Restore balance and help your body manage stress with more than 65 simple adaptogenic recipes.Adaptogens are medicinal herbs, plants, and fungi originally used in centuries-old traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic healing traditions that biologically increase the body’s capacity to handle physical, mental, and emotional stress. They adapt to the needs of the body in order to decrease inflammation, restore inner harmony, and promote optimal health. Adaptogens can also increase energy and libido, boost immunity, and fight depression and anxiety. This no-fuss beginner’s guide uses these natural supplements in more than 65 delicious smoothies, juices, soups, and stews for a myriad of different health benefits. The book also includes a quick primer on the properties of each commonly-used adaptogen. Aswagandha and ginseng soothe long-term sources of stress, reishi and astralagus strengthen the immune system, and licorice and tulsi improve gut health, among many others. Recipes range from libido-boosting smoothies with maca root powder, flu-fighting soups, and revitalizing tonics. Set up your mind and body for wellness with adaptogens.
