Adaptogens are often compared to a thermostat for your body. As we move through the ups and downs of daily life, we call upon our internal resources to stay at the right temperature and state of balance.
Adaptogens are an amazing class of plants and herbs that help normalize the body's stress response, making us more resilient (adaptive) in the face of physical/emotional stress and bringing us back to a state of true balance.
They calm and nourish the adrenal glands and support all the processes that are controlled by the adrenals — from blood sugar and immune system regulation to hormones and blood pressure. (All of which can cause serious problems when thrown out of whack.)
The amazing part lies in their name — they adapt to whatever our bodies need.
They energize without being a stimulant. They calm without being a sedative. They bring our bodies gently back into the state of homeostasis necessary for well-being.
