Herbal Balance in a Stressed-Out World

ashwagandha, macaAshwagandha and Maca: Botanicals That Help Us Adapt

As humans, we often experience stress as a reaction to changes that are happening around us. This is especially true when we perceive the changes to be threatening. Think 2020. We often hear “we’re all in this together” but the stress that we feel can be a deeply personal experience for each of us. Not only can the resulting emotional stress impact the quality of our daily lives but can also affect physical health if left unchecked. Ashwagandha and Maca Root extract, in a class of herbs called “adaptogens”, may help with managing stress.


Stress – The Good, Bad, and Ugly

We have to remember, however, that stress isn’t always an enemy. In the short term, stress can actually be quite positive. Short term stress often gives us the motivation we need to propel ourselves forward and can also help us avoid immediate danger. Long-term stress, on the other hand, is what can really work against us. Left unchecked, chronic stress can result in a domino effect of consequences that can impact almost every area of our lives. That’s when it really looks ugly.

So how can we manage stress more effectively? The answer to this question is highly individual. For some, getting out in nature and observing its beauty works wonders for helping quiet the mind and regain balance. For others, a nice warm bath at the end of the day, complete with magnesium-rich Epsom salt, helps to reclaim focus and manage stress.

Thankfully, nature also provides some helpful tools for stress management that have stood the test of time. Adaptogens are among the most respected botanicals for helping with stress. An adaptogen can help us “adapt”, or cope with the stress that we encounter in our daily lives and by doing so, helps conserve energy and promotes endurance. Most herbal adaptogens also have a long history of safe use and generally promote overall balance in the body.


Reduce Stress and Mild Anxiety

In Ayurveda, one of the world’s oldest systems of medicine, the herb Withania somnifera is known as the “prince of herbs”. Ashwagandha root is native to India and has been used for centuries to help rejuvenate and tonify the body. After periods of prolonged stress, it is quite common to experience a feeling of nervous exhaustion or overall fatigue. In situations like this ashwagandha may be especially helpful because it can help enhance endurance and boost recovery while reducing stress and mild anxiety.

Ashwagandha Gold features a clinically proven organic Ashwagandha extract standardized to 5% withanolides from the roots alone. Withanolides are the active compounds in Ashwagandha that are responsible for many of its benefits, which include supporting mental clarity, energy, endurance, as well as a healthy stress response. The vegan Ashwagandha capsules are made with award-winning KSM-66® Ashwagandha extract. Gluten-free, Non-GMO Project Verified and certified organic. Made without magnesium stearate or harmful additives.


Energize Your Life

In the high altitude of the Andes mountains is another highly nutritious botanical that has offered restorative and balancing support for many generations. Maca root belongs to the Brassicaceae family of vegetables and is a nutrition powerhouse, sharing some of the same beneficial constituents you may find in kale or broccoli. This rich diversity of vitamins and minerals helps contribute to maca’s many strengthening and health-giving properties. Maca root has been traditionally used by the Andean people for centuries to support energy, endurance, bedroom vigor, and emotional wellness. Men and women love it.

Maca Gold features organic, full-spectrum maca root extract that is sustainably harvested in the Andes mountains. Both featured adaptogens are independently tested by third-party labs in the USA to ensure that they meet stringent quality standards for purity and potency. Look for the Non-GMO Project™ Verified seal and appreciate that they’re manufactured without chemical additives. Specifically, this means no fillers, binders, or coating agents such as magnesium stearate. The herbal maca capsules feature certified-organic, solvent-free Peruvian maca root powder containing the full spectrum and goodness of the whole root. Vegan.
