These days, every condiment, protein powder, snack or spread can be an opportunity to infuse consumers' lives with holistically nourishing ingredients. To help you up your adaptogen game, I've compiled five products that combine modernized packaging and trendy ingredients with old-world wisdom.
Flora Ex Machina Royal Ghee
This whipped spread consists of raw honey, ghee, greens and an impressive cocktail of adaptogens. Reishi, maitake, shiitake, chaga and turkey tail extracts– all trendy heavyweights in the world of mushroom supplements–make an appearance, in addition to moringa, chlorella and wheat grass. It's also incredibly multifunctional–consumers can incorporate it into coffee, lattes or smoothies or use it as a topping on toast, oatmeal and baked goods.
Super Adapt Tea Burnout Blocker
Super Adapt Tea has an impressive line of adaptogen-based teas meant to help with everything from hormone struggles to stress to overall feelings of wellness. These sippable, all-organic hot beverages also contain flavor additives such as all-natural hibiscus, licorice and dates for a touch of sweetness. Burnout Blocker in particular lets organic cinnamon, ginger, dates, cordyceps and chaga shine in its blend in order to stave off fatigue and boost energy.
Prana Organic Maca Powder
This adaptogen-laced "superfood bark" contains maca–an ingredient that supports healthy energy levels, memory and mood–in addition to Fair Trade dark chocolate, ancient grain crispy corn flakes maple flakes and crunchy almonds. The bag is sealable and contains bite-sized chunks of bark for easy, quick bites of chocolatey goodness–think of it as the natural product industry's answer to Ritter Sport's Milk Chocolate with Cornflakes.
COCORAU CBD Sublime Elixir
COCORAU's blended Sublime CBD Elixer contains immune-enhancing adaptogens such as Astralagus, Eleuthero and Rhodiola in addition to the lesser- known Maqui berry, and can be added into any liquid or food of choice. The CBD isolate is 12 mg per tablespoon. All ingredients are certified organic, non-GMO and sourced from a small-scale farm in Hudson, New York.
Urban Monk Nutrition Rising Energy
Intended as an alternative to consumers' morning coffees, Rising Energy by Urban Monk harnesses the power of maca, guayasa, L-Theanine, shilajit, tulsi, rhodiola and much more to fuel bodies with natural energy throughout the day. For consumers who wish to make the switch from jitter-inducing caffeinated beverages, this easy-to-use and efficacious blend can be taken wherever and whenever to promote calm alterness.
