Enjoying the Chaos...
Let's talk about Adrenal Fatigue Fighter™. But could you give me twenty minutes? I just got a call - my toddler bit someone and they say I have to go and apologize to the kid's mother. Oh, but I have an appointment at twelve to get my oil changed. So maybe two? Oh, wait, I already have a meeting then. Can we pick up this discussion around three? I've got from 3:06-3:10 free, does that work for you? Bear with, just need to answer this text...
Ugh, do you ever just feel completely worn out? Like life is never going to slow down? I used to get so stressed and cranky - which of course was followed by mountains of guilt after I would unload on the people around me. Even if I managed to make it through the night without my kid waking me up with night terrors, I would still feel exhausted.
But you know what? Now, it's all good. I'm a mommy managing machine! Things are easier because these days I take RidgeCrest Herbals' Adrenal Fatigue Fighter™. With its powerful adaptogens designed to support my body's metabolic and adrenal systems for maximum energy without stimulants, I feel like I may just be able to hang in there until my next vacation without biting my mother-in-law's head off - no, Karla, I don't need to read your sleep training book, my kid is FINE. Ah, that vacation though - I need to start researching family activities near the hotel. My daughter has grown out of her swimsuit, so I need to add that to my shopping list. And I can't forget to call my brother and see if he will dog sit for us - I'd better order more Adrenal Fatigue Fighter™...
HERBS IN ADRENAL FATIGUE FIGHTER™
Eleuthero root was the first well-studied adaptogen and is responsible for the entire classification. An adaptogen is a substance that promotes the body's overall capacity to handle non-specific forms of stress. By helping the body find homeostasis, it supports the ability to respond to external forces that strain the body. It has been part of TCM since its foundation but was only recognized by the rest of the world in the 1960's thanks to the work of Russian scientists.
Asian Ginseng Root
For thousands of years, Asian ginseng was used in TCM to reinforce Qi to give energy to the exhausted. Differing from American ginseng, they are similar to each other but completely different from Siberian ginseng. Some studies have shown Asian Ginseng may help support immune function, while others show antioxidant properties to promote heart health, as well as benefits for mental alertness.
Known for its extraordinary adaptogenic properties including the ability to potentially help normalize and balance multiple human systems, this herb promotes healthy oxygen supply for the cells, potentially the body's immune system, protects against stress, and builds stamina.
Native to South America, Suma root is often used in teas. An excellent source of amino acids and trace minerals, this herb is believed to be an adaptogen, meaning that it may help support the body's ability to respond to stress.
First appearing in the original text of the Divine Husbandman, Astragalus root is one of the 50 core herbs in TCM. Adopted in western culture as a supplement, it is often used to aid sleep, boost energy, and promote a healthy libido. It is also often used to support effective urine flow, promote clear breathing, and help sustain a positive metabolism.
American Ginseng Root
Though part of TCM, American Ginseng Root was introduced to China by trade in the 18th century and therefore does not appear in the ancient texts. In modern time, several studies have indicated that American Ginseng may help support the body's ability to naturally inhibit stress-inducing hormones. American ginseng is different from Asian ginseng, which has many health benefits as well.
Ashwagandha Root Extract
An Ayurvedic herb, in Sanskrit Ashwagandha translates to the "smell of a horse," and is traditionally believed to impart the energy and vigor of a stallion to those who use it. Science has shown Ashwagandha to include alkaloids, choline, fatty acids, withanolides, and amino acids, which support a number of bodily systems. With over 200 scientific studies done, Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb often used to promote calm, support cognitive health, and help protect a healthy immune system.
Holy Basil Extract
This Ayurvedic herb is called "Tulsi" in Hindi, which translates to "the incomparable one." It was also often called an "elixir of life," and now we know it is an adaptogen, having properties that help support the body's overall ability to manage stress. Considered holy, it is often planted around Hindu shrines. It also makes a delicious cooking herb.
Availablend® Bioavailability Complex
Availablend® Bioavailability Complex is RidgeCrest Herbals' patented blend containing several ingredients that have been recognized for their digestive and bioavailability-supporting properties. It includes ginger root, black pepper, habanero pepper, and Sichuan pepper.*
*Clinical studies have not been done on Availablend® linking it to increased bioavailability.
Is Adrenal Fatigue Fighter™ safe to take with other herbs or medications?
Yes. Adrenal Fatigue Fighter™ is very safe with no known contraindications. It is safe to take with any other herb or medication.
Is Adrenal Fatigue Fighter™ safe to take while pregnant or nursing?
Yes. All the herbs in Adrenal Fatigue Fighter™ are mild, and none are contraindicated during pregnancy or nursing. If you are concerned about your specific situation, consult with your midwife or healthcare provider.
I read online someone complained of hot flashes while taking this product?
If you are already taking a multivitamin that contains B3, it is recommended to research the appropriate dosage for your weight and adjust your supplement intake accordingly - too much Vitamin B3 (niacin) can cause flushing.
Will ADR make me jittery or nervous?
No, our Adrenal Fatigue Fighter™ contains no stimulants that will cause nervousness, and some of the ingredients are actually calming in nature. However, it does contain several kinds of ginseng, a powerful tonic that promotes energy without being overstimulating. Many people do feel a subtle but noticeable increase in energy, stamina, alertness, mental focus, and concentration.
Will ADR keep me awake at night/prevent me from sleeping?
Because of the ginseng, some people find that taking our Adrenal Fatigue Fighter™ later in the evening can make it more difficult to fall asleep. We recommend not taking it after 6 pm. If you need additional assistance falling or staying asleep, consider our DreamOn™ Zen formula.
Is ADR habit-forming?
No, our Adrenal Fatigue Fighter™ cannot cause dependence.
Are there are any side effects of taking Adrenal Fatigue Fighter™? (Risks?)
No. Adrenal Fatigue Fighter™ has no known side effects and is made of gentle herbs that are not known to create any negative issues. However, as each individual is different if a reaction does occur, we ask you to contact our customer service department so we can track it.
I noticed your Adrenal Fatigue Fighter™ Formula and Anxiety Free™ have similar ingredients, which one is best for me?
Adrenal fatigue and anxiety are both caused or exacerbated by stress. Our formulas are designed to address two common ways your body may try to cope. We often tell people that a basic rule of thumb is to look at how you react to a stressful situation. If your reaction is to cry, you could benefit from our Anxiety Free™. If your reaction is to get angry, you need our Adrenal Fatigue Fighter™ formula. It is safe to take both together, but most people find one helps more than the other for their specific physiology.
You aren't going to lose weight by exercising every day and eating burgers every night, and yes I am speaking from experience. Herbs are the same way. They work better when you are taking other positive steps so you don't add to the stress you are trying to manage. So our products work most effectively when you take other positive steps to manage your life, like:
- Finding an exercise routine you enjoy, like underwater hockey
- Eating healthy foods like kohlrabi
- Getting enough sleep - how else are you supposed to subconsciously work through the anger you secretly harbor towards your mother?
- Making time for stress-reducing techniques such as meditation or prayer - don't be fooled, it's not just for tie-dyed, dreadlocked hippies. You may even find you enjoy the smell of incense.
- Taking time for yourself, especially if you are a caregiver. Seriously. This one is super important.
- Positive social engagement - this is scientifically proven to lower stress hormones. No man is an island. Except for the Isle of Man. So that saying really doesn't work and should probably go away.
