“Discover the Closely Guarded Soviet Secret that Resulted in Winning an Unprecedented 195 Medals in the 1980 Olympics”

From the Cold War to the Space Race, the U.S.S.R. had one mission:

To Conquer the World

And only one country stood in its way: the U.S.A.

It was a very dangerous time in history. The world was on edge as its two great Superpowers were pitted against each other in a frightening nuclear arms race with the threat of World War III and nuclear annihilation looming on the horizon.

The West never forgot the day during the height of the Cold War when Communist dictator, Nikita Khrushchev, in a speech to Western diplomats, took off his shoe and banged it loudly on the podium in front of him as he angrily shouted:

-Communist Dictator, Nikita Khrushchev, 1960


Or the Cuban Nuclear Missile crisis when the Soviets placed nuclear weapons only 90 miles off the shore of Florida. A frightening, tension-filled showdown resulted as the US and USSR faced off in the biggest, most threatening confrontation ever -- a showdown that could have easily led to a nuclear holocaust. For 13 long days in October of 1962, the world held its breath wondering if this would be the start of . . .

World War III and Mutually Assured Destruction

No one really wanted war because both countries knew if they initiated a nuclear war, it would be impossible to destroy the enemy without also being destroyed themselves in the process.

Each side had a strategy designed to prevent an attack from the other. It was known as “Mutually Assured Destruction” (or “MAD”). MAD was truly a no-win situation, and some have speculated it might have actually prevented the Cold War from turning into an all-out nuclear war.

The USSR Found Another Way to Win

The Soviet Union’s goal was to dominate the world -- militarily, politically, and scientifically. But plagued by economic problems: poverty, scarcity, food shortages, and hours-long bread lines (think Venezuela today), the Soviets knew they couldn't hold a candle to the West's boundless economic growth and prosperity after WWII. Driven by a desperate desire to catch up with the West, the Soviets determined they would beat the West in another way:

On April 12, 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin became the first man ever to travel into outer space.

Determined to win more Olympic medals than any other nation, the USSR discovered an astonishing way to gain an advantage over all its rivals, including the USA.

by having the best performing (both mentally and physically), strongest, smartest and most productive people in the world including: the greatest athletes, military, scientists, doctors, astronauts, and even chess players.

With this goal in mind, long before the Russians started using banned substances at the Olympics, the USSR secretly hired a team of over 1200 of the highest-level Russian scientists, biologists and physicians to develop natural “tonic substances” that boosted the performance of their elite personnel while adhering to strict health guidelines. ** And these top scientists worked for decades on this secret project.

What did the Soviet Scientists Discover?

Over 1200 Soviet scientists conducted 3000+ studies on the effectiveness of adaptogens to increase human performance.

This "modern research" got an early start during World War II in an effort to increase stamina, endurance, and performance of Russian soldiers who were thrust into the worst fighting conditions on earth.(2)

The Soviet Academy of Science studied 4000 different plants and were the first in modern history to discover a small group of herbs that could greatly reduce stress and improve the mental and physical performance of their pilots, and submarine crews.

What these scientists found led to extensive research into the power of these unique plants that gave "adaptive properties" to both humans and animals that enabled them to flourish in the harshest and most stressful environments on earth.

But these amazing herbs were not new; they had actually been used for thousands of years by numerous other cultures!

Over 1200 Soviet scientists conducted 3000+ studies on the effectiveness of adaptogens to increase human performance.

In ancient China and other countries these herbs were given to soldiers right before going into battle to increase their stamina and endurance. In Siberia, they were used by hunters before dangerous hunts and travelers before embarking on long, difficult journeys. But “despite countless legends and thousands of years of use by people in China, Russia, Japan, Korea, and Europe, the benefits of these plants had never been scientifically studied.” (9)Until the Soviet scientists discovered them.

Their Research was Massive!

The Soviet research on this specialized group of herbs became so powerful and groundbreaking that they coined the term "adaptogen" -- which refers to protective plants that help the body adapt to and resist mental, physical and environmental stress.(1)(10)

After the war, this study of adaptogens opened up the vast field of biomedicinal research in the USSR. Studies were carried on in many secret research centers across Russia where scientists conducted research for the military, sports and space programs.

The Ministry of Defense conducted tests in the 1970s in a secret, sealed research city on the frigid plains of Siberia.(5)

Over the years, more than 3000 clinical trials and experimental studies on adaptogens were conducted ** yielding amazing discoveries.

Not only was research conducted on the elite of Soviet society (Olympic athletes, astronauts, political officers, scientists, doctors, pilots, elite military, etc.), it was also conducted on average working people, including factory workers, truck drivers, and mine workers . . . and produced startling results.**

Yet these discoveries remained a hidden secret for decades!

Forbidden to Share Their Discoveries with the World

The Soviet government wasn’t about to leak the secrets of increased human performance for the rest of the world to benefit from. They demanded the strictest secrecy on this carefully-guarded research, and researchers were under threat of imprisonment if they ever let the secrets out.

Because most of the 3000+ scientific studies were never translated from Russian into other languages, they were unknown for decades to other scientists around the world. When the USSR finally fell in the early 1990’s, much of the research was lost until recently being rediscovered.

Adaptogens Enabled Incredible Mental and Physical Results

Because of these well-researched and documented results, adaptogens became massively useful at the highest levels of performance. They were used in the Soviet space exploration program, Arctic expeditions, high-level athletic competitions including the Olympic Games, World Chess Competitions, Soviet nuclear programs and in many other highly demanding and stressful circumstances. (2)

Using adaptogens, the Soviet Union was able to:
  • Win an unprecedented 80 Gold and 195 total medals in the 1980 Olympics 
  • Championed the Space Race by being the first nation to send a man into space
  • Win an amazing ten back-to-back World Chess Championships
  • Pioneered many nuclear programs including harnessing nuclear energy for electricity and building the world’s first nuclear power plant
  • Accomplished many global-dominating achievements and scientific advances

Adaptogenic herbs were credited for much of the astounding performance of Soviet athletes in the 1980 and 1988 Olympic games.

Now these same powerful Adaptogenic herbs used by the Soviets and proven effective in over 3000 clinical and scientific studies are . . .
