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 subjected to, whether emotional , physical, biological or even environmental.
Although adaptogens have been used for thousands of years in traditional and energetic medicine around the world (Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, Native American medicine, etc.), the first research on them was carried out in the 1940s by a team of eminent Russian researchers.
Today, thanks to scientific research which has intensified and which attests to their benefits, adaptogens are increasingly used by oriental medicines in the as part of gentle therapies, or even as an accompaniment to heavier treatments, so as to relieve the side effects that may be associated with them. Their scope of application is still vast and we are still only at the beginning of research into the prowess of which these plants are capable.
While all adaptogens help your body cope with the challenges it may encounter on a daily basis, each adaptogen has a unique profile and set of incredible properties. Some are more uplifting (like Ginseng or Maca), some are more balancing (like Ashwagandha), some are more calming and soothing (like Reishi or Holy Basil) while others are packed with antioxidants ( such as Amla).
Throughout the history of phytotherapy (herbal therapy), all traditional systems have relied on formulas combining several plants and ingredients, acting in synergy. Combining adaptogens is more effective than a single herb because they can work together to address a given problem more holistically.
That's why we combine carefully selected, synergistic adaptogenic plants in our products. In the case of our Energy formula, for example, Ginseng acts as a tonic and has a short-term action while Maca acts as a hormonal regulator and has a long-term action.
In our powders, these plants are accompanied by a base rich in antioxidants and prebiotics, which acts in support of adaptogens and participates in a better assimilation of the active ingredients present there.
In our drops, we have added vitamins that allow better synthesis of active ingredients.
Yes, and not least!
All our powders are composed of a base rich in antioxidants (Acai, Moringa) and prebiotics (Inulin). Antioxidants fight against oxidative stress and cellular aging while prebiotics help the digestive system function properly. And in addition to its specific activity, our base increases the bioavailability (diffusion and use by the body) of the active ingredients contained in the formula by protecting them right up to their point of absorption (thanks to the antioxidants!) and by promoting it afterwards (thanks to the prebiotics!).
Our drops contain vitamins which allow the active ingredients contained in the plants to be well assimilated by our body and natural preservatives.
Finally our capsules contain essential vitamins and amino acids to enhance the herbal effects.
Our formulas contain no controversial ingredients.
Powder seems to us to be the most natural (minimal transformation), effective (accelerated absorption) and fun (to mix with whatever you like!) method. Indeed, the powder allows a better bioavailability of the active ingredients compared to capsules for example, the envelope of which must first be degraded to release the active ingredients in the intestine. The powder also makes it possible to take a greater quantity of active ingredients per day: the daily dose of 1 teaspoon of 3g is equivalent to almost 7 capsules per day! Finally, we know that some of you have difficulty swallowing capsules or tablets, and we thought of you!
Our adaptogenic powders are to be incorporated into your daily diet. Sprinkle one teaspoon (about 3 grams of powder) daily into your favorite drink, breakfast bowl, or even your favorite dish! Mix. Taste. Find our recipes on our blog.
Our adaptogenic drops are to be mixed in a large glass of water.
Our adaptogenic capsules should be taken with a large glass of water.
Be sure to respect the dose indicated for each product.
Adaptogens are primarily herbs and fungi: most have earthy or bitter tastes and you may feel that naturalness that reflects the purity* of our blends. In order to reduce this bitterness, we have added a slight aroma to our powders (always natural!), specific to each one.
Our drops and our capsules, on the other hand, have no aroma.
*As soon as we can, our products are certified organic farming and 100% of our ingredients are of natural origin.
As a cure: one teaspoon per day*, every day, until the end of the jar. To find a lasting balance, we recommend at least 1 month of treatment.
More punctually: one teaspoon per day*, when you feel the need.
*Corresponds to approximately 3 (three) grams of powder.
For Balance: as a 1-month cure. 18 drops (0.6ml) per day to mix in a glass of water or the drink of your choice. To be taken, preferably, between meals: 9 drops in the morning at 10 a.m. and 9 drops between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
For Le Féminin: as a 1 month cure. 12 drops (0.6ml) per day to mix in a glass of water or the drink of your choice.
For Hair: in the form of a cure 1 month. 4 capsules per day to be taken with a glass of water. To be taken preferably between meals: 2 capsules in the morning and 2 capsules in the evening.
Like a seasoning, our powders are poured and mixed at the very end of your drinks or preparations. Do not pour boiling water directly on the powder at the risk of altering its properties (in coffee, tea or herbal tea for example). In the case of a smoothie or other similar preparation, blend the powder with the other ingredients. In the case of a hot dish, do not cook the powder, but add it at the end and mix. If you have any doubts or questions, do not hesitate to contact us by email (email@example.com).
Adaptogens adapt to you and your current condition, we advise you to take them when it suits you best.
You can therefore take the products at any time of the day, except The Energy that we advise against after 2 p.m., depending on your feelings and your goal. For example, you may need La Sérénité in the morning to face a hard day, or in the evening to relax and prepare for a good night's sleep.
We recommend taking L'Équilibre between meals: 9 drops in the morning at 10 a.m. and 9 drops between 4 and 6 p.m.
We recommend taking La Chevelure between meals: 2 capsules in the morning and 2 capsules in the evening.
The powders are diluted and combined with water, which we recommend hot for better dilution. First pour the hot water and then the powder so as not to scald it, and mix vigorously to avoid deposits. You will then have a very natural overview of our ingredients, always with a natural flavor that varies according to each product. The drops are mixed directly in a glass of water or the drink of your choice. The capsules are taken directly with a large glass of water.
A slight deposit may form some time after mixing your powder, it's a simple physical law and it's all natural! Mix again and it will disappear. The few grains that may remain should not worry you, the most active parts are completely diluted and any residues correspond to the insoluble and inactive parts of the plants. This also explains the few grains that can remain in suspension when mixing.
For powders, depending on the daily dose, a course of one jar or a refill (42g) lasts between two weeks and one month.
We advise you to consume our powders in the form of a cure to see effects quickly and find a lasting balance.
Depending on your needs, you can take between half and one teaspoon coffee per day. Adaptogens adapt to you, so it is essential to observe how your body reacts and adjust accordingly.
The cures are renewable several times a year, when you feel the need (period of stress , change of season, etc.). And it is also possible to consume our powders more occasionally, during the year, as a "boost" (before a sporting event, after a stressful day, etc.).
Drops and capsules last 1 month.
For long-lasting and powerful effects, we recommend extending the dose for up to 3 months. You can then take half a teaspoon a day for adaptogenic powders.
Yes! Our different products are perfectly synergistic and their effects will even be increased tenfold. You can consume them in peace, together or during the same day (respecting the recommended dose for each of them). You can combine them or alternate depending on the day, depending on your goals and your feelings.
All our powders have a lid that prevents air from entering the bottle, thus offering excellent protection for the powders. Some of our products have a self-adhesive seal (Serenity, Energy and Concentration) and others (Beauty, Immunity and Detox) have a seal integrated into the cap, with a small "safety" sticker to mark the seal.
All our powders also contain a white desiccant sachet (anti-humidity), of pharmaceutical quality, which makes it possible to maintain the quality of the powder during its transport. You can discard it after opening the jar. These bags are mainly there to ensure the quality of the powder throughout its transport and to prevent the powder from becoming compact (it is sensitive to temperature variations). The sachets are not very aesthetic but essential to guarantee you a quality product.
It is recommended to keep the products tightly closed at room temperature (below 25°), in a dry environment and protected from light. Best consumed within 3 months after opening.
Yes, all our ingredients are of natural origin.
The majority of our products are certified Organic Agriculture by ECOCERT. Some cannot be because of bad harvests for example, but we try to have organic ingredients as soon as possible.
All of our powders and capsules are vegan.
However, our drops are not vegan. We added honey as a natural preservative.
Yes yes yes!!!
All our ingredients and formulas are tested in microbiological analysis by our partner laboratory located in Drôme.
