Adapting to Changing Times with Marita Orr
Could you use a little pick-me-up to help with any stress that may accompany all of the fun and family? Adaptogens are a class of herbs that do just that. As the name suggests, adaptogens help your body “adapt” to stress in a completely natural, holistic and safe way. These plant extracts boost the body’s ability for resilience and resistance to the damaging effects of physical, emotional, mental and environmental stressors. We all know that stress can wreak havoc on our hormones. By normalizing the body’s stress response, adaptogens encourage hormonal balance. These non-toxic plant compounds are generally safe for everyone. Here’s How Adaptogens Can Help: Regulate the production of stress hormones like cortisol Maintain healthy organ function during periods of stress Increase your resistance to stress Balance hormones Boost immune health Protect brain and heart health Decrease adrenal fatigue
