“Like an expensive car, your brain functions best when it gets only premium fuel…Unfortunately, just like an expensive car, your brain can be damaged if you ingest anything other than premium fuel.” – Eva Selhub, MD and Harvard Medical School Instructor

While we are on the subject of brain-altering foods, let’s talk about ashwagandha, one of the most powerful herbs in Ayurvedic healing. Ashwagandha has been used for thousands of years in traditional Indian medicine, and is considered an adaptogen, meaning it promotes balance in many different systems of the body.
While it has been used to treat countless disorders, ashwagandha is best known as being grounding, calming, and restoring – it has been used for over 3,000 years to relieve stress, increase energy levels, and improve concentration. You can find it in liquid extract, powder, tablet form, and you will be seeing it in our Calming Greens Grab N’ Go, and in one of our new cleanses! Pick up a bottle and see for yourself why you need some Ashwagandha in your life!
