Adaptogens - Your Herbal Allies

Ask anyone and they’ll probably agree that stress is a part of life. They’re also sure to welcome ways to lessen the impact of stress on their quality of life. According to the American Psychological Institution, 77% of Americans regularly experience physical symptoms caused by stress, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports over 44% Americans consider themselves “over-stressed.” Stress contributes to many health concerns, and while it’s impossible to remove all stressors, it’s imperative to adjust how we respond to stress in order to lead our most vibrantly healthy lives.

Increasingly, people are looking for ways to manage stress. Regular exercise, adequate sleep, a healthy diet, and working to cut out unhealthy habits are all excellent ways to improve your quality of life by protecting your mind and body from the negative effects of stress. In addition to these lifestyle tips, organic herbs are a great way to enhance overall wellness.

There's a kind of herb whose ACTUAL JOB is to protect you from stress!

Enter Adaptogens

As the name implies, adaptogens are herbs that help your body adapt! Adaptogenic herbs have been used in ancient healing systems for centuries and help to protect the body from all kinds of stress. Incorporating adaptogens into your daily routine is an easy way to combat the negative effects of stress while boosting immunity, promoting a calm mind, and nourishing your body with balanced energy.

Referred to as intelligent herbs, adaptogens are treasured for their ability to assist the body in countering physical, emotional, and environmental stressors, while promoting the body’s natural state of balance.
