Are you asking yourself what exactly are Adaptogens?
Adaptogens are non-toxic plants that help the body resist the effects of stress. When we face stressors (whether it is physical or mental) our bodies go through what’s called general adaptation syndrome (GAS). GAS is a three-stage response: alarm, resistance, and exhaustion. Adaptogens help us stay in the resistance phase longer (via a stimulating effect that holds off the exhaustion) so instead of crashing during a stressful event, we are able to remain more balanced.
When you take adaptogens you’re essentially training your body to handle the effects of stress. The plants do this by interacting with the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis and the sympathoadrenal system, both of which are involved in the body’s response to stress. Adaptogens tweak hormone production and physiological responses to stress to ensure that your body is functioning optimally.
