What are adaptogens? 

Adaptogens are natural superfood plant substances that can be consumed as supplements, fortified into food or infused into drink products. There are a myriad of different types of adaptogens and each produces a different effect on the body. 

Why are they helpful?

Research shows that adaptogens have been found to be helpful to combat fatigue, reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep, boost immune system, improve focus, reduce depression and boost endurance. The most common adaptogens are ashwagandha, cordyceps, and rhodiola which claim to have specific effects on reducing stress hormones including cortisol, boosting stamina, and fighting mental fatigue.  Sign me up!
