Big Summer Energy

Learn About 4 Energizing Extracts*

Summer is in full swing. The days are long, the sun is bright and there are oh-so-many fun things to do! Whether you’re busy hiking new mountains, running around with the kids, or just maintaining an active summer lifestyle in general, now is the perfect time to draw from our energy-supportive herbal allies.*

Learn about some of our current favorite herbs and formulas to help you embrace that big summer energy this year. Plus, be sure to try our new energizing herbal mocktail recipe shared below!*

Asian Ginseng

Asian Ginseng

(Panax ginseng)

There’s no doubt about it: when it comes to natural, herbal energy, Asian Ginseng is one of the first herbs that many herbalists turn to (including us!). This incredible herb is natively found growing in Asia and has a long history of use in traditional Chinese herbalism for enhancing physical & mental energy & stamina.*

Out of all our caffeine-free energy-supportive herbal options, we find Asian Ginseng to be on the upper end of the energy scale. But as a nootropic and adaptogenic herb, it provides sharp focus and stable energy (without the “crash”). A perfect option when you’re feeling a lull on a hot summer afternoon and need a little herbal pick-me-up.*

We offer Asian Ginseng as an alcohol-based tincture and an alcohol-free glycerite. Turn to it when you want to re-energize yourself for all your summer adventures ahead!*



(Rhodiola rosea)

Another herbal energy superhero, Rhodiola is one of our favorite energizing adaptogens. If you find yourself feeling a bit stressed from all the summer travel planning or running from one activity to the next, Rhodiola provides uplifting energy to help make life’s daily stress more manageable while promoting mental & physical stamina. Keep up with the energy of the season by keeping Rhodiola close at hand (we also offer this herb as an alcohol-free glycerite!)*

This herb thrives in northern climates including the Siberian region and Canada. Since the popularity of this incredible herb has spiked in the last several years, wild plant stands of Rhodiola have become increasingly threatened. Rest assured, we are committed to only sourcing Certified Organic cultivated Rhodiola root for our extracts to preserve wild plant stands.

Athlete's Power

Athlete’s PowerTM

If you’re looking for a comprehensive energy and stamina-support herbal formula, look no further than our Athlete’s Power compound. The name really says it all: this blend promotes athletic energy, endurance & stamina. Whether you’re an actual athlete, like Herb Pharm Ambassador Brandie Wilkerson, or if you’re just looking for some everyday pre-workout support, our Athlete’s Power formula is here to help.*

This all-star herbal blend features Sarsaparilla root, Saw Palmetto berry, Eleuthero root and Gotu Kola aerial parts. Channel your inner athlete this summer with stable energy, endurance and stamina.*



(Eleutherococcus senticosus)

When it comes to foundational energy support, Eleuthero is one of our favorite herbal allies to turn to. We find that Eleuthero is less energizing than Asian Ginseng and Rhodiola but provides more foundational daily energy and adrenal support. A key ingredient in our Athlete’s Power formula, Eleuthero is our go-to adaptogenic and nootropic herb to help keep our minds sharp and our energy even.*

Our Eleuthero root is responsibly wildcrafted from the Siberian region where it natively grows. Bonus: we also offer this herb in a glycerite format too!
