If you’re into healthy eating and living you’re probably already familiar with the term “adaptogen,” but for many, this is a new discovery.

What are adaptogens and why are they so trendy right now?

Adaptogens are actually herbs. They may also include some mushrooms and roots. Their main benefits include helping you with sleep problems, anxiety, stress, etc. For centuries, they have been a key element of Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine, but the western science has also proven them to be effective.

Some of the well-known adaptogens include holy basil, licorice root, eleuthero, ginseng, ashwagandha, and cordyceps mushrooms.

They can help you fight stress-related disorders and increase your quality of life if you suffer from any chronic diseases and pathological conditions. Worth trying, don’t you think?

  • Lower stress and anxiety
  • More energy
  • Weight loss
  • Better immune system
