Tremendous imbalance between stress and rest/relaxation has created a society of chronically anxious, fatigued, “stressed out” Americans. Recent clinical research has shown that stress can shorten telomeres, the protective nucleoproteins at the ends of chromosomes. Thus, stress can shorten life expectancy. Botanical and mycoceutical adaptogens have been clinically shown to relieve symptoms associated with stress, provide relief for anxiety, provide potent antioxidant protection, and have been shown in pre-clinical studies to prevent the shortening of telomeres, thus potentially lengthen life. In this webinar, Dr. Terry Shirvani will present in-depth information and clinical research on traditional adaptogens that support healthy neuroendocrine and HPA axis function, as well as enhance the activity of primary antioxidant enzymes and promote longevity.
