What are Adaptogens and Why Do We Need Them?

"Adaptogens are the mini stress-vaccine you can take each and every day!"


They are a special class of herbs, roots and mushrooms that help our bodies balance varying levels of stress, support our adrenal systems, and normalize adrenal function. These superstars have been used in remedies for thousands of years around the globe but only recently has their power been acknowledged and accepted here in the modern western culture. 

Now more than ever, our quest for health and wellness, in the midst of a busy and chaotic world, lead us to look to our past, for ancient practices and helpful remedies.

We’ve learned that adaptogens each have their own superpowers so variety in their consumption is key. That's why here at māla girl each and every blend we produce is packed full of anywhere from 15-20 super-food, adaptogenic, ingredients! These ingredients have been shown to:

  • Help regulate blood sugar
  • Support the immune system
  • Manage hormone levels
  • Help to stabilize blood pressure!
Studies coming out of the Swedish Herbal Institute Research & Development show that adaptogens not only help to fight both physical and emotional fatigue,  but can help to motive and stimulate mental capacity and clarity, and decrease feelings of depression.

Some of the more popular adapotgens include ashwagandha, goji berry, maca, turmeric, ginseng, and lion's mane mushroom but these only scratch the surface of what you can find packed into māla girl blends! Here at māla girl we offer drinkable plants with no animal parts!
