Jaakko Halmetoja is one of the most well-known nutrition, superfood and raw chocolate professionals in Finland. In our main event, Jaakko gave a talk about stimulants versus adaptogens. Most of us use stimulants everyday, like coffee. We take them to boost up the very moment, and accept the side effects. Stimulants can help us over a sleepy moment, but with a price of headache or concentration problem later. Jaakko challenges us to look on herbal adaptogens and not only think the present moment, but how we will feel tomorrow, next week and next year.
