Q. Why is stress management is crucial to wellness?
A. Everyone feels stressed from time to time. Although a little stress occasionally is not something to be concerned about. However, prolonged exposure to chronic stress can trigger or exacerbate many serious health problems, this includes:
- Emotional distress, such as depression, anxiety, headache and insomnia
- Cardiovascular problems, including high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, heart attack and stroke
- Sexual dysfunction, such as loss of sexual desire in men and women and erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation in men
- Gastrointestinal disorders, including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), gastritis, ulcerative colitis
- Obesity and other eating disorders
- Skin and hair issues, such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and hair loss
- Menstrual problems
As chronic stress can increase the risk for long-term health issues, managing stress via multiple approaches, including consuming good quality adaptogen supplement is crucial to maintain overall body wellness.
Q. What is AdaptWell?
A. AdaptWell is a powerful vegan formula, developed with extracts of Ashwagandha and Rhodiola rosea. This proprietary formula is beneficial for anyone who has difficulty coping with emotional distress as well as physical and mental fatigue. Ashwagandha is an herb that has been used as an Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years; while Rhodiola has been used in traditional medicine in Russia and Scandinavian countries for centuries. Well known to be powerful adaptogens, the Ashwagandha and Rhodiola rosea in AdaptWell synergistically help strengthen the body’s natural resistance and adaptation to stress and anxiety, allowing one to cope better during stressful times. In addition, AdaptWell helps reduce stress-induced high blood pressure, increase energy levels, fight fatigue and improve physical and mental performance during mentally stressful and physically strenuous situations.
Q. What makes AdaptWell superior to other adaptogen supplements?
A. Typical adaptogen supplements usually contain a single ingredient. For instance, only Ashwagandha with 2.5% withanolides (the major biologically active constituents of Ashwagandha leaves believed to attribute to a majority of the biological functions of Ashwagandha). In comparison, AdaptWell is formulated with 2 potent ingredients, Aswagandha and Rhodiola rosea, in functional dosage to deliver exceptional potency. Ashwagandha is standardised to contain 7% Withanolides, while Rhodiola rosea is standardised to contain >5% rosavins, >3% rosavin and >1% salidroside. The synergistic effects of Ashwagandha and Rhodiola maximise the efficacy of AdaptWell in stress management and energy boosting. In addition, AdaptWell is fortified with BioPerine® black pepper extract, which remarkably increases the absorption and bioavailability of Ashwagandha and Rhodiola rosea. With gluten-free, plant-sourced ingredients and no added colouring, flavouring and preservatives, AdaptWell is safe and highly recommended for anyone, including vegetarians for effective stress management.
Q. How does AdaptWell help people with chronic stress to address their high blood pressure?
A. When one is under stress, the adrenal glands release stress hormones – adrenaline and cortisol into the bloodstream which cause the heart to beat faster heart and blood vessels to narrow, resulting in a temporary spike in the blood pressure. When the stress trigger is resolved, the hormone levels return to normal and the blood pressure and heart rate return to baseline levels. However, chronic or long-term stress causes the stress hormone levels to be persistently high, leading to high blood pressure. AdaptWell helps reduce the stress and reduce stress-induced high blood pressure by lowering adrenaline and cortisol levels.
Q. Who is AdaptWell recommended for?
A. AdaptWell is highly recommended for anyone who is constantly under stress or other emotional distress, easily stressed, agitated or excitable, anxious, depressed, prone to panic attacks or feeling down and overwhelmed. It is also suitable for anyone with low energy level or poor cognitive function. Furthermore, AdaptWell is beneficial in alleviating stress-induced conditions, such as high blood pressure, insomnia, low libido, poor concentration, difficulty relaxing, muscle ache or tension. Other benefits for overall wellness include healthy cholesterol, triglyceride and glucose levels as well as muscle mass and strength support and reproductive health support for men and women.
Q. I am constantly under stress and feel overwhelmed. How long should I take AdaptWell before I can feel relieved?
A. The results may vary between individuals. In general, one can feel immediate relief on the day of intake. Nonetheless, AdaptWell is highly recommended for long-term consumption, especially for those who are constantly under stress.
Q. What is the recommended dosage for AdaptWell?
A. The recommended dosage is one veggie capsule daily, preferably taken in the morning, with or without food. For those under immense stress can take 2 capsules a day, to be consumed together or separately.

Stress and anxiety are natural physical and mental responses to life’s difficult experiences. Stress is an external tension, the body’s reaction when met with challenges, while anxiety is an emotional state of fear and dread, developed over prolonged exposure to stress.
Stress is inevitable. In short-term circumstances, these emotional responses help the body to cope with potentially serious situations. Nonetheless, persistent and high levels of stress and anxiety could take a toll on health, physically and mentally.
• Irritability or short-fused
• Difficulty concentrating & relaxing
• Eating more or less than usual
• Insomnia or changes in sleeping habits
• Muscle aches, pains or tension
• Diarrhoea or constipation
• Feelings of nausea or dizziness
• Loss of libido
In addition to stress, the middle-aged and the elderly also experience anxiety more frequently due to changes in the brain and nervous system as a result of ageing. Stressful events in their lives could trigger anxiety.
Once the perceived stressors have been resolved, the hormones return to the normal levels, heart rate and blood pressure also return to baseline levels and other bodily systems resume their regular activities.
If you are stressed all the time and always in high gear, your body would be continually pumping cortisol and adrenaline. It is very bad for your body as long-term activation of stress-response system and overexposure to stress hormones could disrupt almost all your body’s processes. This could increase your risk of developing many health problems.
Insulin is a hormone that the pancreas makes to help regulate or reduce blood glucose levels in the blood. Under a stressful circumstance, the insulin levels decrease, so glucose levels remain high in the bloodstream; the cells cannot perform optimally as they do not get the glucose they need.
Elevated levels of cortisol produced during stressful condition suppress the immune system. This makes one more susceptible to the common cold, cold sores and contagious ailments. High stress also leads to anxiety, depression and higher levels of inflammation. Prolonged high-level inflammation due to chronic stress could bring about an overworked immune system that is incapable of defending the body efficiently.
When the body reacts to stress, other less critical functions such as digestion will be slowed or temporarily disrupted, so that the body can focus all its energy to ‘confront’ a perceived threat. Besides, stress can weaken the intestinal barrier that protects the body from food-related bacteria.
Consequently, stress would cause abdominal pain and other symptoms of functional gastrointestinal disorders. Unsurprisingly, ulcers usually develop during stressful times and people with gastrointestinal issues such as colitis or irritable bowel syndrome, report better symptom control when their stress is well managed.
Persistent narrowing of arteries and high blood pressure as a result of chronic stress could cause damage to the blood vessels and plaque build-up in the arteries which subsequently increase the risk of a heart attack or stroke.
Stress and anxiety affect us in a number of ways — physically, mentally and emotionally and in varying intensities. Hence, keeping these emotional distress at a comfortable and manageable level is the key to physical and mental well-being.
Excessive amounts of cortisol (stress hormone) can affect the normal biochemical functioning of the male reproductive system. Chronic stress or prolonged stress can affect testosterone production, resulting in a decline in libido which can even lead to erectile dysfunction or impotence.

Stress can Impact Sex Drive!
When stress is chronic, the body uses sex hormones to meet the increased demands for higher cortisol production (stress hormone), this decreases the interest in sex. A troubled mind also impacts mood, leading to anxiety which contributes to a dip in libido.
An all-natural, potent adrenal support, formulated to help you cope with emotional distress and physical and mental fatigue. It comprises two powerful adaptogens – Ashwagandha extract and Rhodiola rosea extract, which are thoughtfully curated for their powerful healing properties. Their synergistic effects help to strengthen your body’s natural resistance and adaptation to stress; enabling you to cope well and radiate vigour and vitality.
Ashwagandha, also known as the “Indian ginseng” or Withania somnifera, is a herb that is native to Asia and Africa. For thousands of years, this ancient medicinal herb had been used in traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine as an alternative medicine for natural healing.
It is classified as an adaptogen, a natural substance that helps the body better adapt to and manage stress by reducing adrenaline and cortisol (stress hormone) levels. Besides stress, Ashwagandha is also commonly used to fight symptoms of anxiety and depression, increase energy levels, improve concentration and manage blood sugar levels. Many of the health benefits of Ashwagandha are attributed to its high concentration of withanolides, an active compound in Ashwagandha.
Rhodiola or scientifically, Rhodiola rosea, is commonly called the ‘arctic root’ or ‘golden root’. It is a perennial plant which grows in cold regions around the world, such as Central Asia, Europe and the Arctic. The use of Rhodiola as a medicine in the Arctic and Northern Europe has long been recorded in the centuries-old history. In fact, the Russians and Scandinavians had been treating mental health problems such as anxiety, depression and fatigue with rhodiola.
Rhodiola extracts may protect cells against against damage, help regulate heartbeat and memory improvement. It is an adaptogen which helps the body adapt and cope with physical, chemical and environmental stress. Rhodiola roots is rich with over 140 ingredients, with rosavin and salidroside being the most potent compounds that contribute to the beneficial effects of this plant.
BioPerine® Black Pepper Extract is a patented extract of black pepper fruits (Piper nigrum) with standardised 95% piperine. Its key function is to enhance the bioavailability of the ingredients it is co-administered with. BioPerine® is able to increase the absorption of those nutrients by at least 30%.
Ashwagandha and Rhodiola rosea are adaptogens, they help the body balance and modulate hormones. During fasting, there is an increase in epinephrine and adrenaline which make a person feel shaky and anxious. Ashwagandha helps to reduce the hormones and anxiety. It is also beneficial in improving focus during the fasting period.
Rhodiola rosea helps with balancing too. On top of this, it also enhances perfomance by increasing the oxygen-carrying capacity of certain cells, thereby creating more energy and more oxygen to improve performance. Additionally, its active compound, Rosavin, increases fat-burning during fasting. Hence, by including AdaptWell into your daily routine, you can expect greater results from your intermittent fasting.
When the body is under intense stress, stress hormones, adrenaline and cortisol are released. These causes the heart to beat faster and blood vessels to narrow, which results in a temporary spike in the blood pressure. The two adaptogens of AdaptWell help the body to modulate and lower the hormones produced, thereby relieving stress and lower the stress-induced high blood pressure.
