The holiday season is here. Cooking, shopping for gifts, travel, endless party invites and menus full of rich foods make the holidays abundant, joyful, and…stressful. We’ve got herbs for that.
Adaptogen Balance is a blend of adaptogenic leaves, roots, mushrooms, and berries. Holy basil, reishi, ashwagandha, and goji berry work to help your body respond to and adapt to stress. This makes it the ideal formula for holiday season.
Now is a great time to ready ourselves for the onset of stress. A daily dose of Adaptogen Balance from now until the new year is the perfect gift to yourself this holiday season.
It nourishes and supports your nervous, endocrine, and immune system, which increases your resistance to stress. It even gives you a little boost so you can find the energy to politely decline the 47th party invite, or muster the enthusiasm to show up and actually enjoy yourself.
For the holiday season, here is one of our favorite mocktails from Liz Moody made with the calm of Adaptogen Balance, tart cranberries and woodsy rosemary. It’s the perfect low-alcohol drink to accompany your holiday menu (Adaptogen Balance is not alcohol free as it’s extracted in organic cane alcohol). Because, you know, booze is fun but not exaclty a stress-fighter.
Adaptogen Balance helps your body resist stress and herbs like rosemary help your digestive system process foods that are higher in fat and sugar than maybe you’re used to.
