What Is an Adaptogen?

An adaptogen is a substance or a herb product that helps the body adapt to stress. Adaptogens are said also to increase resistance to trauma, anxiety and fatigue and therefore adaptogens are also referred as rejuvenating or restorative herbs. One of the typical features of adaptogen action is that it is believed to balance human endocrine hormones and immune system and thus bring body back to optimal balanced state and help to maintain that state.
