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 3 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 enjoyable book also includes advice on getting the best quality adaptogens and has a handy shopping guide. This book was previously in hardback.
