Adaptogens are natural ingredients, such as medicinal mushrooms, that help your mind & body adapt to physical, mental & emotional stressors and find balance.
Adaptogens can help with energy, stamina and mental clarity when exploring the outdoors. Rhodiola, for example, is an adaptogenic herb that’s known for its effects on balancing stress-levels, improving brain functioning and increasing physical stamina - the Sherpa people in the Himalayas used it when climbing at high altitudes as it is known to prevent altitude sickness. A great way to incorporate adaptogens into your daily diet is adaptogenic coffee.
Adaptogens help balance physical and mental stressors in our mind & body. Caffeine can help increase our alertness and attention (by blocking our adenosine receptors, which make us drowsy) - it can also increase our cortisol levels (our stress hormone) leading to jitters/anxiety. Adaptogens can help balance our cortisol levels, ensuring we get the benefits from coffee whilst minimising jitters/anxiety - plus they have additional health benefits too!
