Lecture 2: Adaptogens – what they are and how they affect mental functions and mood, research data, interesting facts.

In the 1950s, the Russian pharmacologist and doctor of holistic medicine Breckhman founded his own school of adaptogens, explaining the secrets of eastern medicines (i.e. ginseng, citrine, rhodiola). He and his collaborator Dardymov developed the definition of an adaptogen. According to them, an adapotogen is a substance mainly of natural origin, which must be harmless and may cause minimal changes in the mental functions of the body, must act non-specifically and have normalizing properties. Currently, it is believed that adaptogenic plants are those that have a normalizing effect on the human system, but not overstimulating or blocking its normal functions, but rather acting as a tonic. Plant adaptogens strengthen the body’s ability to cope with stress by supporting the proper functions of the body from a biological and physiological point of view. The properties of adaptogens, i.e. immunomodulating, hepatoprotective, increasing energy, supporting the work of the brain and mental clarity, bring significant benefits to the body by maintaining proper homeostasis, which translates into the possibility of using adaptogens in the broadly understood prevention of civilization diseases.

The lecture “How Supplements and Adaptogens Affect the Brain and Mental Functions” will take place on Saturday, from 16:00 to 17:00.
