Adaptogens, you may have heard the word being used a lot recently and for good reason. So what are they exactly? Well these ancient plants and herbs are powerful tools in keeping our bodies in balance. They do as their name suggests and adapt to what our body needs. Their adaptogenic properties help our bodies to adapt to the biological and psychological stresses of everyday life. The unique plants and herbs support our adrenal system and help to balance hormones so we are able to better manage our response to stress on a day to day basis.
Years ago when I was having trouble balancing my hormones I introduced adaptogens into my diet and found an incredible improvement in not only my hormones but also my overall health and well-being. For this reason I created our Breakfast Blend. Not only is this blend filled with incredible spices full of health benefits, but it also has two powerful adaptogens, Ashwagandha and Maca.
Ashwaghanda, a popular Ayurvedic herb is a powerful antioxidant that is beneficial to the cardiovascular, nervous, endocrine and immune systems. What does that mean exactly? It means that by including this herb into your diet you’ll be helping your body to decrease stress and anxiety, help with depression, fatigue, insomnia and support an underactive thyroid. It is also a powerful hormone balancer, immune booster and helps to improve your overall well-being.
Maca is the other powerful adaptogen we have added to our Breakfast Blend. This root vegetable which I think tastes slightly of butterscotch, is an incredible hormone balancer, it helps to increase strength and stamina, fight fatigue, boost immunity and increase fertility.
Together these two adaptogens, along with the other spices form a powerful supportive blend to help maintain overall health and well-being and ensure our bodies are equip with the tools they need to handle the everyday.
