Dr. Israel I. Brekhman

Dr. Brekhman was a pharmacologist, research scientist, teacher, Order of Lenin recipient (highest Russian civilian award), and above all else, a humanitarian. Dr. Brekhman laid the foundations for the study of a new class of plants known as “Adaptogens"; and paved the way for their extensive study by proteges and colleagues around the world.      

What Are Adaptogens? 

Adaptogens are natural substances found only in a few rare plants and herbs. These provide special nutrients that help the body achieve optimal mental and physical performance, along with maintaining homeostasis. Scientific studies have shown that humans and other organisms are able to adapt better and survive longer when consuming adaptogens.

FAQs

Can you tell me more about the Brekhman Research Library?

 

The Brekhman Research Library is the leading Adaptogen research lab and provider since 1991. Adaptogens are herbs that are completely non-toxic to humans and aid in homeostasis. These plants have no harmful side effects, no matter length of use, are beneficial for physical and mental performance and help with resistance to stress. Dr. Brekhman is the father of modern adaptogen research. Dr. Brekhman's goal was to create natural medicines that benefit mankind without side effects. With Adaptogens he accomplished his goal. Our research library has been granted exclusive rights to use Dr. Brekhman’s name by his family, and in accordance with his wishes, we have continued our research and advocation for Adaptogens. No other research library has been given access to his personal research papers. 

Dr. Brekhman was a world renowned, award winning scientist and researcher. In 40 years of research, using clinical and laboratory studies, he learned how to harness the full power of Adaptogens, down to the exact time of day to harvest. At our research library, we are continuously compiling years of research, studies, papers, and articles, as well as Dr. Brekhman’s own research papers.

 

Who was Dr. Brekhman?

 

Israel I. Brekhman devoted his lifelong work to the discovery of new formulas to promote health and well-being. He broke ground into an entirely new area of nution, providing the key for achieving health and vigor. Dr. Brekhman directed his research for more than forty years towards plants of the Russian Far East, many of which possess remarkable attributes for naturally supporting human health. Extensive research into these unique plants and others from around the world allowed Dr. Brekhman to completely understand and harness their vital elements. Through this process, he laid the foundations for the study of a new class of plants known as “Adaptogens”; and paved the way for their extensive study by proteges and colleagues around the world.
 

Adaptogens, although used for centuries, remained relatively unexplored until the mid 1940s when a group of Russian scientists took an interest in them and began research of these amazing herbs. For 50 years, Dr. Brekhman delved into the mysteries of Adaptogenic herbs, uncovering incredible benefits in the areas of physical performance, stress management and concentration. In later research, it was revealed that all Adaptogenic herbs also have anti-oxidant properties.

Dr. Brekhman’s dream was to develop the science of keeping everyone well to the extent that it was possible. This science he called “Valeology”, the science of staying well. The result of his fifty years of research is available in the form of the Adaptogenic products developed by his team of scientists. Dr. Brekhman’s success depended upon his commitment to the science. He experienced great difficulties including lack of funding and generally disinterested bureaucrats. However, years of dedication finally paid off and funding began to trickle into his projects. His research gained the interest of the sports community, military, animal research and finally the medical establishment of Russia. From his research Dr. Brekhman developed a protocol using Adaptogens to help diminish the effects of alcohol. For this President Gorbochev awarded him the prestigious Order of Lenin and the doors to research finally opened. Dr. Brekhman’s devotion was to Adaptogens – “The best from nature!”

What are Adaptogens? 

 

Adaptogens are plants that are non-toxic to humans and aid the body in resisting stressors. The Russian physician and pharmacologist, Dr. Israel Brekhman, and his mentor, .rof. Nicolai Lazarev, named them “Adaptogens” due to the plants' effectiveness in helping the human body to “adapt” to changes in the environment; maintain homeostasis. In fact, these special plants have managed to survive in harsh environments for centuries themselves, possibly due to their unique composition of their biology.

  1. They are completely non-toxic to the human body and would have no harmful or negative effects no matter what amount or how long they are used.

  2. They catalyze responses in the body to increase the body's mental and physical performance as well as provide resistance to stressors at the cellular level.

  3. Their effect is to balance and normalize the body's systems leading to overall homeostasis and health.

 

Although they are all adaptogens and produce similar responses, there is diversity in Adaptogenic herbs. Each has distinct characteristics, but all Adaptogenic herbs are said to improve health. Additionally, these amazing plants contain antioxidants and allow for avoidance of possible dangers and side effects of prescription drugs.
