Bringing more than 20 years of experience in the development of adaptogen supplement technology to people who desire to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.
The benefits of Adaptogens have been studied for decades. Below are some key studies with adaptogens in both humans and animals that are beneficial in understanding how they work. Adaptogens are known to improve energy, immune support and provide stress relief.

The sources above provide an in-depth scientific view of the multiple phases of research connected with Adaptogens that have been done over the years. Each source should give the reader better insight into how the knowledge of Adaptogens has expanded. This, in turn, leads to a better understanding of how it may provide greater health and homeostasis in the body.
