What is an adaptogen?
Your adrenal system is in charge of managing your body’s hormonal response to stress. Adaptogenic herbs are a group of botanical rejuvenating herbs that greatly improve your body’s ability to adapt to stress and improve strength, energy, stamina, endurance, and mental clarity.
This elite class of adaptogenic herbs literally helps the body to adapt, adjust and recalibrate itself depending on various situations. For example, they help bring calm in times of chaos, peace in times of turmoil, clarity in times of ambiguity. They can even give energy when tired.
A Russian toxicologist, Nikolay Lazarev introduced the term, adaptogen, into scientific literature in 1957. He used this term to refer to “substances that increase the state of non-specific resistance” to stressful situations.’
