Immunity + Ayurveda: How Three Hermits Wellness Shots Can Help

The overall function of the immune system is to prevent or limit infection and the aim of Ayurveda is to live in harmony with nature. Our products embody this philosophy as it is our mission to preserve the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda by offering a line of remedies which seamlessly fit into a modern lifestyle.

Ayurveda essentially says that the more toxins we have in the body, the lower our immunity will be. Toxins accumulate from undigested food in the body; and, the more you burn the toxins, the better your immunity will be. Excess food and toxic build-up in the system lessens the effectiveness of the immune system’s ability to function. 

This accumulation of toxins in the body is referred to as “Ama” in Sanskrit. To decrease Ama, we increase “Agni” (inner digestive fire) by incorporating specific herbs and spices into our diets.  Spices and herbs such as ashwagandha, turmeric (curcumin), black pepper, cinnamon, ginger, and fennel warm the body, thereby increasing Agni and helping us burn toxic build up. This improves circulation and detoxes the blood, in turn, strengthening the immune system. 

Spices will change your life! We live by them and want you to know the power they hold. These ingredients positively impact the body in many ways such as strengthening the metabolism, warming the stomach and blood, and stimulating the senses. They also have antibacterial, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory powers which also increase the effectiveness of the immune system. 

We are rooted in this ancient wisdom and have created a line of drinks that are FUN and easy to include in your diet. Powerful food does not have to be intimidating to consume! Every bottle of Three Hermits wellness shots has 100% of your daily multivitamins, along with these powerful, life-giving ingredients. Enjoy our wellness shots today! 

Turmeric + Nirgundi

Traditionally known for its antiinflammatory effects, curcumin has been shown in the last two decades to be a potent immunomodulatory agent thus serving as a therapy for immune disorders.  Nirgundi is a common ingredient in various healing sciences. It is an analgesic and anti-inflammatory. 

Moringa + Ashwagandha 

Ashwagandha has traditionally been used to strengthen the immune system after illness. It has also been referred to as “Indian ginseng” because of its ability to enhance your stamina and work as a natural stress reliever.  Every part of the Moringa tree can be used for its various healing properties. It’s been called the “miracle tree” for its nutritional assets. 

Cinnamon + Fenugreek 

Cinnamon is a stimulating spice which prepares and promotes Agni within the body. Fenugreek slows absorption of sugars in the stomach and stimulates insulin. In traditional Chinese medicine, the spice is known as a “phlegm mover” and is said to break up stuck energies and cool inflammation within the body.
