This book explores the properties and health benefits of three important Adaptogen Herbs and introduces the reader to its research proven uses in medicine. The health claims made on Rhodiola rosea, Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus) and Jiaogulan (Gynostermma pentaphllum) are substantiated in detail by extensive scientific references. This book is not too technical for the average reader, but detailed enough for the medical practitioner interested in becoming acquainted with these herbs. The book details history, the role of herbs in maintaining health and fighting disease, bioactive components, typical doses, side effects and toxicity. This book remains a great reference on these three herbs. Dr. Saleeby was the founder of Vita SanusTM Formulations (Vita Sanus Nutraceuticals) (1998- 2006. Held the company until it was sold to Dr. Trevor Neil, DPM in 9/2006) With the publication of this book he has been called upon to formulate unique and exciting dietary supplements covering a range of uses from sports ergogenic aids to fertility formulas.

As chief formulator for Ovion BioPharma/ Pharlian Labs he put his knowledge to use in formulating a subfertility/infertility herbal cycle pulse product (2008-2009).
