In todayʼs modern age we are constantly being pulled in different directions and putting our bodies through all kinds of stress. From working way too much to lack of sleep to sitting in a cloud of exhaust and traffic, we are exposed on a daily basis to stress. Adaptogens are a class of herbs that help our bodies adapt to chemical, physical and biological stresses. Stress in its many forms affects our health, and when we’re exposed to prolonged stress it can upset the delicate hormonal balance in our bodies. This can lead to a whole host of issues impacting sleep, mood, focus, energy, and even how our bodies metabolize fats and carbohydrates. Adaptogenic herbs can have a normalizing and balancing influence on the body, helping to regulate our metabolism, hormones, and enhance immunity and muscle recovery. Adaptogenic herbs have been used for centuries in Chinese, Ayurvedic and ancient Greek healing traditions. These herbs contain many therapeutic properties that help to bring balance to our bodies. With our fast paced lifestyles finding balance is ever pressing, and adaptogenic herbs can help!
