Health Alert: How The Adaptogen, Eleuthero, Stops Stress From Sabotaging The Brain

Holistic physician Dr. Michael E. Rosenbaum, MD, explains how stress can undermine people's ability to manage the challenges in their lives. He also offers specific advice on how to overcome this problem.

Torrance, CA (I-Newswire) February 25, 2014 - These days, stress is an integral part of people's lives. Yet, most people are not consciously aware of one of stress' biggest impact on the quality of life. Stress sabotages people's mental performance.

"Essentially, stress makes us stupid," acknowledges holistic physician, Dr. Michael E. Rosenbaum. "And ironically, when we're under pressure, we can least afford to lose our brain power. Right now, with the economy in a slump, my patients tell me they constantly feel the pressure to get more done . . . to shine when it comes to work. And when you're under pressure, you're more likely to fumble, draw a blank or foul up all together."

As researchers from the State University of New York in Buffalo have shown, stress interferes with the activity in the prefrontal cortex of the brain. This part of the brain allows people to make executive decisions, think flexibly and learn.

And it gets worse . . . Brain researcher Dr. Bruce McEwen has demonstrated the neural fibers of a stressed brain are shrunken, with hardly any branches to facilitate communication. The fibers in healthy brains are sturdy and thickly branched.

The difference between the two is dramatic. It's like looking at a dead tree and one that was healthy and thriving with lots of new growth and small branches. McEwen noted that the part of the brain most affected by stress is the hippocampus. This is where learning and memory takes place.

Stress literally shrinks your brain.

"For my patients who feel under the gun," says Dr. Rosenbaum, "I regularly recommend using the herbal adaptogen, eleuthero. Eleuthero is an extremely safe, well-researched and effective herb. Eleuthero has a long track record of boosting mental performance - especially when you're under stress!"

In tests conducted in the 1960's, operators who took the adaptogen, eleuthero, had faster telegraphing times and fewer mistakes. Tests on proofreaders found the same thing.

No less than 35 clinical studies have shown eleuthero improves physical and mental performance under stressful conditions.
Eleuthero seems to:

1. speed up reaction time;
2. improve learning and memory; and
3. sharpen vision and strengthen hearing.

Research on Olympic athletes, astronauts, explorers, divers, sailors, factory workers, pilots, train operators and miners all showed eleuthero allowed them to work harder and better longer. It's a favorite among Japanese businessmen who work 12-hour days in a tough and competitive work environment.

Researchers who were studying eleuthero in a 2010 study along with two other adaptogens think part of eleuthero's power is its ability to protect the brain from the damaging effects of stress. Preliminary research indicates eleuthero might stimulate the production of two special proteins - Neuropeptide 7 and Hsp72. These two proteins seem to help protect brain cells when they are under stress.

Eleuthero has also been shown to help make it easier for cells to access nutrition and oxygen while helping cells get rid of waste. For the cells of a stressed brain, this is like a refreshing drink of water. By nourishing brain cells and keeping them free of junk, eleuthero may help the brain perform at a higher clip when needed.

Dr. Rosenbaum concludes, "I always remind my patients, eleuthero won't solve your problems like magic. It can't give you skills or knowledge you don't have. But it can give you the power necessary to put these to use effectively. Eleuthero can give you the mental edge you require to navigate the challenges you face today - survive them - and thrive."
