Superfood Spotlight: Ashwagandha 0

Over the last year or so, herbs from a number of healing traditions have gained popularity in the wellness world and are crossing over into the mainstream. These herbs are often referred to as ‘adaptogens’. Adaptogens are essentially non-toxic plants that aid the body in resisting and dealing with internal and external stressors of all kinds. They help the body adapt! Many of them work by, as Dr. Brenda Powell states, “doing for your adrenal glands what exercise does for your muscles”. When we exercise, we put stress on our muscles, but as you continue to train and exercise, our bodies become better at dealing with the stress we’re putting on our bodies - they adapt!

Most of these herbs have been used for centuries in ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic healing traditions. Today, we’re seeing them pop up all over, most commonly being added to lattes, elixirs, teas, smoothies and other superfood blends.Today we’re going to be spotlighting one of the most popular adaptogens having a renaissance today: Ashwagandha
