Eleuthero is a widely studied adaptogenic herb boasting more scientific studies than any other herb.  In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it was used to prevent colds, flu, and other respiratory infections. Beyond that, it strives to protect us against the negative effects of stress in general.  As Donald Yance writes in  his book, Adaptogens in Medical Herbalism, "more so than any other adaptogenic agent [eleuthero] displays a normalizing effect regardless of physiological abnormalities."  Eleuthero supports homeostasis - helping to keep the systems of the body functioning within normal parameters.  It can assist, for example, in normalizing blood pressure and blood sugar levels. 

Much is known about this herb and its healthy effects upon the body.
