How do Adaptogens work?
Between work, family, and life in general, who doesn’t get stressed sometimes?
Whether you are facing a physical challenge or a fun surprise our bodies send out stress hormones in response to both positive and negative experiences in life. Those stress hormones have an effect on your heart rate, respiration, and other body functions and ensure your body can function correctly in any situation.
When stress becomes constant, which is unavoidable for some, it can contribute to an increased risk of various health concerns.
This is where adaptogens are perfect.
Adaptogens are a unique group of herbal ingredients used to improve the health of your adrenal system, the system that’s in charge of managing your body’s hormonal response to stress. By supporting adrenal function, they counteract the adverse effects of stress. They enable the body’s cells to access more energy; help cells eliminate toxic by-products of the metabolic process and help the body to utilize oxygen more efficiently.
Generally, adaptogens help the body cope with physical and mental stress.
