Adaptogens are a unique type of herb that have the amazing ability to adapt to your body’s needs. They can increase energy production, decrease stress, and encourage rest. They literally know and then adapt to whatever your body needs. For example: Adaptogens are used to improve the health of your adrenal system. The adrenal glands are in charge of managing your body’s hormonal response to stress. They help strengthen and enhance your body’s ability to cope with anxiety and fight fatigue.
Adaptogens work a bit like a thermostat. When the thermostat senses that the room temperature is too high it brings it down; when the temperature is too low it brings it up. Adaptogens can calm you down and boost your energy at the same time without over stimulating. They can normalize body imbalances. By supporting adrenal function, they counteract the adverse effects of stress. They enable the body’s cells to access more energy; help cells eliminate toxic byproducts of the metabolic process and help the body to utilize oxygen more efficiently. In short, adaptogens are amazing!
