When our body is exposed to stress, it triggers a cascade of hormonal and physiological responses that can lead to imbalance and disruption within the body's internal environment.

Adaptogenic plants contain compounds proven to help regulate these responses and restore balance, thus promoting homeostasis (the concept of maintaining internal balance or stability within the body despite external changes or challenges).

Nootropic plants, on the other hand, are natural substances that enhance cognitive function, such as memory, creativity, and motivation. These plants contain compounds proven to support brain health and function, which includes improving blood flow to the brain and increasing the production of certain neurotransmitters.


What are the main benefits of adaptogens?

- Reduce stress by maintaining cortisol levels (the stress hormone)
- Combat mental or physical fatigue
- Enhance physical performance (physical endurance and improved energy levels)
- Increase attention span
- Balance hormone levels
- Strengthen the immune system
- Improve the functioning of bodily systems, such as the gastrointestinal system 

Benefits of natural nootropics

Natural nootropic herbs have been a part of traditional Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. Nootropic compounds can be divided into two categories - those that have a powerful direct effect on neurotransmitter levels (such as L-theanine and caffeine), and those that primarily support mental function by influencing factors contributing to brain health. Examples include the growth of new brain cells, myelination, protection against oxidative stress, and the reduction of brain tissue inflammation (ginkgo biloba, turmeric, B vitamins, and green tea). The latter need to be taken consistently for optimal cognitive performance enhancement.


Cordyceps Sinensis 

Common name : cordyceps

Family name: ophiocordycipitaceae

Classification: adaptogen

Extracted part of the plant: body

Geographical origin: Switzerland

Culture: sustainable farming, on insects

Taste: mild mushroom, champignon de Paris

Benefits: cordyceps has played a significant role in traditional Chinese and Tibetan medicine for over 1,000 years, used to treat a variety of conditions, including respiratory disorders and kidney and liver diseases. Today's botanists are turning to cordyceps to increase stamina and energy, and as a potent boost for the immune system.

How it works: this parasitic fungus helps to increase the body's production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is essential for delivering energy to cells. This can improve the way the body and brain use oxygen, especially during exercise, and helps foster a healthy immune response by balancing inflammation.

Copaifera officinalis

Common name: copaiba

Family name: fabaceae

Classification: nootropic

Extracted part of the plant: resin

Geographical origin: Amazonia, Brazil

Culture: sustainable farming

Taste: robust, earthly flavor, with notes of honey

Benefits: copaiba acts as an anti-inflammatory, helps to heal infections, provides pain relief, clears skin and combats acne, and lowers blood pressure. It is also thought to have antioxidant and mood-stabilizing properties. Additionally, it can be used topically to reduce the appearance of blemishes and to promote a youthful, radiant glow.

How it works: derived from the resin of the copaiba tree, copaiba contains large amounts of beta-caryophyllene, a molecule that can activate cannabinoid receptors in the skin. This causes skin cells to produce beta-endorphin, known as the happiness hormone due to its ability to block pain and increase feelings of well-being.

Paullinia Cupana

Common name: guarana

Family name: apindaceae

Classification: nootropic

Extracted part of the plant: seeds

Geographical origin: Pará, Brazil

Culture: organic farming

Taste: woody, nutty, slightly bitter

Benefits: Guarana is rich in caffeine, which is known for reducing fatigue and improving focus. Native to Brazil, this powerful plant stimulates the mind and body, including the central nervous system, and works as an attention and cognition enhancer, aphrodisiac, and as an antioxidant.

How it works: The plant's high concentration of caffeine blocks the effects of adenosine, a compound that helps the brain relax. By binding with adenosine receptors and preventing them from being activated, levels of alertness and dopamine rise, stimulating cognitive function and boosting mood.

Curcuma longa

Common name: turmeric

Family name: zingiberaceae

Classification: adaptogen

Geographical origin: Amazonia, Brazil

Culture: organic farming

Benefits: Curcumin is a compound found in turmeric, which has been used as a spice and medicinal herb for centuries across India and other parts of Asia. The main active ingredient of curcumin is known for its varying health benefits, most notably its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It has the potential to manage oxidative and inflammatory conditions, metabolic syndrome, arthritis, and anxiety, and can help reduce the risk of heart disease.

How it works: The compound aids the body in preventing damage caused by cell oxidation, which can lead to chronic inflammation and age-related conditions, such as cancer and heart disease. Curcumin's anti-inflammatory properties can also reduce pain and ease movement by inhibiting the body's key inflammatory markers.

Zingiber Officinalis

Common name: ginger

Extracted part of the plant: rhizome

Family name: zingiberaceae

Classification: adaptogen

Geographical origin: Southern China

Culture: sustainable farming

Taste: highly spicy, citrus, woody

Benefits: zingiber officinalis, more commonly known as ginger, boasts numerous benefits for both mind and body. Aside from its powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, ginger is renowned for aiding digestion, relieving nausea and menstrual pain, and lowering cholesterol. Other potential benefits include reducing arthritis and lowering blood sugar levels, with recent studies also demonstrating its ability to manage several conditions, including heart and neurodegenerative diseases.

How it works: ginger aids the digestive system by breaking up gas, increasing digestive enzyme activity and relieving bloating and irritation through its anti-inflammatory properties. These properties combine with antioxidants to protect the immune system from infections and chronic diseases. Ginger works wonders in the brain too, increasing blood flow, raising serotonin and dopamine levels, and combatting free radical damage.
