Used for thousands of years, eleutherococcus (Eleutherococcus senticosus (Rupr. et Maxim.) Maxim) is a powerful adaptogen that helps the body cope with stress.
Eleutherococcus, also known as Siberian ginseng, is a very effective natural product to fight against symptoms of asthenia (weakness and fatigue). Its adaptogenic attributes are due to eleutherosides within the roots of eleutherococcus: bioactive compounds with antioxidant, anti-fatigue, anti-stress and immunomodulatory properties.
Our eleutherococcus extract is standardised to contain 0.8% eleutherosides, guaranteeing optimum quality.
Eleutherococcus: Detailed information
Eleutherococcus: Description and origin
Eleutherococcus or Siberian ginseng, (Eleutherococcus senticosus (Rupr. & Maxim.) Maxim, Araliaceae family) is a shrub native to Korea, northern China, Japan and Siberia. Eleutherococcus can grow up to three metres high and its roots are long, woody and bendy1. Its flowers are yellowish (female flowers) and violet (male flowers) in colour2.
Eleutherococcus has been used in China for over 2,000 years in case of infections, to reduce fatigue and to strength the immune system3. Due to its anti-fatigue properties, eleutherococcus root is prized by inhabitants of Siberia and northern China4.
With properties that enhance performance and overall health in stressful situations, during the 1950s Russian scientists proposed eleutherococcus as an alternative to Korean ginseng1. Soviet astronauts also consumed eleutherococcus root to boost their strength and endurance, and to counteract the effects of zero gravity4.
The main active compounds of eleutherococcus root are eleutherosides (eleutheroside B, eleutheroside E etc.). It also contains phenylpropanoids, triterpene saponins, sterols, polysaccharides, flavonoids and glucans1, 5, 6.

Eleutherococcus: Usage, dosage

Adaptogens help the body to cope with stress and help its internal systems regain their equilibrium. Eleutherococcus is one of the plants considered adaptogenic and it has been claimed that eleutherococcus modifies physiological response to stress and helps the body to cope with it1. Its anti-stress (physical as well as mental) properties are backed up by numerous studies8, 9 and its effectiveness in relieving symptoms of burnout, or professional fatigue syndrome, are proven10.
The anti-fatigue attributes of eleutherococcus root mean it helps to prolong physical activity and improve recovery after exercise, by increasing the supply of oxygen to muscles6. It also decreases glycogenolysis and the production of lactic and pyruvic acid during exercise6, which helps to fight against the onset of fatigue.
