Adaptogenic shrooms and plants are best known for their ability to help our bodies "adapt" to environmental stress. This 5,000-year-old ancient science of Ayurveda is a holistic healing system that champions the natural world and ultimately a more natural you.
“I just have to tell you. I LOVE Forfolk. I've been taking a variety of Moon Juice supplements in the AM, and switched out to Forfolk, and am living for it. Forgot to take it this morning and already felt a difference!”
“I've been taking Forfolk for a few weeks now, and am really feeling the difference. It's great!”
“I love the mission of the brand and the capsules are so much easier to take than several powders every day. It's made my routine so much more efficient.”
Forfolk adaptogenic capsules boost immunity and decrease stress. We include 6 adaptogens, including Ashwaganda, a nightshade family plant with creamy white roots that are integral to Ayurveda, the ancient Indian medicine tradition.
-Anti stress: reduces serum cortisol levels- a biomarker for stress.
-Improves Mood: reduces depression and lowers negative mood levels.
-Anti anxiety: promotes a calm and even mood through anxiety reduction.
2020 was rough on all of us. So we decided to create a supplement capsule to help us cope with incessant daily stresses.
Reishi is often regarded as the mushroom of immortality. With its numerous benefits, we incorporated it within a potent mix alongside other adaptogens.
Reishi's numerous benefits include:
-Boosting Immunity: normalizes immune system when it is either over or underacting.
-Anti viral and antibacterial: Can be used to treat digestive infection.
-Digestive aid: strengthens and and activates the parasympathetic nervous system which is the body’s rest and digest mode.
-Improves liver function: improvement in bile production necessary for proper fat digestion.
After years of hitting the wall and experiencing fatigue, we've found the unlock. Cordyceps. A must on our list of vital adaptogenic mushrooms to include in our capsule. Cordyceps are vital for boosting energy and recovery - both necessary to help you Peace Out.
Cordyceps benefits include:
-Supports healthy metabolism, and energy production
-May protect against viral infections
-Improves the immune system
-Boosts sex drive
Chaga may not be a looker (often compared to burned charcoal), but it's no less a SUPER mushroom. We're big mushroom advocates at Forfolk, and Chaga is one of our favorites as well as a key component in our capsule mix.
Benefits of Chaga Mushroom:
-Supports immune health: Compounds called polysaccharides that are found in Chaga have precisely this benefit. These long chains of carbohydrate molecules also help support the body’s conversion of food into energy for a caffeine-free energy boost.
-Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties: Chaga is one of the most healthful foods on the planet and boasts 31 times more antioxidants than blueberries. Chaga has the ability to support the body against the harmful effects of free radicals and oxidative stress.
-Supports healthy stress response: Chaga is categorized as an adaptogen. Adaptogens have unique properties that help support the body’s ability to cope with the effects of physical and emotional stress. When taken consistently over a period of weeks or months, adaptogens may help support healthy stress response and promote feelings of calm and balance.
More than ever, we all need a boost in immunity and that's why we thought it was important to include Cinnamon Bark in our Forfolk capsule blend. With antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, Cinnamon bark is a power spice that helps you Peace Out.
Benefits of Cinnamon bark include:
-Tannins: common in many tree barks, tannins work like magic band aids. They have astringent properties and tend to bring blood and tissues back together, healing wounds.
-Blood sugar, insulin, and appetite: Can help lower blood sugar in individuals and increase the body's sensitivity to insulin.
-Fighting infection: Wonder why cinnamon smells so nice? Cinnamaldehyde is the main component in cinnamon that gives it its taste and sweet smell. It can also fight against various fungal infections and inhibit the growth of certain bacteria.
-Antioxidants: With its high level of polyphenol antioxidants, Cinnamon is an excellent anti-inflammatory and can help with chronic tissue inflammation.
Last but not least, the final ingredient in our Forfolk Peace Out blend is Maca root. It's a potential adaptogen that helps with sexy time. Good sexual health helps us all.
Benefits of Maca Root:
-Rich in antioxidants: May help fight chronic disease and neurological damage.
-Enhances mood, energy, and memory: Naturally increases energy without caffeine, increases stamina, and may reduce symptoms of depression.
