The Science of Adaptogens

Adaptogens are a category of superfoods that promote resiliency and energy under times of stress. They help keep our stress response (our "neuroendocrine-immune system") within an optimal range.

While exact definitions continue to evolve, the word "adaptogen" relates to the concept of physiological adaptation. Adaptogens can help prevent and treat stress-related challenges, including fatigue, anxiety, and poor sleep.

Like exercise, adaptogens train our immune and neuroendocrine systems to respond more effectively to external stressors. At hekate, we believe that nutrition starts at the foundation. We formulate products that support the body's natural defence systems and don't try to override them. Adaptogens are wellness and performance superfoods, regardless of your age, lifestyle, or diet.
