Hormesis or the Biphasic Dose Response

The biphasic dose response, aka hormesis, aka proper dosage, aka the “sweet spot”, is an incredibly important concept in all-things medicinal and/or health related.  It is the phenomenon whereby low-levels or small amounts of a stressor (ex. exercise, alcohol, curcumin/turmeric) can have beneficial or pro-adaptive properties.
