The power of age-old adaptogenic herbs
Siberian Rush is made from adaptogenic and other naturopathic herbs that have been used for centuries in traditional Russian medicine, including the Vikings!
How do they work? Well, adaptogenic herbs stimulate energy, stamina, concentration and boost immunity against a background of (read: resisting) stress, fatigue and particularly intolerance to mental exhaustion, according to research. Adaptogens are like an adrenalin hit, without the usual crash and burn that follows. Think of them like a weight session. When you need both focus, grit AND adrenalin-inducing strength working collaboratively.
It’s not just your workout performance that can benefit from adaptogens. Research shows adaptogenic herbs have a host of other benefits including general wellbeing, neuroprotective, anti-fatigue properties, anti-depressive effects and act as stimulant for the central nervous system.
Siberian Rush also hosts other powerful ingredients including bio effective Siberian pine extract, wild sea buckthorn and Siberian ginseng – all of which have long-standing credentials in both history and science labs. Take Siberian pine needles, which have been used by the Russians for centuries in both food and medicine as a source of vitamin C, used as a scurvy preventative and was utilised during the siege of Leningrad to feed the starving population. Studies show the extract contains a wide range of antioxidants, organic compounds and micro-nutrients.
Sea buckthorn berries have historically been known as ‘holy fruit’, and are rich in vitamins A, B1, B12, E, K, P and C. The berries are loaded with flavonoids, carotenoids, and antioxidants. Potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron and phosphorus are also present. Sea buckthorn oil could also be one of the only plant foods known to provide all four omega fatty acids — omega-3, omega-6, omega-7 and omega-9.
The health perks
Doctor V’s Siberian Rush is 100% natural energy - no artificial additives or preservatives. And the big sell? While some energy drinks use artificial herbs synthesised in a laboratory, Doctor V only uses wild, hand-picked berries and herbs. As for the caffeine hit, Doctor V only uses the minimum quantity of caffeine required to be classified as an energy drink under Australian food laws, and has almost half the amount of caffeine and half the sugar of other energy drink brands.
