Adaptogens have become a super-powerful word in this new era of wellness and health. They are the main ingredients in supplements, detox juices, and healthy bars. Popular belief is that they are good for our health, but do you really know what adaptogens are, and what are their benefits and effects? And most importantly, are they good for our furry babies?
What are adaptogens?
Adaptogens are non-toxic herbal medicines that boost our physical abilities, as well as our emotional capacities. These herbs have been used in ancient Ayurvedic treatments and Chinese healing for centuries. In addition, they stimulate our anti-depressive, anti-fatigue, and anti-age functions while enhancing our mental capacity and helping us deal with stress.
There are different kinds of adaptogens with diverse properties and benefits. Our All-in-one Powerful Blend of Superherbs and Mushrooms combines them to boost its results. Besides, it is made of organic adaptogens, such as Ashwagandha Root Extract, Reishi Mushroom Powder, Tulsi Leaf Extract, and Rhodiola Extract, among other all-natural ingredients.
In simple words: Adaptogens are to our minds, what exercise is to our bodies. The more we consume them, the more benefits they bring to our health.
Adaptogens in dogs
Similar to their effect in humans, adaptogens in dogs help balance their response system and lower stress. Besides, ‘Adaptogens’ are named like that after their adapting properties. They help your dog’s body adapt to stress, self-regulate, and create a state of balance.
