Adapto-what? Adaptogens explained and why they work.


We are all living dynamic lives, trying to catch up with friends, keep fit and eat well around the demands of our jobs, family and general life admin. It’s no wonder that we often feel there are not enough hours in the day. Even for the most energetic, at times we can feel tired, stressed and overwhelmed. 

 When we don’t address this, it can lead to more serious stress related health problems such as chronic fatigue syndrome and anxiety.

This is where adaptogens can help and it’s easy to incorporate them in to your daily habits.

These clever ingredients are able to detect the type of stress your body is experiencing, mental, emotional, or physical and adapt their function accordingly.

Think of them like a thermostat, reacting to what the body needs, when it needs it:
