Menopause Relief is not new here. Adaptogens are not a new topic here. Yet, because the impression I have is that many women in our community have heard the word, they would have a hard time defining the term for a friend. 

So in fact you’ll hear me ask that straight off and that was for you. If you’re new to adaptogens you’ll be in good company. If you’ve been using them for years right along with me.. I think it was 2014 when I first introduced maca to our audience… but there’s so much more here. We’ll open the door to mushrooms, herbs, and more. I’ve got the perfect resource if you’re looking for more after this episode. 


My favorite spot in this episode is the way that Danielle explained adaptogens contribution to energy levels and menopause relief. We get to it about ¾ of the way through and I promise, it’s all good before and after too!
