Adaptogens are non-toxic plants that are marketed as helping the body resist stressors of many kinds, whether physical, chemical or biological.  These herbs and roots have been used for centuries in Chinese and Ayurvedic healing traditions, but they’re having a renaissance today.  Some, like holy basil, can be eaten as part of a meal, and some are consumed as supplements or brewed into teas.

There is plenty of bonafide evidence and medical research backing up our belief in how good adaptogens really are!

In combination with CBD the results can be one of the best non prescription choices out there.

Getting Started with Adaptogens

We stock around 25 different adaptogens and blends to combat stress , fatigue and anxiety as well as relaxation, hormonal balance and improving cognitive function.

A really good couple of choices to start using adaptogens would be Rhodiola Rosea for low mood and needing a lift OR Ashwaghanda for its calming properties, especially helping with Anxiety.
