Adaptogenic Bulletproof Coffee

Adaptogenic coffee recipe and content provided by Jordan Pie

Adapto-what? Adaptogens are a unique group of herbal ingredients that can be used to improve and help strengthen the body’s response to stress, enhance its ability to cope with anxiety and fight fatigue in a slow and gentle way without jolts or crashes.[1]

They’re called adaptogens because of their unique ability to adapt their function according to your body’s specific needs. Mucuna pruriens is the adaptogen of choice for this coffee recipe because, as nature’s answer to Adderall, it’ll help you power through your day. It contains an ingredient called L-dopa, which is the precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine. Dopamine has been linked with sound sleep, enhanced brain function, elevated moods, a more balanced nervous system as well as supporting overall well-being. It’s also a libido-booster and fertility treatment. [2] (Read more about the benefits of mucuna pruriens here.)

Though the effects of consuming adaptogenic herbs may initially be subtle and take time to make themselves felt, they’re real and absolutely undeniable. Sip this adaptogenic coffee drink and see the results.
