Ceybon AF: Formulated with Adaptogens for Well-Being

At Ceybon, we formulate our alcohol-free aperitifs to not only taste good but to also support well-being! The incredible herbs we include have been helping people feel better for millennia, and today is no different. Adaptogens are one type of health-promoting herb we include in our formulas—but what is an adaptogen, really?

As herbalists, we know that adaptogenic herbs support our ability to cope with various stressors. Another way to put this is that adaptogens help increase our resistance to physical and emotional stress, ultimately building vitality and reserves. This definition is broad because adaptogens are diverse, and while they have many differences among them, they all help with our ability to cope with the stressors of modern life.

How do Adaptogens work?

It has to do with helping regulate our stress response through our HPA axis, or hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. This neural-hormonal pathway regulates our body’s response to stress. When the body and mind sense danger the HPA axis is upregulated, and certain hormones, like adrenaline and cortisol, are sent throughout the body, influencing everything from digestion to blood pressure. The right amount of cortisol, one of our long-term stress hormones, is necessary for functioning. However, most of us have too much cortisol in our systems due to the high levels of stress experienced in modern life. Chronic high cortisol levels can lead to dysregulation, including poor digestion, depression, high blood pressure, and more.

This is where adaptogens come in! These herbs have traditionally been shown to help decrease cortisol spikes over time by normalizing the HPA axis, thus normalizing our responses to stress. As spikes in adrenaline and cortisol become less dramatic, we feel better, welcoming more serenity, stability, and joy into our lives!

This is why we LOVE adaptogens at Ceybon, and why we include them in all of our Ceybon AF herbal aperitifs! Choose Ceybon for more peace and lasting wellness.

Adaptogen Spotlight: Reishi

 

We’re always raving about how incredible reishi mushroom is, but did you know that reishi is also an adaptogen? Traditionally used for strengthening the heart, improving cognitive function, and prolonging lifespan, reishi has been a key adaptogenic ally to humans for millennia. Used for over 2,000 years in Chinese medicine, reishi is known as a calming adaptogen that subtly shifts and expands awareness while nourishing the spirit, or shen. Shen refers to a person’s emotional balance and consciousness—when our shen needs nourishment, we experience anxiety, insomnia, moodiness, and poor memory, among other symptoms. Reishi, as a grounding, relaxing, and wise presence, helps us with these challenges, and its effects, while subtle, build up over time to help balance us in myriad ways. Try reishi in our Ceybon AF collection, and know that you are drinking a traditional adaptogenic herb in your delicious mocktail.
