What Are Adaptogens?
If you have been in tune to the traditional Ayurveda and Chinese traditions of using plants and herbs for treating ailments and diseases, then you will know what I’m on about. Adaptogens are plant based medicines that are being taken by the hordes of people to help them keep check of their mental and physical wellbeing.
Different adaptogens have different effects on the body, but a few of the benefits to using them include reducing anxiety, fatigue and depression. Not just that, but these plant based derivatives also enhance the working capacity of users even in the midst of heavy undue stress.
Adaptogens also are effective in maintaining a balance in the body, or homeostasis via the sympatho-adrenal system and the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. Both of these systems are responsible in maintaining the body’s response to stress.
CBD + Adaptogen: The Winning Combination?
What is surprising is how much of the abilities of adaptogens, CBD shares. These include the likes of boosting the immune system, soothing anxiety and maintaining balance among the various systems in the body and reducing the effects of tiredness.
People who have taken CBD have reported of reduction in cognitive impairment, comfort in speaking and speech, and an increased sense of alertness! There is sufficient research to back up the claims as well.
The way in which CBD and anxiety works, is by enhancing the production of natural cannabinoids in the body namely serotonin and anandamide. Combining adaptogens and CBD will help produce a synergistic effect that further boosts the individual effects of the two. There is yet to be scientific research, but both are natural in every sense of the word and it may be worth to experiment and see if it works wonders for you!
