Adaptogens are natural plants that have been used for centuries to support the nervous system and enhance the body's ability to adapt to stress and environmental changes.
They can help increase energy, reduce fatigue, and improve concentration and memory. They can also assist in reducing stress and anxiety and improving sleep quality. Additionally, they may contribute to enhancing immunity and fighting against chronic diseases.
Adaptogens help regulate stress hormones such as cortisol, which can cause physical and emotional harm when produced excessively.
What is interesting about their action is that they prompt the body to "adapt," as their name suggests. Depending on your needs and body, the same plant may stimulate or calm you, depending on the specific requirement.
Some of the most commonly used plants as adaptogens include ginseng, ashwagandha, rhodiola, cordyceps, reishi, chaga, maca, and many others.
They are often taken in the form of food supplements or as tea or other hot beverages.
It is recommended to consult a healthcare professional before taking adaptogens or any other dietary supplement.
