Many factors influence how the body responds to life’s challenges. Adaptogens are substances that mobilize internal energy reserves, attempts to prevent the body from overreacting to stress and thus avoiding, reducing, or delaying the burnout that follows periods of extreme stress. True adaptogens act by extending the phase of resistance, a state in which the body’s capacities are optimally mobilized to adapt to new challenges.
AOR’s Ortho-Adapt contains a carefully formulated blend of vitamins, nutrients and herbs with adaptogenic properties.* These include Pantethine (an active co-enzyme form of vitamin B5), Vitamin C, Rhodiola, Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra), Siberian “ginseng” (Eleutherococcus senticosus), and adrenal glandulars, providing support for the adrenal glands, which potentially help with the body’s stress coping abilities.*
