Few plants have the ability to help us ADAPT to our environment and life situation : an adaptogen will help a person adapt to a large range of environmental, biological, psychological and physical stresses. Adaptogens are able to provide the right healing nudge, in the right amount, at the right time, in the right direction. Pharmaceutical products are still unable to duplicate this natural actions provided by nature's gifts : plants.

Many of the most potent adaptogens (Rhodiola rosea, Eleuthero or Siberian ginseng, Astragalus and Reishi) have been used in Tradtional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. Reishi simply gives you what you need at the moment you need it : energy if you are stagnant, calm if you are overly stressed and wired. Reishi supports both immune and nervous systems, helping the body and mind in case of allergies, viral infections, hypertension, anxiety and enhancing mental alertness and general vigor.

And Reishi mushroom is certainly one of the best adaptogen to bring a person back into balance.
