How to use adaptogenic herbs and ingredients to regulate and balance the body's response to stress.

Adaptogens, such as Ashwagandha, Maca, Korean ginseng, Turmeric, Reishi mushrooms, Liquorice, Rosemary and Rhodiola, have been scientifically proven to lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol and prevent adrenal imbalances that can lead to adrenal fatigue and 'burn-out'.
