Bumper Crop O' Herb
Well it took a fair amount of persuading but at the advice of a trusted friend, I grew a crop this year. The harvest was abundant and I am proud to say particularly lively! Please ask for you free, 1/8 Oz. while at the Bike Swap! Eleuthero, commonly called Siberian ginseng, was discovered in the 1950s by Russian physician, Isreal Brekman, while he was searching for plants to improve human performance. He hit the jackpot with Eleuthero. Brekman distributed the herb to thousands of workers and found that it helps the body adapt to stress, enhances mental acuity and physical endurance, and also improves the way muscles use oxygen. Brekman wrote that Eleuthero "possesses a remarkably wide range of therapeutic activities protecting the body against stress, radiation, and various chemical toxins … increasing general resistance."
