“If you are already stressed, making a change in your life is hard.”

Broadly speaking, adaptogens are a class of herbal and plant ingredients in supplements that claim to help your body adapt to stress in an efficient way. What they specifically do is unclear, because there are at least a dozen or more different ones. Adaptogens comprise a category of herbal medicinal and nutritional products promoting adaptability, resilience, and survival of living organisms in stress. In this episode, Jason Campbell and Dave Rabin talk about the key ideas on the future of adaptogenic technology.

  • Difference between ‘eustress’ and ‘distress’.
  • What happens to your body when you are in distress.
