It seems like every time I open Instagram, I see a new shiny adaptogen-infused product calling my name. But if you’re like me, you actually have no idea what the heck an adaptogen really is, so what’s the 411 on them? In short, adaptogens are herbal supplements that “adapt” to your body’s needs. They’ve been known to help boost your mood, de-stress and combat fatigue, and now, you can drink them in many fancy forms that can level-up your self-care routine in the new year. As of late, I’ve been spotting more and more adaptogen-infused drinks, and I’ve taken quite a few for a road test that have become a staple in my fridge—like the Oprah-loved Clevr Blends superfood lattes.
And now that it’s Dry January, it’s the perfect time to test out some new adaptogen drinks to hold you over until February 1st (or beyond) because boring water just isn’t going to cut it. These alcohol-free drinks still feel elevated like your favorite cocktail, but instead of a hangover, you’ll feel rejuvenated and rested the next morning. You might like them so much you might be tempted to say goodbye to booze forever! The ingredients in each vary but you can find beneficial ingredients like ashwagandha, lion’s mane, and L-theanine to name a few. There’s even a mix just for bedtime to help you catch some restful Zzzs.
Adaptogen drinks come in a variety of forms—from powders that you mix in water to hot lattes and sparkling water so you can get your daily water intake. Pretty much whatever beverage you prefer, there’s an adaptogen version of it. Ahead, we’ve rounded up the best adaptogen drinks you’ll want to stock up on this January and always so you can feel your best whether you’re trying to mix up your hydration rotation or you want to drink less liquor.
As always, we recommend checking with your doctor before introducing any kind of new supplement to ensure it’ll work with your other medications and supplements.
