Let’s talk adaptogens, as women living our busy lives, we are often tired and stressed, and adaptogens can be a life-saver. Depending on the adaptogens you use, know that they can be energizing, anti-inflammatory, nourishing and relaxing. Adaptogens are herbs and mushrooms that help the body de-stress and return to homeostasis.
In today’s post, I’m discussing Reishi Mushroom and as mentioned below they are great to boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, nourish the adrenals, and calm the nervous system. You can take Reishi before bed to promote relaxation and restoring sleep. Have you tried Reishi Mushrooms?
Next, Ashwagandha. This adaptogen can be taken in capsule form or tincture to help people who are extremely fatigued. It’s gentle, soothing and calming, helps the nervous system, it’s nourishing to the body, helps with joint pain and aches, and it reduces inflammation in the body as well. Again, you need to take this long term (longer than 4 weeks) to notice the benefits. **If you have a hard time with nightshades, this would not be for you as it is part of that family.
let’s tackle Eleuthero also known as Siberian Ginseng. Eleuthero is an
amazing adaptogen with many benefits. It helps increase energy, mental
alertness and stamina. It helps increase nitric oxide for better
athletic performance. It also brings up and balances low blood pressure.
If you do have insomnia, it is recommended to take it before noon to
not disturb your sleep.
