What are Adaptogens and Functional Mushrooms?
Adaptogens are plants and mushrooms assisting your body in tackling stress and promoting overall wellness. You can enjoy them in food, drinks, supplements, tinctures and snack bars - helping to balance both physical and mental stressors [1,2].
These therapeutic mushrooms, rich in antioxidants, have a tradition of boosting health. They hold potential benefits like antiviral properties, reducing inflammation, and lowering blood sugar levels. Some, termed as adaptogenic, aid in managing stress. Notable ones include Lion's Mane, Reishi and Cordyceps, offering an extra health boost along with essential fibre and vitamins [3,4].
