Adaptogens – The “Elixirs of Life”

Shakeology® has had such a huge impact on my health and nutrition that I want to shout it from the rooftops. So, I thought I would start educating myself about what is actually inside these health shakes and all the benefits they have to offer, that way I can possibly begin to understand why they have had such an amazing impact on my heath, fitness, digestion, energy, skin, and moods.

Along with Himalayan Pink Salt, there are also adaptogens in each and every Shakeology shake. What are adaptogens, you ask? Well I asked the same thing, so I decided to do a little research.

Adaptogens are referred to as the “longevity herbs” in the East because for thousands of years they have been used to maintain the body’s vitality. Adaptogen herbs get their name from their “adaptable” traits. Adaptogens interact with each body in a unique way. By regulating various hormones, these powerful herbs can provide all-over body support.
Want to support your body’s immune system and organ function, improve stamina, recover from illness quicker, address mood and sleep disorders, or help cut the stress from your life? Then you need to start getting in on some adaptogen action!
