How can Adaptogens Support You?
Adaptogenic herbs are herbs or plants that can affect different parts of the body in different beneficial ways.
The term “adaptogen” was coined by Nikolai Vasiyevich Lazarev back in 1947.
While most things identified in nature help increase or decrease certain functions within the body, adaptogens are non-specific remedies “that increase resistance to a broad spectrum of harmful factors (stressors) of different physical, chemical, and biological natures”.
