I ran across a link on my Facebook  this morning that had some interesting information on Adaptogens.  If you haven’t heard of adaptogens before, you’re not alone.  The dictionary says adaptogens are “(in herbal medicine) a natural substance considered to help the body adapt to stress and to exert a normalizing effect upon bodily processes.

A well-known example is ginseng.”  They have long been used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, but haven’t been as commonly used in the West until more recently.  As the name suggests, adaptogens can have different effects, depending on what your body is needing at the time.  If you’re low on energy, they help you have more energy, but they can also help you handle stress better  when you are feeling too stressed out.
