Natural Energy provides readers with an in-depth look into the uses and histories of a variety of nontoxic plants and supplements, including St. John's Wort, valerian, melatonin, kava, and yohimbe - all of which are available in health food stores or through mail order.
Natural Energy combines up-to-date scientific research with ancient knowledge from a variety of cultures. It explains in great detail what these herbs, nutritional supplements, smart drugs, and essential oils are and discusses their possible effects as stimulants, mood enhancers, and brain boosters. Mark Mayell shows how the active ingredients found in these substances can relax the mind and body without the side effects of conventional depressants such as alcohol and sleeping pills; provide relief from everyday stress and fatigue; increase energy levels; and boost immunity.
Complete with cultural descriptions, user experiences, recommended dosages, and an extensive resource section, Natural Energy is for anyone interested in safe, natural, and legal alternatives to enhance or alter his or her everyday consciousness.
