Chaga: A Superfood Fungus
Chaga belongs to a group of herbs, mushrooms, and roots called adaptogens. They are used in teas and recipes to combat stress, support adrenal function and boost the immune system. It’s important to note that the chaga mushroom has the highest level of antioxidants on the ORAC scale of any natural food.
Clear the (Brain) Fog with Ginseng
Ginseng is a root that is widely used for its ability to boost stamina while reducing anxiety. That’s because ginseng is able to both calm and stimulate the nervous system. It’s a useful herb for anyone suffering from lack of energy and mental clarity.
Rooibos Immunity Booster
If your immune system needs a jolt, look no further than rooibos tea. Rooibos contains its own unique polyphenol called Aspalathin, full of antioxidants that are responsible for this tea’s immune system boosting properties.
Star of the Show
Star Anise has a sweet, uplifting licorice aroma and flavor. It is used in both sweet and savory cooking, from muffins to 5-Spice Chicken. But this star-shaped spice is also an adaptogen with its own powerful restorative benefits. Star anise is full of antioxidants that help combat oxidative stress. It also contains antiviral properties that fight infection and harmful bacteria. Since the gut is the epicenter of the immune system, including this herb, can help keep bad bacteria in the gut in check while promoting balance.
