Adaptogens are the superheroes in the world of superfoods. For centuries, they have been widely used in traditional medicine, and now foods and drinks with adaptogens are trending. If you are thinking of adding adaptogens to your diet, this blog will be helpful for you. Discover more about adaptogens and their benefits. 

What are adaptogens?

Adaptogens is a class of herbs and mushrooms that help support your mind and body in a good form. As the name implies, the main function of adaptogens is adapting to our mind and body conditions and helping to manage our reactions to stress.

How does it work? If we are anxious and overwhelmed, adaptogens will help our body regulate stress hormones and calm down. If we are exhausted and have a “low battery”, adaptogens will act as energy boosters and help to battle fatigue and stabilize our mood.

What are the benefits of adaptogens?

As we said, the superpowers of adaptogens are not a recent discovery. The herbs and roots of plants were used in Chinese, Indian, and Slavic medicine centuries ago. So, why are they so popular now? Stress is a part of our everyday life: endless to-do lists, deadlines, lack of sleep, quarantine, etc poison our lives. Because of that, we feel anxious, depressed, exhausted, and can't function properly. Adaptogens protect our bodies from toxic stress. They are slow-acting, so it can take up to a few weeks to notice a difference, but it will be worth it.

Of course, adaptogens are not a cure-all, but they can help to deal with stress and be a part of our healthy lifestyle. You should consult with a doctor before consuming adaptogens to make sure that you are not allergic to any of them.
