Adaptogens

An adaptogen refers to a substance which promotes adaptation by the body to all kinds of stressors, whether they be emotional, physical, or environmental.4 They work by recognising the needs of the body and help to tip the balance in the right direction.

Adaptogens have thousands of years of historical use and have been used in both Ayurveda and Chinese medicine. These herbs contain active phytochemicals that help account for their adaptogenic functions. Due to the heightened levels of stress in the modern world, they are now experiencing a revival in health and wellness practices today.
