These herbs are named for their ability to help the body “adapt” to stress and current life conditions. They are generally very safe herbs for men, women, and children. Adaptogenic herbs help the body build strength, endurance, vitality, energy, and immunity over time. They are meant to be taken long-term for the best results.

These herbs are so named because they are medicine and should be respected as such. God gave herbs to be used as medicine, so it is important to use wisdom in taking them. Each medicinal herb usually targets a specific gland, organ, or body system. They are stronger, which is why it is recommended to use lower dosages for short periods of time.

Suggested Use

Begin with ½ teaspoon 2x daily in food, drinks, or smoothies. Increase as desired, but usually, 1 teaspoon 2x daily is a great dose for adaptogenic herbs long-term.
