What Are Adaptogenic Herbs?

Adaptogens are found in the herbs or roots of some plants around the world. They have been shown to counteract the effects of bodily stress, which is why they’ve been used for over 100 years in Ayurvedic healing practices.

In fact, the term was introduced by toxicologist Nikolay Lazarev as “substances that increase the state of non-specific resistance”. They literally help us to adapt to our physical and emotional surroundings.

Adaptogens work by managing how stress hormones are released from the adrenal glands. As biological response modifiers, adaptogens are able to help the body resist the stress response to a variety of triggers.
