We are kicking off our “Superfoods Edition” for our blog series with Ashwagandha, an MVP of the herbal tradition! Ashwagandha is one of the most important herbs of Ayurveda (the traditional system of medicine in India) and has been used for millennia for its wide ranging health benefits.
Ashwagandha is a highly esteemed adaptogenic super root to increase vitality, relieve stress, and boost brain and cognitive function. Adaptogens are known for the ability to help our bodies “adapt” to environmental and emotional stressors.
In its natural form, the taste of Ashwagandha is quite earthy and bitter, but we have formulated our Moringa + Ashwagandha functional shot deliciously! Oftentimes bitter and earthy are difficult to consume but not with our drinks. They are scrumptious!
Ayurvedic herbs are safe and natural remedies which have historically been given to small children as tonics and are also taken by the middle-aged and elderly to increase longevity. Being a powerful adaptogen, it enhances the body’s resilience to stress. We could all use ways to reduce stress, right? Among the Ayurvedic herbs Ashwagandha holds the most prominent place. Studies have shown that it enhances the function of the brain and nervous system and improves memory. It has also been shown to improve the function of the reproductive system promoting a healthy sexual and reproductive balance. Ashwagandha also naturally improves the body’s defense against disease by improving immunity. It also possesses potent antioxidant properties that help protect against cellular damage caused by free radicals!
We love Ayurvedic herbs and are excited to share with you their inherent healing powers in our Superfoods Edition blog series. Stay tuned for more on the other herbs we use in our wellness drinks!
