Publisher's Synopsis

Discover the restorative power of adaptogens

In Nature's Apothecary, Medical Herbalist Paula Grainger provides the solution for stress, anxiety and exhaustion by introducing us to a group of healing herbal ingredients known as adaptogens - plants with health-giving properties.

Adaptogens have been scientifically proven to lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol and prevent adrenal imbalances that can lead to fatigue and burnout. In this illustrated guidebook you will delve into the history and science of these miraculous plants and learn how to maximize wellness using the most easy-to-source adaptogens, incorporating them into your life via delicious smoothies, energy bites and desserts, invigorating teas, tonics and lattes and wonderful beauty elixirs.

Covering all the common adaptogens such as Ashwagandha, Maca, Korean ginseng, Turmeric, Liquorice, Rosemary and Rhodiola, this updated edition also contains brand-new recipes and information about the benefits of popular fungal adaptogens including Reishi, Lion's Mane, Cordyceps, Shiitake and Oyster mushrooms.
