What is an adaptogen?
Adaptogens are a group of plants, berries and mushrooms that help the body regain its natural balance and adapt to the different types of stress it may be under, whether emotional, physical, biological or environmental.
To qualify as an "adaptogen" a plant must meet the following three characteristics:
1. Generalized action on the body: even if each adaptogenic plant has its own specificities in terms of benefits, what they have in common is that they generally and sustainably improve the body's resistance to all types of stress it may face
2. Normalizing effect : adaptogens have a regulating and balancing effect on the body and act in a bidirectional way to strengthen or calm it according to its current state. Unlike some excitants like coffee, there are no up and down effects, but rather a stable and long-lasting action throughout the day
3. Absence of toxicity: absolutely safe use and no observed side effects
