What is an adaptogen?

Adaptogens are a large variety of herbs and mushrooms that help your body increase its ability to cope with the physiological symptoms of biological stress. They provide equilibrium to your hypothalamic-pituitary-endocrine axis – or in other words, how your brain and hormones communicate.

Adaptogens are found in natural medicines all over the world, and while they all work to help your body adapt to stressors, each one has a unique strength.
