fruiting body mushroom extracts.
roots apothecary mushrooms extracts are made 100% from the fruiting body. there's debate about the therapeutic potential of mycelium biomass, but as an expert in this industry for 10+ years, we understand the most reliable therapeutic potency comes from 100% fruiting body extracts. this is where you get the highest concentrations of beta-glucans that modulate immune and inflammatory response and active compounds like the published and famed erinacines and hericenones that give lion's mane its neuroprotective, neurotropic and neuroplastic properties. if you want the highest and most consistent therapeutic potential, fruiting body is the way to go.
>30% beta-d-glucan <5% starch | zero grain. zero filler. zero preservatives.
super greens blend.
health and performance are largely defined by our ability to navigate life's inevitable obstacles without accumulating damage from ongoing stress. our company is built around the concept of increasing adaptive capacity and restoring parasympathetic balance. this is, without question, one of the most impactful ways to improve overall mind-body health and performance. stress is inevitable, and in some cases, it's highly beneficial to our development. however, without parasympathetic balance, the consequences become maladaptive as fundamentals of health erode.
adaptogens help prevent a dramatic response to stress to protect our nervous system, cellular integrity, energy and resources. reducing sympathetic intensity and duration means more resources are available to provide proactive, parasympathetic balance.
states of high tension or exhaustion leave little mental or physical space to take on new challenges. even processing each day's information through a productive lens becomes tiresome. high tension and exhaustion are unsustainable and will wear on your quality of life. by reducing the time spent in states of high stress, adaptogens create more mental and physical bandwidth.
getting water and electrolytes across the cell membrane is key to all cellular functions and plays a critical role in immediate performance and long-term health. hydrated cells can clear metabolic toxins more efficiently, produce ATP, support mitochondrial health and are more resilient to oxidative stress and inflammation.
hydrated cells also maintain better communication with one another, which is critical to any functional system. good communication and intracellular "housekeeping" helps networks identify and replace damaged cells before they're replicated. in a nutshell, aging can be defined as the replication of damaged cells and genetic material. to the contrary, the better your cells repair and replace damages, the slower you age.
allow us to introduce: bacopa and lion's mane - two brain-boosting powerhouses. our main goal with these ingredients is to support cognitive function and brain health through raising BDNF and NGF levels, which help drive neurogenesis and neuroplasticity. creating new neurons and improving "flexibility" in existing neural pathways supports the improved ability to create new associations with past, present and future. It also improves working memory, and solidifies new habits. both of these ingredients are known to promote blood flow to the brain and help maintain a "top brain" focus (analytical thinking, creativity, organization and prioritization).
the liver is responsible for far more life-sustaining processes than we give it credit for, and it may be working harder now than ever before. concentrated extracts of dandelion, milk thistle and black pepper provide some protection from oxidative stress and help stimulate liver repair. a liver is better at it's many jobs when it is healthy, including protecting the rest of your organs from toxins that enter the blood.
the takeaway? a healthier liver = a healthier everything.
8x strain probiotic blend.
the importance of gut health can't be overstated. it's amazing that some professionals still downplay the influence of gut health on every aspect of health and performance. that being said, research on microbiota is unveiling a new understanding of what makes a human. this new paradigm is showing that the gut microbiome is paramount in not only digestive health but mental and immune health as well.
you can find probiotic supplements that have higher microbe counts than 4.5 billion CFU, but this is certainly strong enough to have a notable influence on synergistic microbial flora. we believe this is the sweet spot for daily use and sustainable microbiome shifts. also, the diversity of microbes is important. in general, the more diversity (of beneficial microbes) in a probiotic blend, the more well-rounded and sustainable the benefits are. we are all about covering every base.
it's all important.
if you read the above descriptions, it may sound like everything is very important to your health. well, that's the holistic health concept and it's gaining a lot of respect in the medical community. nothing in the mind-body is independent of any other system. it's all significant. compare yourself to a car or a computer (tinker toys compared to the complex workings of the human mind-body).
if you never change the air filter in your car or computer, they will run fine for a while. but as dust accumulates on the filter, the engine of your car doesn't get optimal fuel-oxygen ratio and your performance suffers. paying attention and being proactive about maintenance will result in a high-functioning, well-tuned mind-body.
our goal is serving our client's journey to improved health, wellness and performance. if the adaptive greens doesn't meet your expectations of quality or therapeutic value, just return it. while we will accept returns for any reason, we ask that you judge these products for their functional / therapeutic effects. most people will notice measurable progress within the first two weeks. some products work faster than others, but our concept is built around strengthening baseline health over symptomatic intervention. give these products a good two weeks of consistency before judging. if you stop after the first week because you don't feel better yet, you're leaving a lot of potential on the table.
