What are adaptogens?

Adaptogens are a special class of herbs and mushrooms that help the body adapt to stress by increasing resistance to physical, biological, emotional and environmental stressors, regulating physiological function, and restoring metabolic balance. 

How do adaptogens work?

Defined as non-harmful, adaptogens normalise the body by promoting multiple non-specific and bidirectional defensive responses. A plant’s adaptogenic qualities are often the result of its evolution in harsh conditions - the ability to adapt being necessary to its survival.
