What are Adaptogens?

Adaptogens are a unique group of herbs that support the body's ability to curb the damaging effects of stress, restore physiological function, and support homeostasis.

In other words, adaptogens help you adapt.

By helping us navigate high-stress demands at a cellular level, adaptogens can strengthen and deepen our energy reserves and support our ability to rebound more quickly from challenging situations.
— Donald R. Yance, CN, MH, RH(AHG)

The benefits of adaptogens are seen when herbs are taken on a regular basis, and are wide ranging, differing person-to-person. Overall, adaptogens fine tune and tone various systems in the body, improve response and recovery, and adjust physiological processes as conditions change.

There are many amazing herbs that don't meet the criteria of being classified an adaptogen, and that's ok! We love superherbs and mushrooms and you'll find these plants in our products as well!

Adaptogens may support the following functions*:

  • Immune function
  • Recovery from fatigue
  • Blood sugar and blood pressure
  • Balancing endocrine gland function (think cortisol, insulin, melatonin, thyroid function)
  • Balancing hormones (both men and women)
  • Sleep quality
  • Physical stamina
  • Focus and mental clarity
  • Mental and physical endurance
  • Overall longevity and wellbeing

Our Story

Goldmine started out as a passion project, dedicated to helping people feel better, while bringing the magic of Adaptogenic herbs into modern light.

Founded by Rachael Gorjestani while in school for nutrition, she discovered a special group of herbs that helped our bodies manage stress in a natural way. Finding that adaptogens aren't super accessible to the general public, she started Goldmine to create easy ways to integrate Adaptogens into our daily lives.
