How Adaptogens work for you and work in Arc
Have you ever wondered how licorice root could possibly reduce your stress? Or how goji berries might actually boost your energy? And exactly how turmeric enhances your brain and why everybody alive seems to be downing the stuff?
The answer is adaptogens.
That’s basically a fancy word for plants, herbs, and mushrooms that have a unique, individual ability to fight the daily stress on our bodies and minds that are caused by a variety of atmospheric toxins endemic to modern life, be they environmental, chemical, infectious, or even radioactive. The kinds of things Ayurvedic and other forms of traditional Eastern medicine have long embraced.
To put the science simply: Stress kills. And we are what we eat.
Even a tiny Advil, vitamin, or pharmaceutical pill can have dramatic effects on a person’s body, mood, and mind. So when you consider the amount of food we put into our body every day, it really pays to know what’s going into it. Every molecule counts.
You’ll recall your mother urging you to eat less orange chicken nuggets and more colorful fruits and vegetables? Mom was on to something.
Plants are packed with nutrients and antioxidants that fuel and shield our bodies and their internal systems. And a number of them are known as adaptogens, plants that, over time, have developed keen defenses to the strains and stresses of the world like pollution, toxic air, inhalable microplastics, and your bosses’ screaming in your face. Plants that are also able to lend their healing and protective properties to us when we consume them.
Key to adaptogens is their ability to support homeostasis, aka cellular equilibrium, or to be plainer, the ability for your body’s systems to regulate themselves. Our bodies are ridiculously good at adapting, healing, and self-strengthening to deal with daily challenges. But is has to have the right fuel to be able to do this. And Doritos CrunchWraps Supremes ain’t it.
Adaptogens land a one-two punch: They can help your body to regulate bugaboos both atmospheric and behavioral to confront dangers to your internal systems and your mood. People most commonly get into them to reduce and combat stress. Stress is caused by, well… just about everything these days.
To be labeled a true adaptogen, the ingredient must improve and not harm an individual’s core systems, in any way. Most definitely not in the way, that say, a prescription drug can with their long lists of side-effects. Plus, they’re all natural.
Familiar adaptogens include holy basil, renowned for its ability to reduce tension. Ginseng, legendary for enhancing energy, slicing and dicing stress, and bolstering the immune system. And Reishi mushrooms, which improve everything from the functioning of your lungs to decreasing inflation and fighting fatigue.
