Adaptogens

A specific set of non toxic groups of herbs, roots and some mushrooms that enable and support our body’s natural ability to cope with stress. They provide a unique ability to “adapt” their function according to the specific needs of the body. Research shows they do this through physical, chemical or biological needs fighting fatigue, enhancing mental performance, relieving depression and anxiety. As our bodies experience GAS (General Adaptation Syndrome) because of the everyday stresses physically and mentally we go through with life’s fast pace we end up staying in the resistance phase more often than not. GAS has three phases; alarm, resistance, and exhaustion. Adaptagens, allow us to stay in the resistance phase via a stimulating effect that fends off exhaustion. Rather than crashing they enable us to attain equilibrium so we can march on. Since adaptogens reduce the stress hormone cortisol you will be able to obtain the energy you need.
