Move over superfoods, adaptogens have entered the chat.
Adaptogens are plants that help the body increase its resistance to and recover from various kinds of stress. If you want to spend less time feeling burnt out, and more time actually enjoying your life, try incorporating adaptogens into your daily life!
Some more common adaptogens include ashwagandha, rhodiola, and ginseng, but there’s also holy basil, cordyceps, and maca root, among others. Each adaptogen offers its own benefits, with many offering multiple benefits.
Here are just a few of the benefits you can enjoy from various adaptogens:
Multiple studies show natural herbs and remedies can offer the same anxiety-reducing benefits as some pharmaceuticals.
