PLANTS AND VEGETAL EXTRACTS WITH “ADAPTOGENIC” ACTION:
HEALTHY ANTI-AGING AND ANTI-STRESS EFFECTS Interest in natural health has become by now an increasingly widespread phenomenon: not only do more people wish to live in better conditions and possibly longer; they would also like to have more vital energy and to be able to resist daily stress better. The above words represent a short summary of the many lessons kept by Prof. Alessandro Gelli both in University courses - concerning “ Anti-Aging and Anti-Stress Methodologies”, at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, Sapienza University in Rome - and in the ISS course (Higher Health Institute) in herbal medicine, for doctors and pharmacists. Decades ago, the healthy effects of plants were taught in Academic seminars and congresses. However, interest was by then limited to
a limited number of keen doctors and pharmacists. The present growing interest in “Anti-Aging” (or better Aging Management), has made it an institutional subject taught at universities. This shows that times change, but an essential principle will never change: synergic technical “Anti-Stress education” is essential for serious technical “Anti-Aging education”. Plants can offer a valid contribution when they are recommended on personal needs. Such recommendations must come from a real expert with a global education in practical, technical sectors for the concrete management of the issue with which we must all come to terms, using all possible means: that is, with Stress.
