All About Adaptogens
What are adaptogens?
Adaptogens are a unique class of non-specific herbs, including non-psychedelic mushrooms, that help reduce the effects of stress on your body, whether physical, chemical or biological.
What classifies an herb or mushroom as an adaptogen?
Adaptogens must meet three criteria:
First, adaptogens must be non-specific and assist the human body in resisting adverse conditions, such as physical, chemical or biological, including environmental pollution, climate change, radiation, infectious disease, and interpersonal conflict.
Second, adaptogens must assist the human body in maintaining homeostasis, fighting physical disorders caused by external stress.
Third, adaptogens must not harmfully affect the normal functions of the human body.
Why should I consume adaptogens?
Research estimates that 90% of illness and disease is related to stress. Additionally, acute (short-term) and chronic (long-term) stress can negatively affect overall skin wellness and aggravate skin conditions, including acne, eczema, and psoriasis. High-stress or chronic stress can interfere with your physical function and bodily processes and alter or shut down bodily functions, including the digestive, reproductive, and immune systems.
Adaptogens help reduce your body’s sensitivity to stressors to help it attain a higher level of equilibrium (homeostasis), therefore, lowering your risk of physical changes within the body and on the skin.
Are adaptogens psychedelic?
Nope. Adaptogens are medicinal mushrooms that act as functional foods and do not act on the mind or perception.
What is Unbothered?
Unbothered Adaptogenic Elixir is an Herbal Supplement made with ingredients that help support your body’s natural ability to handle emotional, physical, environmental stress and restore homeostasis. This combination of adaptogens work to help normalize cortisol levels, improve mood and brain health, provide a natural boost of energy, and lessen fatigue.
How long does it take to feel the effects of Unbothered?
Every body is different. While some people feel the effects within minutes, it may take others a couple of weeks to a month to feel a difference. We didn’t notice how much our elixir helps until we stopped taking it. Consistency is key. Consume daily and re-up.
Is it best to take Unbothered in the AM or PM?
Either. We recommend consuming Unbothered at a time when you need a natural energy booster for balanced energy throughout the day–with or without food. Check in with your body.
Can children consume adaptogens?
Please consult a pediatrician before allowing children to consume adaptogens.

My package arrived and BIG UP and UNBOTHERED have plastic shrink wrap, while SMOOVE doesn't. Why?
Great question! When we launched our newest product (SMOOVE), we wanted to improve our unit carton durability and sustainability practices by manufacturing a more durable unit carton that does not require plastic shrink wrap. To minimize waste and negative environmental impact, BIG UP and UNBOTHERED still come in version 1 of their unit cartons until our next production run.
In the future, all products will come in a carton like SMOOVE's and will not require the plastic shrink wrap.
We try to contribute to saving our planet where we can.
