Adaptogens

 The term adaptogen refers to substances that theoretically β€œadapt” to what your body needs and help protect against various stressors.


 

They are natural substances, usually herbs, that help your body adapt to physical and mental stress. Adaptogens have been used for thousands of years to help calm the mind and body , balance hormones, and even improve physical performance. Adaptogens work with your body, helping to balance and regulate hormones and support your immune system.

Adaptogens are different from other nutritional supplements in that they seem to offer a cumulative effect. That means the more consistently you take them, the better they work to modulate stress, help your brain, and help your body recover.
