myFM: Adaptogens

What if there was a magic pill that helped your stress. No, sadly not make it go away, but help your body be more resilient to it. Well, there might just be. Have you heard of adaptogens?Plants, botanicals, and mushrooms that can help your body mitigate the effects of stress and boost your resilience. 

From Ashwagandha to Rhodiola, Maca, Ginseng to Reishi and Chaga mushrooms. In my Take This by Lianne’s Kid Boost and Skin Boost, superfood powders Shizanraberry, goji berries, greens of spirulina, and chlorella, are all in there. There's licorice root, holy basil or tulsi, turmeric, and astragalus. 

In episode 113, I interviewed Bridgitte Longshore from Orangeville and she’s the founder & CEO of Giddy Yo and she creates foods that pack an adaptogen punch. Some go into her chocolate too! Win-win! 

Chaga - comes from Siberia and is the king of mushrooms and is great for immune support. 

Maca -packs high levels of iron and iodine to promote healthy cells and to help keep your metabolism on track. Its big doses of potassium help digestion and make muscles happy. Maca is also rich in calcium, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals.

Goji berries- give a feeling of well-being and calmness, better athletic performance, bettersleep, add to weight loss, boost your immune system and protect cells as a strong antioxidant. 

Reishi- supports occasional stress, and sleep. Known as the mushroom of immortality, extends life and supports anti-aging, and balances your cortisol levels and even an anti-cancer mushroom. Do as a tea or supplement. 

Schizandra - supports the liver and kidneys, and supports and adrenals.
