Maintaining a Strong Immune System with Adaptogens

A strong immune system is important for staying healthy. A good immune response will help you fight off illnesses quickly. You should always try to eat right, sleep well, and exercise to help your body maintain a strong immune response. You can also give your system a little boost with supplements! Some of the best herbal supplements that support your immune system are vitamins (especially Vitamin C) and adaptogens.

“Adaptogen” was first used and recorded in 1947 by Lazarev; found that certain herbs increase resistance to stress. Adaptogens are generally used to help balance hormones. Adaptogenic herbs have been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine. *This information should not be taken as a suggestion to discontinue or refuse conventional treatments. While adaptogens cause minimal side effects compared to pharmaceuticals, several can interact with medications. Please consult a Qualified Medical Professional before starting any supplement regimen. Some adaptogens are not recommended for people with specific health conditions.

There are a lot of adaptogens (like really – a LOT) ranging from herbs to spices to berries. And we use a lot of adaptogens in many of our blends! Some of our favorites include green tea, holy basil (also known as ‘tulsi’), turmeric, licorice root, echinacea, rosemary, and blueberries!
