Stress can manifest in a number of ways – it might be trouble focusing, difficulty sleeping, or hyper vigilance. But when I also started losing hair by the handful this past year – I knew I needed something else.

Adding an adaptogen to my supplement regimen did the trick but I had more questions. How do they work? Is it just mushrooms? Are they all created equal?

So I reached out to Samantha Attard – an Ayurvedic coach and yoga instructor with a PHD in nutrition who is sharing everything she knows about adaptogens and how to get started.
