Balancing Your Life with Adaptogens
Do you realize that being stressed out every day can cause your body to break down and develop a chronic condition?
It’s time to be proactive with your health. Adaptogens allow your body to work in a way that promotes proper stress response, which lowers your chances of having elevated stress hormone. By reducing stress hormone, you are helping to remove a chemical responsible for excessive inflammation and loss of homeostasis.
Elevated stress hormone increases inflammation, which can lead to the worsening of most chronic conditions. Adaptogens make it easier for the body to maintain its proper resting state or homeostasis, and places it in a position to repair itself.
Adaptogens Promote an Optimum Level of Health
Adaptogenic herbs also have a balancing effect on particular glands and organs - promoting an optimum level of health!
For example, Rhodiola - one of the many amazing herbs in our formula for TianChi - is one of the best herbs for stress. Not only does it reduce stress hormone, but also it has an added bonus of balancing the level of dopamine and serotonin in your brain. Rhodiola actually helps your brain make the neurotransmitters needed to allow it to relax.
When your body has lost its ability to relax, you end up experiencing a low-level stress response throughout the entire day, even when you are sleeping. Since your body is never in a truly relaxed state, it misses the deep healing that it is programmed to have every night.
Getting the Deep Sleep Your Body Needs to Recover
If your body never gets the deep sleep it needs to recover, you may even have another stress response when your alarm clock rings. The process becomes a continual treadmill that repeats day after day, and year after year. Luckily, we have an all natural sleep formula, Sleep and Recover, that can help you to naturally fall asleep and stay asleep!
When you take a high quality blend of adaptogenic herbs like TianChi every day, followed by Sleep and Recover at night, this can allow the HPA axis to finally function properly.
Depending on what state your body is in at the moment, you may feel the effect of the adaptogens immediately, but it also may take several days. What you will notice over time is that you fall asleep more easily, wake up more refreshed, and find that things simply don’t bother you as much as they have in the past.
Adaptogens can really help your life flow much smoother, and make things seem just a little easier.
