Adaptogenic herbs work to support your body's own homeostasis. When the body is properly balanced, its healing abilities and performance are optimized. This formula is designed to support mental clarity and focus, sustained energy, immune and hormone support, and restful sleep, and much more.† Why do I need an Adaptogen? Adaptogens support nonspecific resistance to biochemical and physical stressors, thereby improving vitality and well-being. Reviews suggest adaptogens like ginseng and ashwagandha have immunomodulating activity by affecting the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. Clinical studies have shown that these herbs may stimulate the immune system, improve mental and physical performance, reduce fatigue, support healthy glucose regulation, and improve overall quality of life. Featuring A Revolutionary Metabolized Ginseng- GS15-4 Through decades of consistent scientific leadership, the Korean ginseng manufacturer Ilhwa Co. Ltd., has developed the world’s most efficacious and balancing ginseng extract, GS15-4®. Ilhwa uses a proprietary process that incorporates all the best current science to produce a “21st Century Ginseng Extract”. First, Ilhwa uses white ginseng root that has not been peeled, as peeling removes the minor rootlets and hair rootlets that carry key bioactive compounds. Second, they use a proprietary low heat vacuum extraction of the whole unpeeled root, which maintains the vitamins, amino acid profile and organic germanium lost in the high heat steaming process used in traditional processing. Third, Ilhwa harvests the roots at the optimum time between the 4th and 5th year. In comparison, red ginseng extract available from most companies use the traditional 6 year harvested root. Finally and most importantly, Ilhwa uses a proprietary enzyme fermentation process to improve absorption. High-yield enzyme fermentation mimics the fermentation that occurs in the intestine to transform ginsenosides to an end-stage metabolite called compound K or IH-901. Compound K(IH-901) is what your body is reallyafter Compound K has been proposed to be the most bioavailable metabolite from colonic fermentation. Fermented ginseng extract containing this metabolite have been shown to have many adaptogenic qualities such as strong antioxidant, anti-stress, hepatoprotective, anti-allergy and anti-inflammatory activities as well as support healthy glucose and lipid regulation. 15 Times Increased Absorption In addition, GS15-4® has been clinically proven to provide 15 times increased absorption, 4 times faster absorption and 4 times more consistent absorption. In addition, the fermentation process also provides an improved taste profile compared to conventional ginseng extracts. Improved bioavailability means improved adaptogenic support for fatigue and stress.
