What is an adaptogen? Adaptogens have been used for thousands of years throughout the world. They are a broad family of herbs and plant medicines with healing properties. Adaptogens can help balance, restore and protect the body from chronic stress. In this particular latte, the adaptogens used are Maca, Suma, and Chlorella. This combination can help to promote healthy and sustained energy levels, strengthen the immune system and promote overall well-being. The matcha is an excellent source for antioxidants and may help with calmness, boosting metabolism and also support immunity.
When I look to incorporate adaptogens into my routine, I make sure to buy brands that are organic and of high quality. The YourSuper brand, is a particular favorite of mine because they are certified organic, non gmo, GF, vegan, dairy free, soy and 3rd party tested.
Sit back, relax and enjoy some matcha.
