What Makes A Healthy Mood? Adaptogens.

Your sleep schedule is nonexistent, that one work project from a week ago is still looming on your to-do list, your car won’t start, oh and that one package you needed delivered on time? DELAYED. Yup, sounds like everyone’s least favorite feeling stress is on a mission to make things harder.

Before you scream into a pillow for the 3rd time this week, why not try another way to overcome your feelings of being overwhelmed?

What are Adaptogens?

Primarily used in holistic medicine, Adaptogens have been around for centuries, but in the last few years you may have seen the word pop up as more people rediscover natural ways to manage stress.

Adaptogens are natural herbs and foods known to help your body better handle physical and emotional stress. 

Think about how you feel when you’re stressed. Sometimes you’re forgetful, you’re tired, you’re unfocused — it affects almost every aspect of your day-to-day. Natural adaptogens work with the body to help bring things back into balance and get you centered.


How do Adaptogens Work?

Let’s start with an underrated dynamic duo — the adrenal and thyroid glands. Together they balance cortisol, also known as the stress hormone, to make sure we’re not too overwhelmed. Unfortunately, when our adrenal/thyroid systems are overloaded, cortisol levels increase, and you’re left feeling beaten and burnt-out. That’s where adaptogens come in. They can help balance out and maintain proper levels of cortisol so you can go back to feeling like you.

 

What Are the Best Adaptogens?

Holy Basil – Encourages positive mood and helps maintain natural sleep rhythms.
Ashwagandha – Supports stress relief, focus, and concentration.
Rhodiola – Helps combat fatigue and other symptoms associated with stress.
