Adaptogens or adaptogenic herbs are medicinal herbs that have been adopted into Ayurvedic, Chinese and naturopathic medicines.
“Adaptogens are non-toxic plants that are marketed as helping the body resist stresses of all kinds, whether physical, chemical or biological. These herbs and roots have been used for centuries in Chinese and Ayurvedic healing traditions, but they’re having a renaissance today. Some, like holy basil, can be eaten as part of a meal, and some are consumed as supplements or brewed into teas.
Each one claims to do something a little different, but on the whole, “adaptogens help your body handle stress,” says Dr. Brenda Powell, co-medical director of the Center for Integrative and Lifestyle Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic’s Wellness Institute. “They’re meant to bring us back to the middle.” (Source: time.com/5025278/adaptogens-herbs-stress-anxiety)
Our bodies deal with stress, ranging from a mild reaction to something that is annoying to a full-on reaction that can result in us going into fight or flight mode and everything in between. This results in hormonal reactions in our bodies. Adaptogens then help our body to respond to stress.
Nowadays, wellness takes centre stage; adaptogens have emerged as nature’s secret to achieving balance and vitality.

A couple of my favourite adaptogenic drinks are:
It has ancient adaptogenic Ashwagandha, Siberian Ginseng, Licorice Root and Milk Thistle that are traditionally used in Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Modalities. It’s great for winding down. I like this instead of an afternoon cup of coffee.
It has enlivening and awakening adaptogenic mushrooms and coconut MCT oil. They’re easy to make and can also be added to smoothies and cake/muffin batter.
Experience the calming embrace of Lunar Latte, a serene blend of adaptogens such as Ashwagandha, Passionflower, and Chamomile. This soothing drink invites you to unwind and experience deep relaxation. It will help you achieve a restful night’s sleep and wake up refreshed.
Experience the warmth and radiance of the Golden Latte, a golden-hued blend of adaptogens like Turmeric, Ginger, and Cinnamon. This comforting latte supports a healthy inflammatory response, aids digestion, and uplifts your spirits with its earthy and aromatic flavours.
