Raise your hand if you are feeling like you are being pulled in a few extra directions, if you feel like you just have more to do and not enough hours.
Yoga, breathing exercises, extra long walks can help calm you down .. or maybe you plunk yourself in front of the TV and binge watch your favorite TV show on Netflix.
Do you know there are super herbs called adaptogens that can help you relieve your extra levels of stress?
So, what are adaptogens? “Adaptogens are basically a group of plants that you take over a long period of time in order to help your body adapt to stress and other ailments,”
They have been used for centuries in Chinese Medicine and while they don't simply eliminate stress they do actually help regulate your hormones.
How can they help me? Adaptogens can do a bunch of different things. Some help boost your workout, some help improve energy levels and others will help you feel calm and reduce the stress.
Their names comes from their ability to "adapt" based upon your body and your body's needs. Kind of like a thermostat that regulates your heat or your cool to keep your home in an 'even' state.
What are some popular adaptogens? While there’s no clear consensus on exactly how many adaptogens exist, most experts seems to agree that there are approximately 15 plants that fall into the adaptogenic category. Some of the most common ones include ashwagandha, ginseng, holy basil and maca
Should I try adaptogens? “In order for an adaptogen to be defined as such, it has to be safe, non-toxic and non-habit forming,” says Williams. But always check with a doctor before adding adaptogens into your daily routine, as some can interact negatively with certain medications and conditions.
