Adaptogens

What are Adaptogens?

Adaptogens are plants and mushrooms that help the body resist physical and psychological stressors. Certain plants and mushrooms contain naturally occurring compounds that can help protect the body from stressors and restore balance.

A stressor can be anything that causes the release of stress hormones. Physical and psychological stressors are the two primary categories of stressors.

Physical stressors

Described as stressors that put a strain on our body. For example:  pain, chronic illness, injury, extreme hot or cold temperatures.

Psychological stressors

Specified as individuals, comments, situations, events, or anything we interpret as negative or threatening.

Nootropics

Nootropics are plant based compounds which help improve mental performance and increase stamina. Several plants and mushrooms offer properties of both adaptogens and nootropics.
