What is an Adaptogen?
Well, an adaptogen is a plant that helps your body cope and fight the harmful effects of internal and external stress. It does so by lowering your cortisol levels, regulating your hormonal imbalance and boosting your immunity and nervous system functions while actively contributing to your overall wellbeing. Adaptogens ADAPT to your body's needs.
There are nine well-researched ADAPTOGENS, including Asian Ginseng (Panax Ginseng), American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius), Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus), Schisandra (Schisandra chinensis), Rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea), Shilajit (Asphaltum bitumen), Maral root (Rhaponticum carthamoides) and Cordyceps (Cordyceps sinesis). While some of them can be hard to find in a typical market, two potent adaptogens are easy to get.

This plant is particularly recommended for people who lack vitality due to stress. It is a powerful healthy stimulant that improves physical performance and promotes memory. It also restores physical work capacity and intellectual concentration and helps you regain strength. Ginseng is abundantly used in traditional medicine as it is believed to treat certain diseases related to hormonal imbalances such as erectile dysfunction and type 2 diabetes. Ginseng contains ginsenoside compounds, a powerful antioxidant that inhibits inflammation and promotes healthy cell growth.
Adding Ginseng to your diet will give you energy and vitality while boosting your immune system. It is available in capsule or bottle form and can be added to your hot beverage or juice.
Ashwagandha has been used for more than 3,000 years in Ayurvedic medicine. It is known for its restorative properties. This plant is highly recommended if you are overworked and suffer from fatigue related to physical or mental stress. It is also powerful during convalescence because it has amazing healing properties. Finally, it is recommended if you are looking to strengthen and tone your body and your brain.
Ashwagandha can be consumed in several ways: in decoction with vegan milk, in capsule or in syrup form. If you use it with hot vegan milk, add spices such as cinnamon, ginger or cloves to enhance the flavours and potency.
Ashwagandha has lasting effects but provides best results when consumed regularly.
While adding adaptogens to your diet has tremendous health benefits, you will also profit from adding nutrient-rich TONICS to your diet too.
