Do Adaptogens Work? | Chow | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Do Adaptogens Work?

A few weeks ago, I wrote about adaptogens and their promise of reducing stress. I ended my article saying I would do a two-week experiment to see if they would bliss me out. Each day I added a teaspoon of adaptogens—the Moon Juice Power Dust—to a fresh fruit, Greek yogurt and coconut milk smoothie. After several weeks my stress level has reduced a little. Maybe because I just got a puppy? I do know I feel better overall and will continue to have that smoothie for lunch. How's that for a definitive answer?
