The definition of balanced is being in harmonious proportion. Meaning, there isn’t too little or too much of one thing. This philosophy can be applied to all aspects of life including our pantries. You see, our pantries stock what we are going to put into our bodies. What we decide to fill our pantries with can simply feed us, or it can nourish us. With this nourishment in mind, Balanced Pantry was born. Using adaptogens (a unique class of herbs to improve adrenal function), healing jars of goodness were created with, of course, harmonious balance as the goal.
How do adaptogens work?
Our adrenal system controls the body’s hormonal response to environmental triggers such as stress. In modern times we are all so busy and stressed out, so our adrenals go into overdrive and release excessive amounts of the stress hormone called cortisol. This can leave us feeling fatigued, irritable, anxious, and not like ourselves. Adaptogens work by helping the body regulate its stress levels so it is able to cope with triggers that can occur throughout modern day life.
Adaptogen blends for Health & Wellbeing
This edible blend of adaptogen herbs is otherwise known as a spoonful of LOVE. The properties of this tonic are designed to help support sexual energy and passion which can often fall by the wayside in our busy schedules.
Also known as a spoonful of SPARKLE, this blend was created to help the body’s collagen production which can strengthen hair and nails as well as give women their glow back.
A spoonful of SUNSHINE helps with healthy energy production and is ideal for those who are lacking stamina or are feeling a bit lethargic. With ingredients such as maca and goji berries, this blend is perfect to enhance performance from the inside out.
A spoonful of PEACE is designed to help people become calmer and centered. The ingredients support the body’s adrenal system, so people can feel at peace and at ease once more.
With so many distractions in this day and age, many people struggle to focus throughout the day. A spoonful of SMART is able to help the body with its cognitive function, so concentration and productivity can increase.
This warming GLOW milk is the perfect alternative to coffee (which can contribute to burning out adrenals) and is sure to soothe and uplift the whole body. With healing ingredients such as turmeric, honey, and vanilla, this is the perfect blend to sip on to improve overall well-being.
HOW TO INCORPORATE
Balanced Pantry’s blends are all 100% edible and can easily be included in a daily schedule. They can be added to a morning smoothie or hot drink, sprinkled on top of cereal, and can be mixed into a warm glass of nut milk.
