5 Benefits of adding Adaptogens to Your Diet
Our diets have changed! Processed and packaged foods feel more common than natural, organic foods and our collective mental health is struggling because of it.
Fortunately there is surging popularity in food, herbs, and natural substances to improve our wellbeing by aiding in our ability to adapt to changes in our external environments.
These botanical treasures are known as Adaptogens, and adaptogens help the body restore balance and adapt to stress. They work by increasing the body’s resistance to multiple stressors, including physical, emotional, and environmental.
So what should you expect when consuming adaptogens? These are the 5 Benefits of adding Adaptogens to your diet:
Reduction of Stress and Anxiety
Adaptogens shield the body and mind against acute and chronic stress. They have a nonspecific or generalizing effect on the body and mind, improving functions in all base operations – or reestablishing balance.
Their regenerative properties help to harmonize communication between the mind and body, reducing physical and mental stress and anxiety.
Adaptogens to reduce stress and anxiety:
Enhanced Brain Function
In reducing stress and anxiety, adaptogens naturally give the mind the ability to focus and think clearly. Adaptogens use their balancing powers to nourish the nervous system. The goal of the nervous system is to bring balance to all internal responses, which keep the mind healthy.
With a well-nourished nervous system by way of regular adaptogen consumption, one can expect more clarity and improved brain function. Cordyceps, an adaptogenic mushroom, has been shown to alleviate short-term memory impairment and improve blood flow to the brain.

Improved Immune Function
Perhaps the most common use of Adaptogens is to improve immune response. Adaptogens can detoxify the body of heavy metals and protect cells against external attacks, preventing illness and a suppressed immune system.

Increased Energy Levels
One Adaptogen, in particular, is known as a killer of fatigue — Shilajit. The Sanskrit word means, “the invincible rock”, and its usage dates back thousands of years as a vital herbal tonic to improve general physical and mental strength.
One serving of Shilajit has shown significant promise to improve energy levels and reduce chronic fatigue.
