What are Adaptogens and Nootropics?

adaptogens and nootropics

Adaptogens and Nootropics (no-eh-tro-piks) have been around us for many, many years, and today they are often used interchangeably. 

Adaptogens are known to be from plants and herbs, and work to help your body in handling mental and physical stress. Nootropics can come both in natural and synthetic form, and are known to improve cognitive performance. 

Ginseng, Holy Basil, Caffeine, and Turmeric, are common adaptogens and nootropics.

We use a blend of Lemon Balm (adaptogen) and L-Theanine (a natural nootropic amino acid found in green tea) to help create a better-for-you drinking experience. Both work to promote feelings of calmness and relaxation, as well as provide other physical and mental benefits.
