Wildcrafted Collection Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT ARE ADAPTOGENS?
Adaptogens are non-toxic mushrooms and super-herbs that greatly improve your body's ability to combat stress, balance hormones, and lower inflammation. They work to exert a normalizing effect on the body associated with regulation of homeostasis, your body’s internal thermostat. Adaptogens have a unique ability to promote function according to your body’s specific needs. Your brain-adrenal (HPA) axis, brain-thyroid (HPT) and brain-gonadal axis (HPG) need to work in perfect harmony for a healthy mood, metabolism, energy, and immune system. Our adaptogenic blends work together to normalize and balance your body.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS ORGANIC?
As a company, we are proud of organic commitment. We believe that when it comes to the health and wellbeing of our communities, organics should be the first and only choice. Our ingredients are organically farmed or found in the wild in their purest form. Our purveyors source these super herbs and mushrooms from their native lands where they are harvested at their peak maturity for potency. Those that are forged in the wild are natural herbs gathered free of herbicides, pesticides, detergents and other harmful chemicals. Our purveyors review plant materials, contract with family of farmers, review harvesting sites and always take the health of our customers and the environment into serious consideration. We must all work towards supporting the organic movement which will help increase access to responsible and sustainable farming.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS VEGAN?
100% of our Wildcrafted products are vegan.
HOW SHOULD I USE WILDCRAFTED ADAPTOGENS?
Our favorite way to enjoy Wildcrafted is in our morning coffee or matcha latte. Wildcrafted can also be mixed into smoothies, tea or water. We love to sneak it into cashew or coconut yogurt, dairy-free dressings or our staff favorite, raw almond butter cups.
CAN I USE MORE THAN ONE WILDCRAFTED ADAPTOGEN AT THE SAME TIME?
Yes! We recommend experimenting with our blends to find what combination works best for your body. Everyone's needs and results are different.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE YOUR PRODUCTS?
Usage is ultimately based on your body’s needs! Daily incorporation of these stress-protective sources helps the body carry out normal processes over time; consistent use helps your body to adapt at a gradual pace. We find ourselves using Wildcrafted 1-2 times a day but recommend taking a break once day per week if using daily for optimal performance and absorption. For some adaptogens, calming benefits are noticed within an hour, but most benefits are seen gradually overtime after consistent use.
