What are Adaptogens? Fundamentally they are super plants and functional mushrooms whose health benefits have been known and used over the centuries to help with energy, stress, mental function, immunity, and more. They include Turmeric and Cacao and around 700 species of fungi but this book focuses on just the top 21. Neatly dividing them into three main categories: Defend, Perform, and Restore, the authors then analyse the science behind how they work, including how they interact with our bodies and what they are made of so you can focus on those that have the properties that fit your needs. This superb book also includes advice on getting the best quality adaptogens and has a handy shopping guide. The authors are eager to help us be able to use these adaptogens in our daily life, and have created their 10 Commandments of Adaptogens which provide an easy, go-to reference for their daily usage.
