Adaptogenic compounds, or adaptogens, are naturally occurring substances that help to restore hormonal balance and better moderate the body's reaction to stress by supporting the internal systems that regulate hormone production.
The adrenal system is one of the most important systems in the body because it controls production on the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline. These "stress hormones" can be extremely helpful to our survival and play an important role in our "fight or flight" response.
But, while Cortisol and adrenaline help us to perform well in stressful circumstances, they are only meant to be released in moderation and can cause irreversible damage to cells when the body endures a prolonged stress response.
Each adaptogenic compound helps to support a different function of the body's response to stress, but they all act as a preventative form of stress management by helping the body to better regulate its hormonal response to stressors.
