Adaptogen’s- Stress’s Natural Enemy

If you are anything like me you may have found yourself, more times than you would like to admit, searching google with phrases like- “How to cure anxiety naturally?” “What supplements help with anxiety?” “How the F*** do I get rid of my God D*** anxiety?!?”

Well if you have you have probably read a lot on adaptogens- wonderful,  NATURAL compounds that greatly improves your body’s ability to adapt to stress both physical and emotional!

Here a few of my favorite adaptogens and how I consume them daily!

maca root

Maca Root– This adaptogen can not only ease your stress, it can also heat up your love life as it enhances libido! With over 20 amino acids, phyotonutrients, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals this root helps rejuvenate your adrenal gland– which helps the body in its ability to handle stressful situations.

astragalus-root-health

Astragalus Root-Forget stress!!!! This adaptogen has a long list of benefits– including anti aging properties! But seriously, you should add this to your diet if you are looking for natural ways to alleviate stress. Astragalus helps lower cortisol the stress hormone!

Ginko-Biloba

Ginko Biloba– Like the Astragalus root, this too helps lower cortisol. Did you know cortisol is a catabolic hormone. If you are looking to build muscle mass and strength, decreasing the amount of catabolic hormones in your system after you workout will help!

Holy Basil– This herb helps control many hormones including corticosterone. Lower levels of this hormone are associated with improved memory and mental clarity.

Buddhateas Reishi Mushroom Tea

Reishi Mushroom- Not only can this mushroom help regulate the cardiovascular, central nervous system, and your digestive system but it also helps regulate your endocrine system-which is responsible for your hormones.

ashwagandha

 

Ashwagandha- While I can go on and on about how this adaptogen has significantly helped my PMDD, it is also scientifically shown to reduce stress. Scientists conducted clinical study where subjects were given either a dosage of Aswagandha while other receive placebo pills. Participants given the herb stated they noticeably felt less anxious, depressed, and slept better. And it wasn’t just in their heads. scientists also collected blood samples and saw a consistent drop in cortisol levels across the board for those taking the supplement.

The crazy thing is Shakeology has all of these supplements. I don’t know about you but I much rather drink a shake that tastes like a peanut butter cup than swallow a bunch of supplements. Not to mention the 6 superfoods above are just a portion of what is in Shakeology!

Shakeology doesnt just taste good. It also feels good on my wallet. Lets just take the 6 supplements listed above:

Organic Ashwagandha-$15.32, Organic Holy Basil-$13.89, Organic Ginco Biloba-$18.77,  Organic Astragulus Root– $10.96, Organic Reishi Mushroom– $20.85, and Organic Maca Root-$15.50

If you were to buy JUST those 6 supplements above you would be spending $95.29. Why not get a whole lot more with Shakeology and pay just a few dollars more (with a coach discount)
