How do adaptogens work?

In the most basic sense, adaptogens are a specific group of plants, mainly herbs and mushrooms, that help to support the body's ability to fight stress. These herbs or plants are non-toxic and have been used for centuries in Chinese herbal medicine and Indian Ayurvedic traditions. Adaptogens work by supporting the body’s ability to more quickly return to balance in times of stress. Adaptogens can also help manage cortisol levels.*
