Adaptogenic herbs work to correct adrenal hormonal imbalances, whether high or low. If someone’s stress/adrenal hormones are high, adaptogenic herbs help lower them. If someone’s stress hormones are low, adaptogenic herbs help to increase them.
Adaptogenic herbs have been used in numerous human clinical trials and have been shown to be very safe and provide various benefits like improved mood, fatigue, cortisol levels, memory, immune function, and endurance. Adaptogenic herbs also have a long history of use in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic (traditional Indian) medicine and have been used by these cultures as natural ways to increase energy, stamina, and mood.
