You may have heard the term “adaptogen” in the media lately, especially within the health and wellness space.

But what does this word really mean, and why is it so important?

Reishi mushroom

Of the thousands of medicinal plants in the world, adaptogens make up only a handful that have earned a special place within traditional healing modalities. Adaptogens like ashwagandha, reishi, and maca are believed to act as body-system modulators and promoters of homeostasis. When taken daily, they will strengthen the body’s own adaptive resilience to stressors. These exquisite plants have been used and treasured by global populations for thousands of years.
