The best adaptogenic herbs for sleep
We can never say it enough: it all starts with a good sleep! Better energy, stronger immunity, beautiful skin… But stress, mental workload, too much work or staying up late on Instagram can disrupt your sleep. Who do we call for help? Adaptogens of course!
Herbal adaptogens are often thought to be tonics and instead promote energy. But unlike stimulants (coffee, tea, maté or guarana), adaptogens act as a balancer of the fundamental physiological functions of the body.
Ashwagandha, the anti-stress par excellence
Widely used in Ayurvedic medicine, Ashwagandha is a plant that strengthens the body and helps it recover both mentally and physically. It reduces anxiety and stress and relieves sleep disorders by promoting recovery.
Griffonia, the natural antidepressant
Griffonia contains 5-HTP, an amino acid that converts into serotonin, precursor of melatonin, the sleep hormone. Griffonia is therefore very useful in case of sleep disorders, it promotes deep and restorative sleep and fights against insomnia.
Rhodiola, for emotional calm
Rhodiola supports physical or intellectual efforts but it also helps to relax and promotes rest and relaxation. The full meaning of the word “adaptogens”: which adapts to your current needs. It is ideal in times of stress and mental fatigue, to combat mild depression, exhaustion or low motivation. As it promotes relaxation, it is also very effective for finding sleep.
Saffron, for deep relaxation
Saffron has always been used for its soothing properties. It is particularly effective in treating insomnia which is linked to nervous excitement or restlessness.
Schisandra, for its effect on digestion
Schisandra is an invigorating plant that also has a beneficial effect on falling asleep. Its protective action on the liver contributes to better digestion and is one of the keys to restful sleep.
