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.

What are adaptogens?

Adaptogens are bio-plant actives, such as roots, mushrooms and herbs, grown in extreme conditions in which they adapt to survive. Used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine, they increase our bodies ability to counter-act the damaging effects of stress, bringing the body back in to balance.

How do they work?

Adaptogens regulate the release of stress hormones from the adrenal glands, helping to bring the body back in to homesostais, that’s balance to you and me!

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:

- Providing energy when tired

Clarity when there is mental fog

Calming an over active mind

- Easing the body in to a restful sleep

Whilst adaptogens can’t remove all the stress in your life, they can help to transform the way you feel.
