What is an Adaptogen?

What are Adaptogens and why are they important?
Adaptogenic herbs have been used for centuries. Today, adaptogens are even more important to be taking for their properties which help your body adapt to biological and psychological stress by making it easier for you to balance your hormonal systems. 
Adaptogens are defined as "agents which help an organism to counteract any adverse effects of a physical, chemical or biological stressor by generating nonspecific resistance" 
Adaptogens are used to improve the health of your adrenal system, the system that is in charge of managing your body's resistance to stress. They help enhance your body's ability to cope with anxiety and fight fatigue. Adaptogens are generally safe for everyone, so no need to worry about exactly which one fits you the best, they can all have beneficial influences on you.
