Do you want to adapt better to stress?
Want to feel like you have more brain power?
Do you want to push yourself physically and mentally?
Adaptogens could help you do that.
What are Adaptogens?
Adaptogens are specific plant chemicals found in certain plants that help the body respond to stress more effectively.
In my Powerful Benefits of Adaptogens post, I discuss in depth what adaptogens are.
Essentially, they “act as eustressors (i.e., “good stressors”) and as mild stress mimetics or “stress vaccines” that induce stress-protective responses” (Panossian 3).
This Adaptogenic Vanilla Rose Latte uses the adaptogen Rhodiola Rosea to give it it’s beneficial properties!
Benefits of Rhodiola Rosea include:
– Enhanced energy, endurance, and alertness
– Improved memory
– Reduced fatigue
It’s important to safely source any “supplemental” powder. I bought my Rhodiola Rosea from this store on Amazon. It’s USDA organic which means it should be safe.
