Dr. Mehmet Oz interviews Chris Kilham (professor of ethnobotany at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and author of 13 books)...

"Rhodiola rosea is a plant native to Siberia that radically reduces cortisol levels in the blood, thereby reducing stress and enhancing sexual function, Chris says. According to Chris, dosages between 100 and 300 milligrams a day have been proven effective in human studies. Moreover, Chris says rhodiola rosea enhances brain function, mood, cardiovascular function and immune function, and boosts energy, stamina and endurance. "When you take it, you feel it, and you feel good," says Chris, who takes it every day. "I feel more energetic, more lively, more clear minded."

"When you look past the hype and talk to the experts, two herbs stand out as stars (rhodiola rosea and cordyceps sinensis) and another (panax ginseng) looks like a pretty good bet, too.

All are adaptogens, a class of natural substances with a unique ability to restore equilibrium throughout the body. They won’t give you a quick fix; because they affect many aspects of your body’s energy-producing system, it takes a while for the full effects to kick in. But once they do, the benefits can be substantial."

"Adaptogens are the name of the game,” says Julie Plunkett, a medical herbalist and certified nutritionist in San Diego. “They are nonspecific agents that prevent and reduce the damaging effects that stress has on the body.” Any physical activity out of the norm, such as doing your first 15-mile run, impacts the body, and these five herbs can help it cope.
