Restore Hormonal Balance: Adaptogen Herbs for the Endocrine System

Adaptogen herbs promote proper endocrine system function, making them useful for hormonal imbalance. The word adaptogen [adap·to·gen] is defined as “a nontoxic substance and especially a plant extract that is held to increase the body’s ability to resist the damaging effects of stress and promote or restore normal physiological functioning.” This stress can be physical, emotional, biological/physiological, or environmental.

Adaptogenic herbs help the body “adapt” to stress in order to:

  • regulate stress hormone production to maintain healthy organ function during stress
  • increase resistance to stress
  • boost immune system health to reduce incidents of and prevent illness

We’ve created this infograph to show you some of the most popular adaptogen herbs both men and women can consider on their fertility journey. For more information and other tips for naturally supporting hormonal balance, please visit our guide Restore Hormonal Balance for Improved Fertility.
