While adaptogens seem like the hot new health product in town these powerful roots, plants and herbs have been used to treat ailments for hundreds of years. In short, adaptogens help the body’s hormonal response to stress and help our bodies adapt to stress better. In today’s society we are always on the go, our minds are always running and we are constantly stressed out. These magical herbs have a unique ability to “adapt” their functions according to what one’s body needs. They have been used for centuries in Eastern medicine and for as long as I can remember in my household thanks to my dad. If you remember, he is also the one who introduced me to many of the health supplements and so many of the other life hacks that I have integrated into my daily routine. I like to switch up different adaptogens based on my specific needs at the time and below are some of my faves.
