Life is pretty stressful. Our bodies and minds are often pushed to their limits, navigating stressors with the agility of a world-class gymnast.

For women, the challenge doubles. 

We’re dealing with changing hormones while also balancing careers and the mental load at home (1).

Enter adaptogens. These natural resources offer a harmony between our bodies and the stressors of the external world. But what are adaptogens? Why should they be a staple in the wellness toolkit of every woman? 

Let's dive into the science, benefits, and essential tidbits you need to know about these botanical champions.

What Exactly Are Adaptogens?

Adaptogens are a select group of herbs and mushrooms that support your body's ability to handle stress, whether it's physical, chemical, or biological (2). They're like your body's personal stress-management consultants, working to normalize your physiological functions and bring balance back to your system. Think of them as the calm, collected friend who knows exactly what to say to soothe your nerves during a crisis.

The Science Behind the Magic

The magic of adaptogens lies in their ability to modulate the adrenal system(3), which controls your hormonal response to stress. They act at the molecular level by balancing the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis (3) and regulating cortisol levels (4), the body's primary stress hormone. By fine-tuning your body's stress response, adaptogens don't just mask symptoms; they go to the root of the problem, fostering resilience in the face of stress.

Why Women, Especially, Should Take Note

For women, the appeal of adaptogens extends beyond their stress-busting capabilities. Our hormonal landscape changes throughout the menstrual cycle, influencing mood, energy, and overall well-being. Adaptogens, with their balancing act, can be particularly beneficial in supporting the body's natural rhythms and hormonal fluctuations (5, 6). Whether it's the fatigue and discomfort of the early follicular phase or the emotional rollercoaster of the late luteal phase, adaptogens can provide a steadying hand.

Things to Keep in Mind

Before you dive into the world of adaptogens, here are a few pointers:

  • Consult a Healthcare Professional: Especially important if you're pregnant, breastfeeding, or have health conditions.
  • Quality Matters: Opt for high-quality, organic products from reputable sources to ensure purity and potency.
  • Patience is Key: Adaptogens work gradually, so give them time to weave their magic.

The Science of Synergy

The brilliance behind the Soothe Supplements range lies in its foundation of scientific research and understanding of female biology.

Soothe contains Ashwagandha, known for its adaptogenic properties, which can significantly reduce stress and anxiety, which are common during menstruation. Its ability to improve mood and manage fatigue is particularly beneficial for combating the emotional and physical changes that occur during this phase. Additionally, Ashwagandha's positive impact on sleep can help alleviate insomnia or disturbed sleep patterns. The inclusion of black pepper enhances the bioavailability of Ashwagandha, ensuring more effective absorption and results. You can take Soothe daily for up to three months as per the current recommendations at time of publish.
