Plants for Stress with other benefits

What in the heck is an Adaptogen?

It’s your lifesaver when you are drowning in the stressors of everyday life!


Adaptogens are plants that help the body resist stressors of all kinds, whether physical, chemical, or biological. These herbs, roots, and mushrooms have been used for centuries in Chinese and Ayurvedic healing traditions, but here in America, the general public is just finding out about these awesome herbs. Some, like Tulsi (holy basil), (my favorite adaptogen) can be eaten as part of a meal, and some are consumed as supplements or tinctures or brewed into teas. Each one claims to do something a little different, but on the whole, adaptogens help your body handle stress. They’re meant to bring us back to the middle.
