Karanja As An Adaptogen
Karanja oil is cold-pressed from the seeds of the Pongam Tree native to India. It is a cousin to neem oil and is used instead of Neem in soaps. Keys has found that Karanja enhances the effects of Neem and creates some fascinating adaptogenic properties when the two are combined.

Karanja oil has several benefits for the skin. It is known for its potential antiseptic and healing properties and is used for treating skin disorders such as infection, abscess, boils, and eczema. Its antimicrobial property helps to heal all chronic skin problems and provides normal skin texture.

Using Karanja oil on the skin can provide a wide range of benefits, including natural protection, added suppleness, moisture, and firmness. It is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and rich in antioxidants, which can help alleviate inflammatory conditions like eczema and psoriasis3
Body Wide Introduction
Adaptogens are a group of plants and mushrooms that have been used for centuries in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine to help the body resist physical, chemical, or biological stressors. In recent years, adaptogens have gained popularity in the wellness industry as a natural way to manage stress and improve overall well-being. This article will provide an overview of what adaptogens are, how they work, and what research has been done on their effectiveness.
What are Adaptogens?
Adaptogens are active ingredients in certain plants and mushrooms that may impact how your body deals with stress, anxiety, and fatigue. According to a preliminary review of studies on adaptogens, these substances must meet three criteria: first, adaptogens must be non-specific and must assist the human body in resisting a wide range of adverse conditions, such as physical, chemical, or biological stress. Second, they must have a normalizing influence, increasing what needs to go up in one person and decreasing what needs to go down in another. Third, they must not harm.
How do Adaptogens Work?
When consumed, adaptogens target specific stressors in your body. For example, if you’re stressed (elevated cortisol), an adaptogen will respond by reducing cortisol levels. If you experience chronic fatigue with low cortisol levels, an adaptogen will increase the level of cortisol in your body
.Adaptogens support the way that your body handles stress. Some people consume adaptogens to alleviate anxiety, reduce fatigue and/or increase energy, cope with trauma, regulate emotional reactions to stress, and more.
What research has been done on Adaptogens?
While there is a growing body of research on adaptogens, most studies have been conducted either in animals or in human cell samples. Even those that have been published tend to appear in small, niche journals3
. According to a review of studies on adaptogens, more and more research has been focused on this field over the past ten years. Some studies suggest that adaptogens may be useful alongside standard treatments for post-surgery recovery, congestive heart failure, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
