ADAPTOGENS : Higher Herbal Intelligence
Every REBBL tonic is formulated as a celebration of the finest, world-class adaptogenic herbs.
Adaptogens, a very special class of herbal compounds, are among the most prized health promoting substances known to man. Famed for normalizing the body, gently bringing it back to homeostasis, adaptogens appear to target and correct what’s out of balance. Only a handful of these unique supertonic herbs exist and we are dedicated to bringing you the best.
Some of the benefits attributed to adaptogens:
- Strengthen the immune system
- Improve focus & attention span
- Balance appetite and mood
- Accelerate physical recovery
- Decrease anxiety and tension
- Increase long-term endurance
- Increase protection to the vital organs
Adaptogens promote general wellness through complex biological processes. Sometime referred to as dual-directional herbs, adaptogens can promote homeostasis when important body systems (like the immune system) are out of balance. These special herbs can be taken daily as they have both an immediate and cumulative long-term effect. It's the oldest and newest
wellness science - a higher herbal intelligence.
A Quick History
In 1947 a Russian scientist coined the term adaptogen when he recognized that a special class of herbs could elicit unique and often non-specific physiological responses in his test subjects. He showed that a single herb could both subdue an over active immune systems, and stimulate a sluggish immune system, bringing complex body system into balance. He later confirmed that these ‘adaptogenic herbs’ had a similar harmonizing effect on the nervous system, hormones, metabolism and healthy cell function.
His continued research revealed that there were a number of herbs that exhibited these unique properties and that they could be taken safely over long periods of time with positive health effects.
Fueling impact: a fierce dedication to people and planet
The natural treasures of the Amazon are truly invaluable, yet this region’s inhabitants are living at the margins of the global economy. Today’s supply chains must be rebuilt to create opportunities where there are none.
We proudly partner with Not For Sale to address the root cause of slavery in the Peruvian Amazon: economic vulnerability.
"Impact sourcing" generates a cycle of empowerment:
This is REBBL’s sustainable, scalable economic ecosystem. With this model, we aim to create jobs and grow social economies in other regions of the world where labor exploitation thrives.
At the heart of REBBL is the incredible life-giving force of nature. We believe that the connection between people and planet is sacred and should be honored as such.
Our products represent the preservation of traditional cultural wisdoms that have existed for thousands of years.
REBBL is dedicated to the environmental, economic, social, and cultural dimensions of sustainability. We pledge to discover what it takes to achieve a positive "triple bottom line" of people, planet, and profit on a global scale and advocate for transparency.
Because beverage manufacturing is a complex and energy intensive set of systems, we have taken on the responsibility to find solutions to reduce, and eventually, reverse our negative impact.
By July 2014 REBBL will have completed a full audit of its supply chain and production systems, calculating with accuracy the carbon footprint of each bottle produced.
By the end of 2015, REBBL will implement a plan to achieve carbon neutrality. Beyond that, REBBL is aimed towards a net positive environmental impact - essentially a carbon sequestering program that will move all of us towards a safer, more balanced future climate.
