I first heard the word ADAPTOGENIC when I started taking Moon Balance and learning about the herbs in it. But what are adaptogenic herbs? They are a group of nontoxic plant herbs including some mushrooms that help support the body’s natural ability to deal with stress. The body uses adaptogens to help protect against mental, physical and emotional stress. I love learning about all these herbs and trying supplements containing them. Most recently I tried Moon Balance that has Shatavari and Maca in it. My article what is Shatavari explains many details about the herb Shatavari and how Moon Balance has helped me.
