Adaptogens are a gift from nature that help the body deal with stress and react to it more calmly. These little gems are a group of plants that pack a powerful punch.

Adaptogens help our body adapt to internal and external stress. One reason that stress can be exhausting both physically and mentally is that our body does not readily distinguish between real and perceived stress. This is one reason why “worry” has such a negative result in both short term and long-term health.

Science tells us1 that when our bodies are stressed, they respond by telling the autonomic nervous system to work harder. If stress is ongoing, chronic, and/or unpredictable, the nervous system gets depleted, and the body has an increasingly hard time recovering when the stress gets amped up.

Behavioral problems can also start to show up in periods of high stress, like insomnia, loss of appetite, and making poor decisions.


Here’s How Adaptogens Work

The way researchers think Adaptogens work is by helping the body’s autonomic nervous system return to its normal, healthy, relaxed state. This helps avoid needing to redirect excessive amounts of energy to the nervous system. It also helps the body recover more quickly after stressful situations have passed.

Adaptogens are also known to support the endocrine system or our glandular system. A gland produces a hormone, a hormone transports via the bloodstream to a cell and affects a cell’s function. So, one of the endocrines systems roles in the body is to move our body toward homeostasis, or balance. The adrenal glands are the glands that come to mind for most of us when we talk about stress, our stress response and our desire for the natural desire of balance.


Adaptogens Support the Body in This Desire to Balance

Modern Western medicine relies more heavily on synthetic pharmaceutical drugs to fight stress. These remedies are designed to just address the symptoms of stress, and they often come with a lot of negative side effects.

Traditional medicine and healing practices rely more on remedies that come from nature and that help get the body back into balance so the symptoms no longer occur. They often turn to Adaptogens to work on a higher level and to elevate patients to an overall feeling of wellbeing.

For instance, Adaptogens are frequently used in Ayurvedic medicine, which is an ancient Indian healing practice that addresses everything from digestive problems to ailments associated with age. Ayurvedic medicine identified some of the most important and best Adaptogens known to us, including Holy Basil and Ashwagandha. Other effective adaptogen herbs include Rhodiola, Schizandra, Maca and Ginseng.


Adaptogenic Herbs

An article2 published in the peer-reviewed Alternative Medicine Review said Adaptogenic herbs can help people adapt to prolonged stress caused by “malnutrition, surgery, chemical exposure, excessive exercise, sleep deprivation, or a host of other environmental causes” and minimize some of the effects of stress.

We can learn a lot from nature and from traditions that have been leaning on it for thousands of years to keep us healthy and thriving. Adaptogens and their ability to help us deal with and sometimes even bypass stress, are a great example of this. Could these little plants be the perfect antidote to our busy, always-on modern lifestyle? It’s hard to argue with nature!

Consider our natural supplements to support healthy sleep, stress management, occasional anxiety, emotional reserves, and adrenal output.
