Balance Adrenals with Adaptogens
For the stressed-out community, I want to tell you about a super cool herb. It's an herb that will help ease stress, increase your endurance, and build up your energy levels.
It's called Rhodiola rosea and it is so much better for you than a cup of coffee or tea because it nourishes your adrenals.
Rhodiola Is An Adaptogen
Back in the day, my herbal intern Lindsay took it every morning in tincture form while attending school to become a Naturopath. Even though she didn't like the taste, she performed like a rockstar, handling all the turns and twists of med school. Lindsay loved not having to suffer afternoon burnout anymore.
My New Favorite Rhodiola Source
My favorite way to take Rhodiola is in powder form. In fact, I recently released a new adaptogenic powdered blend called Winning Streak in my Guts & Glory Apothecary. And, you guessed it, Rhodiola is one of the stars of the show.
I created this proprietary blend because I couldn't find something this effective anywhere. I waited to get this premium adaptogenic blend out on the market until I had the balance just right. This process took me two years.
A Look Inside Winning Streak
I took my passion for the healing power of adaptogens to the next level with this creation. Winning Streak is a hand-crafted, small batch, powdered blend. It is ready to use as an herbal addition in your morning smoothie. Filled with the highest quality ingredients, Winning Streak a daily tonic you take in with your food, not just another pill in a handful of daily supplement capsules to swallow.
I love powders and actually prefer them to capsules for a couple of reasons. First, I get to be highly transparent with my ingredients. Winning Streak is made up of five powerful adaptogenic herbs – Rhodiola, Ashwagandha, Fo-Ti, Codonopsis, and Eleuthero. Nothing more.
The thing I like most about using this blend is that no matter how stressed out I am, I won't get to a breaking point. I stay even keel and am way more productive. And it doesn’t interfere with my sleep like coffee does.
How Adaptogens Support The Adrenal Glands
Adaptogens like the ones featured in Winning Streak are herbs that support the adrenal glands. Adrenal glands are the main source of adrenaline production in the body.
Your ability to handle stress is directly correlated with your body’s ability to produce, and then break down, adrenaline. The ability to break down adrenaline is impaired in people with anxiety or those who suffer from panic attacks.
Cortisol is a major stress hormone. It ages the body and prematurely breaks tissues down. Adaptogens help the body eliminate cortisol so that relaxation and rest are possible. People with lower levels of cortisol feel safer and experience less disease.
Rhodiola Is A Perfect Choice For Entrepreneurs
Entrepreneurs tend to stress easily. Due to that stress, they need something to keep them from turning to coffee. Coffee breaks the body down, increases stress, and strips minerals. That's why I always recommend Rhodiola and adaptogenic blends to help support entrepreneurs as they build their viable business.
This is especially true for health coaches, because they need to walk the talk and not secretly drink cappuccinos behind their clients’ backs while telling them to cut caffeine out.
Adaptogens Work To Support Healing From Most Symptoms
I recommend Rhodiola to people who are recovering from most health concerns. Symptom reduction indicates that the body is healing and that alone takes extra metabolic work. By supporting the adrenals and building energy levels naturally, you will speed up the healing process naturally.
As with any herb, I recommend you introduce Rhodiola and other adaptogenic blends slowly. If you feel wired or erratic, you may be sensitive to them. If so, you can choose a more gentle adaptogen like holy basil.
