From the author of Best Green Drinks Ever, a primer and cookbook for adaptogens

Natural remedies for various physical ailments are well known; now hitting the scene are supplements—made from berries, mushrooms, herbs, and other plants— that can help the body (and mind) adapt to stress. These “adaptogens” work towards restoring balance, enhancing focus and stamina, boosting energy, and improving mood. In Super Powders, health coach Katrine van Wyk takes 20 adaptogens and describes what they are and how to use them. She might recommend goji berries for mood, astragalus for immunity, reishi and moringa for anxiety relief. Then van Wyk shares the dozens of recipes she’s developed, including:

  • Golden Good Morning Milk with astragalus and reishi
  • Unbeatable Brownies with ashwagandha, goji, and maca
  • Meaningful Matcha with cordyceps and moringa

Adaptogens should be part of every healthy person’s routine, and this appealing book can reveal everything you need to know to get started.
