Adaptogens. Have you heard of these? Not really? Adaptogens are herbs that help your body "adapt" to stress. Used in Indian Ayurvedic medicine for hundreds of years, Ashwagandha is a powerful antioxidant with both antibacterial and antimicrobial properties that work to prevent oxidative stress and cell breakdown while actively fending off external stressors, pollutants, and irritants for your skin's health. Ashwagandha contains alkaloids and lactones which give it its anti-stress properties.
