About Eleuthero Tincture: Eleuthero is a well-loved, sweet-tasting, adaptogenic root that strengthens the body and mind when used over 3-6 months. Adaptogenic in action, Eleuthero is the kind of herb that helps a person to take the next (best) step and supports one's ability to adapt to all varieties of stress, be they physical, emotional, or environmental in nature. Eleuthero helps to support normal levels of stress hormones circulating in the body.
