Stress is a normal and healthy response to stimulus; however, prolonged periods of stress can be detrimental to human health.
A certain level of stress is essential to our ability to function and adapt, but the distress caused by excessive or prolonged stress can affect our physical wellbeing, performance and social
interactions, ultimately impacting upon our quality and enjoyment of life.
Far from an exclusively modern condition, traditional medicinal practices recognise that certain botanicals exhibit properties that can give us the endurance and resources to cope with stressful incidents and offer protection from their potentially debilitating effects.
We have long been interested in the benefits of traditional medicines. Our research in this area led us to create Well-Being, a herbal blend which harnesses the wisdom of traditional knowledge by promoting health through the replenishment of chi, or vital essence.
In Well-Being, the strengthening and tonic effects of Astragalus membranaceus have been combined with the invigorating benefits of Withania somnifera (ashwagandha) and the support of Eleutherococcus senticosus (Siberian ginseng), Polygonatom officinale and the goji berry (Lycium barbarum), used in traditional healing practices for thousands of years.
In traditional terminology, the herbs in this formula invigorate qi, elevate yang and nourish yin. They specifically affect the yin aspect of qi, to replenish the vital essence consumed in everyday biological processes. This enhances an individual’s ability to accommodate the stresses affecting the body.
Together, they create a potent botanical formula designed to minimise the effects of stress whilst enhancing feelings of health and wellbeing.led us to create Well-Being, a herbal blend which harnesses the wisdom of traditional knowledge by promoting health through the replenishment of chi, or vital essence.
