What Are Adaptogens?
Adaptogens are little gifts from nature. They help the body “adapt” to the things we cannot control. They help our bodies better respond to the stressors in the world around us. As shared on Healthwire:
“Adaptogens are herbal pharmaceuticals. They work to counteract the effects of stress in the body. Stress causes very real physical changes in the body, including harming the neurological, endocrine, and immune systems. Adaptogens have stimulant properties that help counteract those harmful effects.
They work at a molecular level by regulating a stable balance in the hypothalamic, pituitary, and adrenal glands. Typically, when our bodies are stressed, we go through three stages of stress: alarm phase, phase of resistance and phase of exhaustion…”
“Adaptogens aren’t a new concept. They’ve been studied throughout history as a way to improve the body’s ability to respond to stress, increase energy and attention, and fight off fatigue. New research is looking at how adaptogens may be helpful in treating chronic diseases, like respiratory and heart conditions.”
We embrace the power of supportive adaptogens in our Sleep, Calm and Relief lines for their synergistic benefits. Adaptogens such as turmeric, ginger, holy basil and black pepper, in tandem with our CBD oil, help counter the effects of stress, boost immunity and support a healthy inflammatory response.
