“Adaptogens are plants or herbs that enhance the resistance against stress or stressors. These stressors could be physical, chemical, biological or (in animals) mental. Adaptogenic plants evolved to survive and thrive under harsh environmental climates. “I always think of adaptogens as environmental thermostats that sense what the cell, tissue, organism needs and support that adaptation, accordingly.” – Dr. Gumpricht
