Feeling stressed? Load up on these adaptogen-infused supplements. Whether you prefer a capsule, a powder, a gummy, a drink or a tincture, we’ve rounded up a Zen-booster for every preference and price point.
Sakara Rx: The Foundation ($120)
Included in each daily pack of six plant-based pills is an Adaptogenic B-Complex with ashwagandha for stress and cognitive support, as well as an energy spurt.
The bio-fermented blend of holy basil, ashwagandha and papaya in this water mix-in not only reduces fatigue, but also helps revitalize stressed skin.
Elements Vitality Drink ($42 for 12 cans)
Formulated with clinically effective levels of both Asian ginseng and rhodiola, this citrusy, tea-like drink can help put a little pep in your step when you’re feeling drained.
This ceremonial-grade matcha blend is an easy way to introduce stress-reducing ashwagandha into your morning caffeine routine, and also includes brain-boosting Lion’s Mane and moringa leaf.
Instead of reaching for candy when stress hits you late afternoon, chew on two of these cherry-flavored gummies instead. Based on a third-party clinical study of 98 participants, those who received 125mg of Sensoril ashwagandha—the same type and amount in two of these gummies—each day for 60 days collectively reported a 62 percent reduction in stress symptoms.
BareOrganics Calming Liquid Drops ($13.50)
A quick and easy way to quiet a worried mind, one dropper full of this sugar-free tincture delivers organic cordyceps, ashwagandha, eleuthero, lemon balm, and holy basil to the blood vessels for a noticeable calming effect.
HAIRtamin IMMUNEtamin ($25 for one-month supply)
Google searches for immune and respiratory vitamins have surged in response to the pandemic, and this new one from HAIRtamin—makers of the popular hair-boosting capsules and gummies—is joining the results pool. Its blend of 18 bio-available vitamins, minerals, probiotics, adaptogens—Turkey Tail mushroom, ashwagandha and astralagus—and antioxidants delivers all of the good while helping the body ward off all of the bad.
Goli Nutrition Ashwagandha Gummies (Starting at $19)
On the heels of its innovative and wildly successful ACV gummy launch last year, Goli is back in the spotlight with its new Zen-inducing Ashwagandha gummies. Inside each berry-flavored, gelatin-free chew is also vitamin D2, antioxidant-rich berries and pectin, which helps support gut health, for a well-rounded daily supplement.
For those who prefer to get their daily multivitamin in powder form—adding it to a morning smoothie makes it easy—this one not only provides stress protection with ashwagandha and mushrooms, but also the power of leafy greens and other nutrients. Brand founder Kate Hudson says she created it “as a premium-sourced supplement for everyone. It’s your daily multivitamins and greens, all derived from real plants.”
CBD tinctures aren’t just for winding down at the end of a long day. This daytime version marries the calming properties of CBD with energizing adaptogens to create a calm-alert feeling with less anxiousness and more focus. It helps shield your body from any stress you might encounter during the 9–5 and beyond, whether that’s work, child care or anything else.
