Myriad studies show the effects of stress to be one of the highest causes of disease in the body. While making essential lifestyle changes to eliminate excess stress is the #1 way to combat the impact stress can have on the body, there are many easy-to-find herbal remedies gaining mainstream traction as an optimal way to support the body’s ability to heal and repair after a demanding day.

Ashwagandha

This adaptogenic ayurvedic powerhouse works by helping the body’s immune system adapt – hence the name adaptogen – to physical or psychological stress by reducing inflammation and calming the brain. Add it to coffee or tea to support the body during a day of back-to-back meetings and commitments. Try: Moon Juice Spirit Dust in a morning latte to target stress and brighten mood.

Lemon balm

Lemon balm is an herb in the mint family that contains a compound known as rosmarinic acid that has powerful antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. Lemon balm helps ease a number of conditions including anxiety, insomnia, and even digestive distress. Lemon balm can be taken as a tea or tincture, and can also be enjoyed as an essential oil to calm and soothe nervous conditions (opt for organic brands that include its plant genus, in this case Melissa officianalis).

Eleuthero

This adaptogen is a relative of ginseng used commonly in folk medicine as a healing remedy for thousands of years. It is most commonly used to support cognitive function and for athletic performance enhancement, though additional applications include heart disease prevention, relief from anxiety and depression, and recovery from periods of burnout. This herb can be taken as a tea, tincture, or in capsule form. Try: Moon Juice Power Dust in coffee or tea to support the body during a demanding workday.

Cordyceps

This bioactive “supershroom” has long been a staple in Chinese medicine and for good reason. It helps the body handle stress and supports a healthy immune response. It is traditionally used to sustain energy, physical stamina and support healthy lung capacity. It can be taken as a powder, mixed into smoothies and beverages, in capsule form, or as a tincture. Look for organically grown and hand harvested options without any additional fillers added. Try: Moon Juice Power Dust in a smoothie for a total body wellness boost.
