Adaptogens have long been associated with increasing energy, enhancing stamina, and reducing fatigue. They encourage physical work capacity and mental performance. Often referred to as tonics, they have far reaching effects on overall physiological health, supporting immune, cardiovascular, and endocrine functions. At the same time, they help the body to adapt to and cope with stress, primarily by supporting the hypothalamic- pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. Cordyceps is used for strengthening the immune system and promoting vitality and longevity. Ashwagandha is recognized for encouraging resistance to environmental stress and supporting immune function and cognitive function. Rhodiola and eleuthero are traditionally associated with rejuvenating effects and the ability to promote endurance. The invigorating effects of schisandra are attributed to support of mitochondrial function and cellular energy.
