So why haven’t you heard of adaptogen herbs before? Well, you probably have. Asian Ginseng is one of the most common and most potent adaptogen herbs on the market, and it can help improve memory, mental clarity as well as reduce stress and improve your immune system. Holy basil is also an adaptogen that can be a strong weapon against stress, and because it is a member of the mint family, it also soothes and calms your body and mind. Rosemary—yes the same rosemary you use in your cooking—also has adaptogen properties; it also supports heart, liver and digestive health.

Most of these adaptogen herbs can be consumed in a variety of forms, ranging from multi-vitamins to supplements to extracts to herbal teas. And while most forms are safe for consumption, it’s a good idea to talk to your healthcare provider or a natural medicine expert before self-diagnosing your medical conditions or taking any actions to improve your health.
