Adaptogens for Energy
Daily supplementation of Adaptogenic Herbs helps reduce the release of stress hormones your HPA axis produces. When your body has less stress to deal with, you have more energy to do the things you love - like sweating it out. AND the things that you maybe don’t love, but have to get done anyways.
Where does Matcha come into play? It blocks the release of cortisol by smoke-signaling to the amygdala that fight or flight isn't needed, despite the dose of caffeine. (Magic)
Here’s what a clinical review by the Frontiers of Neuroscience is concluding about adaptogens.

“A common feature for all tested adaptogens was their effect on G-protein-coupled receptor signaling pathways, i.e., cAMP, phospholipase C (PLC), and phosphatidylinositol signal transduction pathways. Adaptogens may reduce the cAMP level in brain cells by down-regulation of adenylate cyclase gene ADC2Y and up-regulation of phosphodiesterase gene PDE4D that is essential for energy homeostasis as well as for switching from catabolic to anabolic states and vice versa.”

The takeaway? Adaptogens control the production of a gene that enhances and controls normal energy production. Basically, adaptogens increase energy by reducing the stress on your genes.
Less gene stress can help to retain the health of your DNA, promote longevity, and slow the aging process. When you reduce the levels of stress your body has to mitigate at a cellular level, you directly increase the amount of ATP energy you have up for grabs and help bolster your metabolic efficiency.
An Adaptogen for the job
