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 and are having a renaissance today. Some, such as holy basil can be eaten as part of a meal and others are consumed as supplements or brewed into teas.
