Adapto-what? A Quick Breakdown of Bioadaptive Botanicals in Nutricentials



Bioadaptive botanicals, also known as adaptogens, are the big buzz in modern skin care. Why? As the name suggests, they’re plants that adapt to their natural environments. Basically, bio = environment, and adaptive = able to adjust to changing conditions. While it sounds pretty straightforward, there’s a bit more to it than meets the eye.


So what are adaptogens? Let’s take a closer look.


An adaptogen

    1. is nontoxic

    2. reduces the body’s stress response

    3. supports overall health by helping your body achieve balance


With that in mind, here are a few of the bioadaptive botanicals making their skin care debut in the Nutricentials® system.


Rhodiola—survives year-round in wild arctic areas and high altitudes where the oxygen is thin, and the temperatures can dip as low as -40°C.


Maral Root—flourishes in high alpine meadows that are often an inhospitable 4,500–6,000 ft (1,400–1,800 m) above sea level.


Siberian Ginseng—thrives in mountain forests and all kinds of soils, including sandy, loamy, and heavy clay soils with acid, neutral, or alkaline chemistry and soils of low nutritional value.


Chaga Mushroom—grows wild on trees in the polar deserts and tundras of Canada, Alaska, and Russia.


Resurrection Plant—springs back to life without damage after months—or even years—of extreme dehydration



These hardy plants in Nutricentials are more resilient to harsh conditions and have enhanced recovery abilities—special characteristics that help them adapt and thrive. And they’re bringing those adaptive properties—increased resiliency + enhanced recovery—straight to your skin.




The Nutricentials adaptogens help protect and balance your skin during the day while optimizing its natural repair processes overnight, which is pretty amazing. Best of all, they can help calm tired, overexerted skin and revitalize a dull appearance by building a glowing, radiant complexion for skin that looks and feels stronger and healthier than ever. That’s why every ounce of adaptable support, balance, and defense counts—because you want to thrive, not just survive!
