Adaptogen Elixir Ingredient Breakdown

Mother Nature has provided plenty of tools for conquering the effects of stress, and you get the best of them with Adaptogen Elixir.  

Adaptogen Tea Blend  

To support your body combat the effects of stress and find inner balance, Adaptogen Elixir™ pairs ever popular kombucha with adaptogens like astragalusschisandra, and rhodiola. These words may not yet spark instant visions of ocean waves and a zen life, but as soon as we introduce you, you’ll be daydreaming about these adaptogens. 

Kombucha black tea (Camellia sinensis) leaf: Made by fermenting black tea leaves with sugar and Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast, or SCOBY for short, kombucha dates back thousands of years. It continues to gain global notoriety for its array of health benefits (1). 

Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus) root extract: Native to China, astragalus has been traditionally used for thousands of years as an adaptogen to help increase energy and resistance to stress (2). Astragalus membranaceus is gaining interest in research for its cardioprotective, immune health, and longevity effects (3-5). 

Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus) root extract: A small, woody shrub native to Northeastern Asia, eleuthero has been used in China for more than 2,000 years as a natural remedy for fighting fatigue. Recent studies have also indicated eleuthero root may help to maintain mental and physical performance under stressful conditions through improved focus and cognitive function (6). 

Schisandra (Schisandra chinensis) fruit extract: Known as the “five flavor berry” because it contains all five of the primary flavors: sweet, salty, sour, pungent, and bitter, schisandra berry grows as part of a woody vine native to the forests of Northern China and Eastern Russia. In human studies, schisandra showed an increase in work accuracy and decreased feelings of fatigue and exhaustion (7). 

Red beet (Beta vulgaris) juice powder: A superfood root vegetable rich in nutrients and betalain, a natural deep red pigment that gives many plants their bright color.  

Rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea) root extract: A plant that is native to the coldest regions of the world, Rhodiola has been used as an herbal medicine for several centuries in Russia and Scandinavia to increase physical endurance and improve energy levels. In clinical trials, Rhodiola has been shown to help strengthen the mind and body’s resistance to stress (7). 

Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) root extract: An ancient Ayurvedic herb, ashwagandha is an adaptogen shown to promote cognitive relaxation and help the body adapt to the effects of physical and mental stress (8-10). 

Luxuriously Delicious Flavor 

Adaptogen Elixir only uses a handful of ingredients to entice your taste buds with its sparkling fruity rose tea flavor, lightly sweetened with apple and stevia. 

Apple juice Concentrate: Made from filtered apple juice, apple juice concentrate has a mild flavor and color, making it ideal for natural sweetness and fruity flavor enhancement. 

Natural Flavors: “Natural flavors” is a regulated term used to define flavorings created using only components found in nature. They are generally made of essential oils, essences or extracts, fruit juices, and spices. Adaptogen Elixir’s natural flavors include lychee fruit and a subtle essence of rose.  

Purple carrot and lemon juice concentrate: Anthocyanin-rich purple carrot juice mixed with tart lemon juice provides complexity to Adaptogen Elixir’s flavor while also imparting a beautiful rich berry color.  

Stevia (Stevia rebaudiana) leaf extract: A South American herb that is naturally sweeter than sugar and provides no calories. 

Citric acid: Naturally found in citrus fruits, citric acid lowers the pH to help maintain freshness.
