What does “Clinical Grade Adaptogens” mean?
Last updated February 7, 2024
Great question. Let’s start first by defining an adaptogen and then clinical grade. An adaptogen is something that helps your body resist and recover from the effects of stress faster than it could do on its own. Adaptogens can be herbal ingredients, minerals, antioxidants and other compounds that brings the body back to balance.
The way we define “Clinical Grade” at Rootine is through two metrics.
- Standardization of active compounds - One is ensuring plant ingredients contain a standardized amount of bioactives that are responsible for the positive benefits. At Rootine, we use adaptogenic herbs that have standardized percents of bioactive compounds.
- Effective Dosing - The second part of clinical grade is related to the dose of the ingredient. Dose matters when it comes to moving the needle for health benefits. We use effective doses of our ingredients that are supported by the latest clinical research.
