Stress will affect most of us sometimes, and it can have a profound mental and physical effect on our bodies. When we experience stress, our adrenal glands produce hormones that influence blood flow, immune response, digestion, and other functions. Long term, or chronic, stress can lead to a host of physical ailments. Adaptogenic plants help the body resist stressors of all kinds, helping lessen the impact of stress.
