Hi Hi..!!! Today we will talk about higher plant-based nutritional supplements called Adaptogens, as part of regenerative medicine, but the first thing we are going to clarify is that it is an adaptogen. An adaptogen is a natural substance present in some plants that allows our body to adapt to the requirements of each moment, especially when we are less able to do so. Our body is a perfect machine and a master of adaptation, since man is a being that lives in the most varied climatic conditions, stress, food availability, social conditions, etc. But despite having this great capacity, it is inevitable that we live periods that exceed us and that demand a greater effort from us, either because circumstances change or because the passage of time means that we do not have the same response capacity and what Before it was easily manageable, now it is a great effort. Old age causes many of these bodily imbalances and deteriorations that if we do not use this type of herbal therapy we precipitate into chronic degenerative diseases. The adaptogen gives us the necessary stimulus for the body to regenerate itself. In other words, it produces an energizing and hormonal rejuvenation effect. Adaptogenic plants are considered superior plants and have the following benefits: Reduce reactions to stress, increasing tolerance Prevent exhaustion phase, anti-fatigue Prevent long-term stress Improve attention and mental stamina Prevent aging-related disorders · Nootropic (nutritional supplements or smart and functional foods that elevate certain human mental functions, memory stimulants and cognitive enhancers).
The mechanism of action of adaptogenic plants is not clear, since adaptogenic substances do not act by supplementing something that is lacking in our body, but by stimulating the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis so that our body synthesizes what it needs. Although their routes of action are not fully known, they are known to act on molecular mechanisms such as molecular protectants, nitric oxide, cortisol, neuropeptides, etc. That is to say, they produce their effect not because they provide steroid hormones as is often assumed, but because they produce a stimulus so that both men and women independently balance their hormonal system if they need it. This is proven because adaptogenic plants have an effect on the same person in very different situations; for example, they can help a woman to recover after childbirth, or in a situation of fatigue and can also help that same woman years later, alleviating the symptoms of her menopause. They are very different hormonal situations and yet an adaptogen provides balance in all these situations. Its effect on many systems of our body is recognized, the immunostimulating effect being important, so it is considered of interest in adjuvant cancer therapy and even as protection against toxicity caused by drugs, including chemotherapeutic agents such as cisplatin. They are plants that contribute to the EIO (Energy, Biological Intelligence and Organization) Triangle of health. There are adaptogenic plants that provide benefits for each vertex of the health triangle. Here I will describe some of them: Energy: Maca (Lepidium Meyenii): Nutritional supplement, helps with infertility and lack of sexual desire. White Korean Ginseng (Panax Ginseng): has energizing, antioxidant, cardiovascular activity, hematopoietic effect (tissue responsible for the production of blood cells), anti-inflammatory, improves cellular immunity, hypoglycemic action, neurostimulating action, etc.
Biological Intelligence: Arctic Root (Rhodiola Rosea): Lowers blood pressure, improves myocardial resistance to arrhythmias and ischemic or free radical damage, improves fatigue, reduces stress levels, helps with insomnia, etc. Echinacea: Prevention of colds, antibacterial, antiparasitic, antifungal action, helps fight infections. Organization: Ginkgo Biloba: It has anti-oxidant properties, increases blood flow to the brain, thus preventing diseases such as Alzheimer's, senile dementia, it is used for treatments of vertigo, tinnitus of vascular origin, etc. Ginger (zingiber Officinalis): Natural anti-inflammatory, helps with vertigo, heartburn, dyspepsia, flatulence and colic, etc. There are thousands of adaptogens for each situation and condition that you want to handle, we must remember that nature is intelligent and very knew, why fill your body with chemicals if we can try it first with the natural. I do want to emphasize that we should always go to the doctor and be advised by him, I recommend the doctors of the Center for Regenerative Medicine who work and know innovative therapies and use traditional medicine, natural and advanced medicine to give all the existing alternatives to your patients.
