᫒ Chapter 5 ADAPTOGENS AND THE HEALING RESPONSE From Surviving to Thriving All living organisms including animals, plants, and even bacteria survive because of their innate or acquired abilities to respond appropriately to the ever changing environment Remarkably, many compounds that are vital to a plants ability to adapt also help humans adapt to life stressors through an ancient and beneficial relationship that we are just beginning to understand Adaptation can be broadly classified into two categories functional adaptation, which helps the organism to survive, and reproductive adaptation, which ensures the survival of the organisms genetic material an organism cannot be considered successful if its type goes extinct Although the process of adaptation may be easier to observe in animals, adaptation is essential for all living things Plants have undergone adaptation since they first appeared on Earth, and their survival strategies are exemplified by their amazing variability of adaptive changes One easily observable example is the changing colors of leaves in the fall Chlorophyll, the green pigment responsible for photosynthesis, disappears as the days grow shorter This allows an array of flavonoids, which are always present in the leaves, to appear Flavonoids give leaves their beautiful fall colors But these colors provide than just beauty Plants produce these compounds as an adaptive measure as sunlight diminishes and the weather cools to aid in the storage of nutrients and to ward off damaging insects These strategies are an illustration of adaptation that originates in organically coded information within the organism What is most remarkable is that this plant based information can be directly communicated to the human genome For example, instead of having to live on the frozen tundra in order to increase our capacity for hardiness, adaptive capacity can be conveyed directly to us through the use of appropriate botanical medicines specifically, by a unique class of herbs known as adaptogens Revered in traditional medical systems, these herbs are often referred to as elite, or kingly, because they enhance ones inner vitality, encourage a state of balance, and increase endurance In recent history Soviet researcher Dr Israel Brekhman gave this category of plants the name adaptogens for their unique ability to help the organism adapt to the changing conditions of life ADAPTOGENS DEFINED The core essence of adaptogens is that they combat the negative effects of stress and improve resistance, thereby improving our health and well being Essentially, adaptogens help us to live with greater mental and physical endurance and vitality, while mitigating the cost of stressors and building our reserves through enhancing our regenerative anabolic capacities An adaptogenic herb is traditionally regarded as one that meets the classical definition as described by Brekhman Adaptogens are safe with no significant side effects or contraindications Adaptogens have a general, nonspecific action to improve resistance to stress Adaptogens have a balancing, normalizing effect on body functions, regardless of the origin of disruption or the direction of the homeostatic disturbance In my clinical practice I distinguish three main categories of adaptogens and use herbs from each of these categories in all of my formulations to achieve the best possible results Primary adaptogens Meet the classical definition of adaptogens Secondary adaptogens Meet most of the traditional criteria or have met all of the criteria but lack sufficient scientific validation Adaptogen companions May not meet all of the traditional criteria but play a supporting role by enhancing the HPA axis and anabolic metabolism Primary Adaptogens Primary adaptogens meet very specific criteria, have solid scientific research validating their use as adaptogens, enhance the general resistance of the entire body, act in a nonspecific manner, and have a normalizing effect against all forms of stress The activity of primary adaptogens is focused on metabolic regulation through their proven effects on the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal HPA axis during stress adaptation responses They have an ability to maintain or restore homeostasis and allostasis and encourage anabolic restoration Primary adaptogens enable better response and recovery because they help to smooth out the highs and lows of the neuroendocrine stress response by regulating and normalizing the hormones involved Primary adaptogens strengthen all systems, promote optimal response and hasten recovery of function, and help to regulate energy use by enhancing cellular energy transfer Adaptogens enable us to make efficient use of oxygen, glucose, lipids, and proteins Some specific positive results of the HPA regulation provided by primary adaptogens include the following Increasing and modulating the flow of energy throughout the day Decreasing feelings of stress Increasing endurance Supporting mental alertness Promoting deep, restful sleep Secondary Adaptogens I classify herbs as secondary adaptogens when they meet most, but not all, of the criteria of primary adaptogens Although secondary adaptogens demonstrate some normalizing activity, especially of the immune, nervous, and hormonal systems, they may not directly support the HPA axis The protective effects of secondary adaptogens come with regular use when combined with primary adaptogens Secondary adaptogens share the following attributes Their normalizing activity focuses on the immune, nervous, or endocrine systems Their activity may not directly support the HPA axis While they may meet some, or most, of the qualifications of primary adaptogens, they have yet to be studied extensively Many of these plants are rich in fatty acids, sterols, and phenolic compounds Many of these plants enhance anabolic metabolism Herbal Adaptogen Companions While this third group of herbs has demonstrated enormous general health benefits similar to those of primary and secondary adaptogens, they do not meet the criteria to be officially termed adaptogens Thus, I call them adaptogen companions, because their actions enhance or synergize the effects of primary and secondary adaptogens An herb such as green tea falls under this classification I also include specific nutritional agents in this classification This elite group of herbs and nutritional compounds is used in a supporting role to potentiate primary herbs, harmonize formulations, and, most often, to add high nutritive value When combined with primary and secondary adaptogens they will significantly increase life span and quality of life Elderberry Sambucus nigra, Sambucus spp Plant family Caprifoliaceae Honeysuckle Family Other common names Elder flower, elder leaf Parts used Leaves, flowers, berries, inner bark OVERVIEW AND AUTHORS COMMENTARY Elderberry Sambucus spp , as well as elder flower and leaf, grow all over the North American Northwest and have long been used in traditional Western medicine Elder flower and leaf are in classic diaphoretic teas, and together with elderberry are ingredients in my Flew Away formula, a classic formula for colds and flu Elderberry is also in Vital Adapt, my general adaptogenic tonic formula Elderberry is used as a general nutritive tonic, providing a high concentration of flavonoids, as well as an immune tonic to prevent and alleviate many cold and flu symptoms including runny nose, cough, sore throat, fever, and muscle pain Elderberry is especially great for children in the fall in winter as an overall immune tonic Therapeutic Dosing Range Fluid extract 1 1 2 5 ml 1 2 times daily Standardized Extract 5% Total Flavonoids 500 2000 mg daily Tea may be mixed with leaf and flower 2 6 caps daily Safety Profile There are no known adverse reactions to elderberry Habitat and Cultivation The black or common elder is a small tree or shrub with dark purple berries and white to light yellow flowers It blooms in June and July, and the berries mature in September and October The flowers, berries, and inner bark are used as medicine S nigra is indigenous to Europe, growing in conditions similar to those of the American variety In the United States, it grows in low, damp grounds, thickets, and waste places The two plants possess similar medicinal properties Key Constituents The berries are rich in vitamin C and a wide range of important flavonoids, including quercetin and anthocyanins, which are believed to account for the therapeutic effects The leaf and flowers contain flavonoids, such as anthocyanins, carotenoids, essential oil, mucilage, and tannins Among individual phenolic compounds are quercetin and kaempferol compounds, phenolic acids, and anthocyanins TRADITIONAL USE Elderberries have long been used as food, particularly in the dried form Elderberry wine, pie, and lemonade are some of the popular ways to prepare this plant The leaves were touted to be pain relieving and to promote healing of injuries when applied as a poultice Native Americans used the plant to treat infections, coughs, and skin conditions In a warm infusion, elder flowers are diaphoretic and gently stimulating In cold infusion, they are diuretic, alterative, and cooling The flowers and expressed juice of the berries have been beneficially employed in scrofula, cutaneous diseases, syphilis, rheumatism, and so forth The inner bark of Sambucus nigra is an emetic and cathartic and has been successfully used to treat epilepsy MODERN RESEARCH Elderberry extract possesses significant antioxidant activity and has been shown to impair angiogenesis Nonspecific Immune Enhancement Elderberries boost cytokine production A unique protein found in elderberry acts as a messenger regulating immune response Elderberry is a potent viral inhibitor Its anti influenza ability is much researched in both Israel and Switzerland Elderberry extract has also been shown to inhibit herpes virus and HIV in cell culture The H1N1 inhibition activities of the elderberry flavonoids compare favorably to the known anti influenza activities of Oseltamivir Tamiflu 0.32 microM and Amantadine 27 microM The anthocyanins present in elderberries protect vascular epithelial cells against oxidative insult, preventing vascular disease Elderberry has shown to reduce LDL cholesterol and atherosclerosis Elderberry could improve bone properties by inhibiting the process of bone resorption and stimulating the process of bone formation.Ancient wisdom tells us that adaptogens are the Imperial Herbs, the Jewels in the Golden Cabinet that nourish, replenish, rejuvenate, restore, and promote longevity and superior quality of
