What are adaptogens?

Adaptogens are herbs and mushrooms that help with a wide variety of stressors, such as: physical, biological, emotional and environmental stressors, regulating physiological function, and restoring metabolic balance. 

How do adaptogens work?

Defined as non-harmful, adaptogens help with a wide variety of stressors by working intuitively with the pituitary, hypothalamic, and adrenal glands. Crucially, they do so by supporting equilibrium in the body. A plant’s adaptogenic qualities are often the result of its evolution in harsh conditions - the ability to adapt being necessary to its survival.
