Q&A with Domingo Rodriguez
You may have heard of them, but you're not quite sure what they are or how they work. We're talking about adaptogens. I sat down with Domingo Rodriguez, the founder of Grown, the creator of beautiful adaptogenic tonics, for a very candid conversation to find out what all the buzz is about and if they might just be the wellness pick-me-up you need.
What sparked your interest in health tonics and wanting to launch your own brand?
Why are natural ingredients important to you?
I think natural ingredients are one of the most important connections we have to the natural world and how we are meant to live. I’m currently between London and New York and I’m spending far too much time online and in the city without any connection to nature and the real world. Whatever we put inside ourselves needs to be recognisable to the body, be it food or supplements; the more natural we can get, the more our bodies are able to recognise and utilise them.
"Adaptogens are dual directional herbs and mushrooms that support the body’s natural defences against physical, environmental and emotional stress, helping to create balance and wellbeing throughout the body."
What's your best tip when using adaptogens for the first time?
What did you do before launching Grown?
How do you balance a very demanding role building a new brand with your well-being?
"Upgrade your existing habits by mixing our formulas into tea, coffee, juice and smoothies or take a dropperful directly under your tongue as a simple way to incorporate them into an everyday diet."
What's your favourite tonic to enjoy at this time of year?
What does the rest of 2019 have in store?
