Did you know that drugs for pain are a leading cause of accidental death and are completely avoidable? There are plenty of natural foods that can, and will, reduce inflammation, eliminate physical (and emotional) pain, plus prevent disease – without the need for toxic chemicals. Today, we’ll focus our attention on the value of superfood nutrition, herbs, healthy fats, plus much more!
Here is how 3 adaptogenic herbs can protect your immune system, reduce stress and boost your energy
Ashwagandha is one of the most important herbs in Ayurvedic medicine. Traditionally speaking, this herb is widely used to help people improve their strength and immune system – especially after an illness. Over 200 scientific studies have revealed that ashwagandha can protect the immune system; reduce stress; improve learning and memory; relieve mild depression; help balance blood sugar, reduce excess cholesterol, eliminate inflammation, plus much more – without negative side effects!
If you want to increase your overall energy and stamina – there’s nothing like maca. This nutrient-dense food is typically found growing in the high regions of Peru and has been cultivated for over 2,000 years. When used regularly, you can expect to see an increase in your strength, energy, and endurance – especially for men in the area of “intimacy.” One word of caution, don’t put this herb in a late-night smoothie – you’ll be up all night!
Rhodiola, sometimes called golden root, is also considered an adaptogenic herb – meaning your body uses what it needs to up or down-regulate normal biological functions – as needed. Grown in the higher altitudes of arctic areas in Europe and Asia, rhodiola has been traditionally used by the Russians to reduce fatigue, problems with concentration, and memory loss. In addition, athletes have widely used this herb to improve their physical performance. (I love this herb!)
