Adaptogens to the Rescue
Adaptogenic herbs are a class of herbs that are believed to help increase the body’s resilience to stressors and support homeostasis within the body and mind. The Reishi mushroom is known for its adaptogenic abilities that are beneficial to anyone looking for sleep, stress, or relaxation support. Adaptogenic herbs like the Reishi mushroom help support an optimal response by regulating stress hormones like cortisol.
The Reishi mushroom is high in antioxidants helping to promote longevity and immune system support.
Reishi calm elixir is caffeine-free so it is non-stimulating and perfect for the evening when you want to relax the mind. The flavor is earthy with subtle hints of date, goji berry and monk fruit.
Other adaptogenic herbs include:
- Holy Basil
- Licorice Root
For a frothy, coffee-like drink without the stimulant effect, reishi tea crystals pair with almond extract, a drizzle of honey, and frothed almond milk. The result is an aromatic, nutty tea latte that soothes with every sip. Honey balances the earthy flavor of Reishi tea, but maple syrup will also taste great. This recipe is naturally dairy-free, ideal for anyone with sensitivities to lactose.
