Adaptogens help our bodies do just that; adapt to stress. They help keep our bodies in a balanced state when they are crumbling due to stress, hormonal swings, or inadequate sleep. Essentially, anything that threatens our happy place can use an assist from adaptogens which are found in the form of whole foods and herbs.
Wellflower has taken adaptogens a step further by creating four distinct formulas that target the four different stages of the reproductive cycle. Whether PMS week finds you with a chin full of acne or menstrual week leaves you depleted, Wellflower's formulas are designed to bring hormones to a place of balance that results in increased well being and energy throughout the entire month.
Modern society graces us with everything from air pollution to constant stimulation via devices of all kinds. We could all use a little support to come back to our natural state of being. Wellfower has brought us whole food, organic, unsweetened formulas to do just this. As a bonus, each formula is delicious and full of flavor whether made latte style or in a smoothie.
We offer the individual formulas if there is one specific week of the month that gives you troubles, but recommend giving the full cycle formula a shot if you are working on longer term imbalances.
