizandra berries and seeds. (21,22,23)
Aside from its effects against fatigue, Schizandra is also beneficial for athletes because it enhances athletic performance and preserves muscle mass. (24) This adaptogenic herb may also help reduce the effects of stress by supporting your body against nervous system exhaustion. It may also help you avoid insomnia, and help with liver detoxification. Its adaptogenic properties may also help reduce physical weakness, improve vision, help you deal with diarrhea, and prevent forgetfulness and chemical toxicity. (3)
The Swedish Herbal Institute Research & Development has also reported Schizandra's ability to increase physical working capacity and its ability to provide you with a stress-protective effect against a broad spectrum of harmful factors including heat, burns, cold, frostbites, high pressures, inflammation, irradiation, and heavy metal intoxication.
These same researchers also found out that, in healthy people, Schizandra increases endurance, accuracy of movement, and mental performance. (25)
Ginseng is highly prized throughout Asia. With more than 500 scientific papers published on it worldwide, Ginseng has been used as a traditional medicine in Asia for more than five thousand years. (3)
Ginseng is used to treat fatigue, overexertion, nervous exhaustion, low blood pressure, high blood pressure, mild depression, and blood sugar regulation.
Today, Panax ginseng is still considered valuable by modern medicine because it may provide a wide range of health benefits, including boosting the immune system and fighting against anorexia. Ginseng may also help protect your cardiovascular system from heart disease, and anemia. This adaptogen may also help with diabetes, and neurodegenerative diseases. (3)
Scientific studies have also proven its significant effect on enhancing cognitive performance, especially on older people. It has also been proven to help decrease inflammation, and help older individuals deal with erectile dysfunction. (31,32,33,34)
In China, Ginseng is classified as one of the most highly prized herbs because of its capability to nourish and revitalize both mind and body. According to traditional healers, Ginseng was said to "support the five visceral organs, calm the nerves, tranquilize the mind, stop convulsions, expunge evil spirits, qi, and support the lungs, spleen, and the stomach.
Ginseng was also used to generate fluids, benefit the heart, and calm the spirit. Its primary purpose is to treat qi deficiency patterns, especially of the spleen and lung meridian systems.
It has been used for generations to treat various ailments, including pneumonia or bronchitis (especially with a dry cough), chronic fatigue (especially when accompanied by anxiety), asthma, chronic stress with depression, and autoimmune diseases of the lungs or GI tract. (3) Panax Ginseng is also known to work best when taken together with other adaptogens.
For energy, strength, recovery, endurance, nervous system balance and strong immunity
In traditional Indian medicine, shilajit is widely used to help slow down the aging process and prolong life simultaneously. It is also used to improve general health by providing the body's cells and tissues with protection and support. (3)
The word Shilajit in Sanskrit translates to "destroyer of weakness."
Shilajit is considered a yogavahi (a substance that is capable of penetrating the deepest tissues of the body). Thus it is believed to help strengthen and enhance the various systems and processes within. (3)
Decades ago, Shilajit was used by the Soviets to help improve the health of their elite military personnel, cosmonauts, and athletes.(3,29) With the help of recent scientific studies, we have begun to rediscover its true potency as an adaptogen.
According to research, its adaptogenic properties lie with its capability to help support the body's immune and nervous system. It has been known to act as a potent antioxidant and free radical scavenger. It may also be able to help with chronic fatigue, memory loss, sexual dysfunction, and even tumor reduction.
Today, modern medicine has proven Shilajit's ability to increase testosterone in males, to help overcome altitude sickness, improve heart health, and aid in fighting against obesity. (35,36,37,38)
According to traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine, there is hardly any disease that cannot be controlled or cured with shilajit. It can be used for a wide range of health problems, including genital and urinary diseases, and diabetes. It can also be used to help support the liver, gallbladder, spleen, as well as the entire digestive system.
Shilajit is also useful as an aphrodisiac, as a tonic, a stimulant, and as an internal antiseptic.
Since it also possesses diuretic properties, it may be used for weight management, for the treatment of worms and piles, as well as for renal and bladder stones. Other uses for Shilajit in traditional medicine include nervous diseases, amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, menorrhagia, eczema, anorexia, and fractures. (3,31)
