People generally have much interest in health promotion. Regular physical work, physical exercise and balanced diet are the most effective way to maintain and promote healthy body and mind. For thousands of years, people have used many kinds of plant and animal based products as tonic, to improve health, strength, physical endurance and sex life. Possibly one of the most famous of such product is the Ginseng root, which has been used in China over 4000 years as food, medicine, sexual stimulant and as a means to enhance physical endurance, strength and recovery from illness. By the same way, the American Indians have used the American Ginseng root, a close relative to the Asian Ginseng, as a tonic to improve health and physical endurance. And in India there are large amounts of plant and animal based products, which have been used for thousands of years as Rasayana drugs, which increase physical and mental performance. Plant and animal based drugs and compounds, which increase human body resistance against physical and mental stress, are called adaptogens. The concept adaptogen was first introduced by the Russian pharmacologist A.V. Lazarev year 1947. Now adaptogens are specified as metabolic regulators, which increase the ability of organism to adapt to changing environmental factors and to avoid damage from such factors. These environmental factors can be such as cold stress, hypoxia, endurance sport, high ambient temperature, mental stress etc. The repeated administration of adaptogens gives rise to stress-protective effect in analogous manner to that produced by repeated physical exercise. Physical stress, such as hard endurance or strength training in sport, normally causes fatigue, increases serum stress hormone Cortisol concentrations, increase blood lactic acid and ammonia concentration, but decreases muscle and liver glycogen contents, which thus cause a rapid body fatigue and loss of muscle strength and endurance capacity. But adaptogens tend to increase physical endurance, muscle strength and muscle and liver glycogen content, but at the same time they tend to decrease the catabolic hormone Cortisol concentration and increase the anabolic hormone concentrations, such as Testosterone and Growth hormone. There exists astonishing number of natural products, such as herbs, foods, food compounds and pure natural compound, which have a strong adaptogenic effect, and improve both physical and mental performance. This book introduces over 230 different herbs, foods, spice and natural compounds, which increase physical endurance, strength, anabolic hormones such as Testosterone and Growth hormone GH, and sex life, and at the same time decrease stress related hormones such as Cortisol and Prolactin. To see positive effects when using adaptogens, they are normally used daily, for at least several weeks or months, with enough large daily doses. It takes time to see the effect of adaptogens against stress, and usually there is a close dose response. However, when used against acute stress, the doses have to relatively high, compared to doses, when used for several weeks or months. This book is based strictly on scientific experiments made with human volunteers and experimental animals, and all the several hundreds of research references can be seen on the reference list.
