Stress as an influencing factor in the body

A stressful situation – the short-term, job challenge just as much as the prolonged worry of losing one’s job – can prompt the release of an abundance of stress hormones in the body. These, in turn, can cause various physiological effects: the heart beats faster, breathing accelerates. Tense muscles and beads of sweat on the forehead can be observed.

Such possible bodily responses to stress are often summarized as the “fight-or-flight” response. They are a fundamental survival mechanism that enables humans and other mammals to respond quickly to life-threatening situations. The coordinated and almost instantaneous release of the necessary hormones and the physical changes they cause allow the individual to fight off the threat in seconds or to get to safety as quickly as possible.

However, if the “fight or flight” hormones are released regularly and continuously, serious damage occurs in the body. It begins to overreact to stressors that are not life-threatening, such as traffic jams, constant work pressure, or recurring family difficulties. At worst, the “fight or flight” hormones remain permanently detectable in the blood count.

Over time, researchers have learned how and why these reactions occur. And they are getting a better understanding of the long-term effects of chronic stress on physical and mental health: Research suggests that chronic stress contributes to high blood pressure, promotes the formation of plaque and clogged arteries, and can even cause brain changes. These, in turn, can lead to anxiety, depression, andaddictive behaviors. Further research at least suggests that chronic stress may also contribute to obesity– through direct (increased food intake) or indirect (reduction in sleep and exercise) mechanisms.


Food supplements are not a substitute for a varied, balanced diet, fresh fruits and vegetables and a healthy lifestyle. Keep cool, dry and out of reach of children. Do not exceed recommended intake.




Withania somnifera


The plant originates from Africa and has long been used in folk medicine. The current cultivation areas are in India, Pakistan and Afghanistan. It is related to the ginseng known in our country.

Earlier use and folk medicine

This plant has a wide range of applications in traditional Indian medicine. It is used for insomnia, depression, impotence and also inflammation.

Ginseng root
Panax Ginseng


Ginseng comes from the mountain and forest regions of northern Korea, northeastern China, and southeastern Siberia. It has been used in traditional Chinese and Korean medicine for thousands of years. It was once considered more valuable than gold and was reserved for emperors, kings and high nobles. It did not come to Europe until the 17th century, when it was brought to Spain by Arab sailors.

Application in folk medicine

In folk medicine, ginseng has always been considered a panacea. It is used in states of exhaustion, for mental and physical revitalization, to calm and strengthen the immune system and for menopausal symptoms. Since the 20th century it has been recognized by traditional medicine as a medicinal plant. Studies have also shown antioxidant, neuroprotective, antitumor, antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory properties.

Gingkoblätter - Ginkgo biloba
Gingko leaves
Ginkgo biloba


The ginkgo tree originates from China. In the 11th century it found its way to Japan via Korea and was planted there as a temple tree. Later it was brought to Europe from Japan by Dutch sailors. It has been planted as an ornamental tree in Europe since the 18th century. The ginkgo is the national tree of China and was chosen as a memorial for environmental protection and peace and as the tree of the millennium by the German Board of Trustees.

Application in folk medicine

The ginkgo was not known in European folk medicine. In traditional Chinese medicine, on the other hand, it has a very high significance and is one of the most important plants of all. The seeds are used as a cough suppressant and against bladder weakness. In China, ginkgo fruit preserved in sesame oil is considered an effective remedy for tuberculosis. The leaves of the tree are traditionally used against asthma.

ROSENWURZ Rhodiola rosea
Rose root
Rhodiola rosea


A Greek physician named Dioscorides described the medicinal use of rose root in 77 AD. The Vikings also appreciated the plant as a stamina remedy. The famous botanist Leonard Fuchs described rose root in 1542 in his Latin herbal book. It grows in the northern regions of Europe, Asia and North America in the mountains and on damp cliffs.

Application in folk medicine

In folk medicine, rose root has been traditionally used for 3,000 years for mental illness, exhaustion, headaches, anemia, impotence, gastrointestinal disorders, infections and colds. Among the Norwegians, Rhodiola rosea was a popular food, but was also used in washing the hair.

DAMIANABLÄTTER Turnera diffusa
Damiana leaves
Turnera diffusa


The plant originates from Central America and enjoys a strong popularity among patients and doctors, especially in Mexico. It owes its name to the patron saint of pharmacists, St. Damian. The latter, together with his twin brother Cosma, is said to have treated the sick and lepers free of charge in the time of late antiquity.

Application in folk medicine

The plant was already used by the Mayans as an aphrodisiac and tonic. In the Mexican pharmacopoeia it is described as aphrodisiac, tonic and diuretic. Mexican doctors also prescribe it as a tonic for the brain, against states of exhaustion, nervous weakness and mild depression.

WERMUTKRAUT Artemisia absinthium
Artemisia absinthium


The plant belongs to the Artemisia species and has a very long tradition. The origin of the name Wermuts in German is not clearly documented. Maybe there are worm-like properties behind it? Wormwood was already known to the ancient Egyptians and after Roman chariot races, the winners received a vermouth potion on the Capitol.

Application in folk medicine

Traditionally, wormwood is considered to strengthen the stomach, stimulate appetite, diuretic and digestive. In folk medicine, the tea is used for digestive problems, liver and gall bladder disorders. There are also traditional uses for insect bites, ulcers, skin diseases and skin lichens.

TAIGAWURZEL Eleutherococcus senticosus
Taiga root
Eleutherococcus senticosus


Taiga root originated in Siberia and now grows in Eastern Russia, Korea, Japan and Eastern China. It is also called the “Siberian Ginseng” and is widely used, especially in the territory of the former Soviet Union.

Application in folk medicine

The medicinal plant known as Siberian ginseng has a long tradition in Chinese and Russian folk medicine. In northeastern China, the roots are used for bronchitis, heart ailments, rheumatism, and other conditions. In Russia, taiga root is used to strengthen the immune system and improve the quality of life. In the West, taiga root was apparently not yet known in the Middle Ages and early modern times.

MACA Lepidium meyenii
Lepidium meyenii


Maca has been cultivated for about 2000 years in the upper Peruvian Andes from an altitude of 4000 meters and is used as a food and medicinal plant. The plant is native to the regions of Moquegua and Puno. It is exposed to extreme climatic conditions there and is therefore enormously resistant. Maca is known in South America as the “Ginseng of the Andes” and was already used by the Incas as a food.

Application in folk medicine

Like many tuberous plants, maca contains extremely interesting nutrient combinations and concentrated secondary plant substances. For this reason, maca is classified in folk medicine as an adaptogenic plant, which also includes ginseng or shiitake. Adaptogenic plants, when ingested, can increase stress resistance. Maca has been known for a long time in folk medicine and is consulted for sex disorders, hormonal disorders and menstrual cramps. In addition, the plant is attributed aphrodisiac effects.

PASSIONSBLUMENKRAUT Passiflora incaranta
Passionflower herb
Passiflora incaranta


The homeland of pink, red-purple or white passion flowers is Central, North and South America. In the southeastern United States, the edible fruits are known as “maypop.”

Application in folk medicine

European immigrants to the United States used the tea as a sedative for nervous conditions and insomnia. As early as 1787, the German naturalist Schoepf described the use of the plant as a remedy for epilepsy in old age. Other writings from the 19th century suggest a wide range of effects, including as a nerve sedative and tonic, as an antispasmodic, and as a sleep aid.
