A supplement for today's stressful times
April 28, 2020 Report
As a mom of three kids, life can be stressful at times. Add in anxiety, which runs in our family and a global pandemic and we're in unchartered territories.
Adaptogens can help our bodies adapt to stressful situations. Certain herbs can help how our bodies react to stress and also how we recover from it. They can also help to boost immunity, help with fatigue and aid in mental clarity.
AdaptDaily: Restore from Kiki Naturals combines a natural blend of adaptogens such as Ashwagandha, Amla, Holy Basil and Reishi to provide all of the benefits mentioned. All ingredients are natural, certified organic, non-gmo, vegan and gluten free (which is important in our celiac household). They are the first Health Canada approved adaptogenic gummy available.
The gummies use stevia and black carrot juice to sweeten them. They smell rich and fruity - quite similar to prunes actually. I find the taste a little strong and bitter and while I'm not really a fan of the taste, the benefits far outweigh any complaints I may have. I've noticed I'm not waking up as much through the night and I'm not clenching my jaw when sleeping which means I'm feeling more rested in the mornings.
I'm still feeling some anxiety and stress, but that's not surprising with quarantine and lockdowns. I'm hoping with continued use I will see even more benefits.
