Organic Ashwagandha Root
One of the favorite ingredients in Ayurvedic medicine, the Ashwagandha root is full of medicinal properties that naturally heal the body. Indian herbalists and holistic practitioners have been using this plant for more than 3,000 years to reduce stress, heighten focus, gain strength, and promote balance throughout the body’s many systems.
Astragalus is a pink and white flower that has been a vital part of traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. The root of the astragalus flower is where many of its healing properties come from. Astragalus is known for its immune-boosting, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and illness-fighting powers. It can even be used to boost energy and increase overall wellness.
Chamomile is a cure-all ingredient used in herbal teas. Its crushed-up leaves and stems are full of powerful antioxidants that get rid of damage-causing cells, ease pain or tension, and provide a full-body wellness boost. Chamomile also contains tryptophan, an essential amino acid responsible for producing niacin, serotonin, and melatonin.
Cinnamon is the tastiest way to improve your health. Made from the inner bark of Cinnamomum trees, its use spans time as far back as Ancient Egypt where it was harvested and then gifted to high-ranking rulers. Much of the healing power in cinnamon comes from its oily compound called cinnamaldehyde. Cinnamon is packed with antioxidants and is linked with tissue-repair, reduced risk of heart problems, insulin balance, and protection against nerve damage.
Organic Dandelion Root
While dandelion is a common weed that most landscapers and lawn-perfectionists detest, this overlooked weed is very beneficial for one’s well being and is a popular ingredient in all-natural medicine. The roots of the dandelion are full of nutrients that promote better liver health by detoxing the body. Its uses also include boosting energy, easing digestion, and reducing bloating.
Elderberries are both delicious and powerful. Its full-bodied purple hue is a reflection of its hearty antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and vitamin-rich composition. Historically speaking, the prized elderberry was used for centuries in traditional medicine before being revitalized into modern, mainstream medicines. Experts recommend taking elderberries to ease the symptoms of a cold, the flu, and other common illnesses.
Ginger (aka ginger root) is a flowering plant that belongs to the same family as turmeric; there’s no wonder why ginger and turmeric are almost always paired together. The reason why ginger is so special is because of its gingerol compound- the chemical responsible for ginger’s anti-inflammatory, anti-nausea, and antioxidant powers.
Organic Lemon Balm
Lemon balm belongs to the same family as mint, but instead of a minty scent, it has a characteristic lemony aroma and taste. This herb is very popular and is not just used in teas; you can find it in oil, syrup, or ointment medicines. The health benefits of lemon balm are quite vast: enhanced cognitive function, soothing and calming, stress and anxiety reduction, mood boosting, and illness-fighting.
Organic Milk Thistle Seeds
Milk thistle seed contains a powerful chemical compound known as silymarin. Silymarin is responsible for all the healing benefits found in milk thistle seeds, including detoxification of the body, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant powers, blood sugar and cholesterol regulation, and ease of digestion.
Turmeric has more of a purpose than just to add flavor to your favorite curry dish. The active ingredient in turmeric, known as curcumin, is one of the most hyped compounds in both traditional and modern medicines. Curcumin is scientifically proven to help prevent heart disease and heart-related problems, depression, Alzheimer’s, and even cancer.
