What Are Adaptogens?
Adaptogens are certain herbs (like fan-favorite ashwagandha) or mushrooms that help your body adjust to physical, chemical, or biological stress.** They stimulate your body's stress protection response and help its systems return to a balance state known as "homeostasis." Certain adaptogens can even boost the immune system, natural energy, and improve memory and learning.**
Certain mushrooms, including cordyceps, chaga, reishi and lion's mane, can also be adaptogens. They support the adrenal glands, which are in charge of stress management.** Adaptogenic mushrooms also contain a complex carbohydrate called beta-glucans that help boost the immune system.** Chaga also helps boost the immune system.** Cordyceps, specifically, contain bioactive properties that have been shown to increase energy and stamina.** Lion's mane has been shown to boost mood and improve focus.**
Sourced from an indoor farm located in Carlsbad, CA, reishi is an adaptogenic mushroom has been shown to improve overall sleep and mood.**
