What are Adaptogens?
The word adaptogen is used by herbalists to refer to a natural herb product that increases the body's resistance to stresses such as trauma, anxiety and bodily fatigue. In the past, these “magic” herbs have been called rejuvenating herbs, qi tonics, rasayanas, or restoratives. All adaptogens contain antioxidants, but not all antioxidants are necessarily adaptogens, and adaptogenic functions are probably not their primary mode of action.
