Innovation in Tradition
We are especially proud to introduce some superfoods that are richly steeped in traditional ayurveda. We included some deeply nourishing and restorative herbs that help us adapt to the daily stress in our lives.
Organic Triphala: One of the most versatile of the Ayuverdic blends used for over 4000 years is triphala, which is actually composed of three separate fruits; Amla (Emblica officinalis), Haritaki (Terminalia chebula) and Bibhitaki (Terminalia bellirica). A combination that results in strong antioxidant content along with flavonoids and polyphenols. There are numerous reported uses of triphala in Ayuverda with many proven by clinical or laboratory studies of its active components. These benefits range from cleansing and weight-loss, to mood balancer and digestive support. As with any plant that contains antioxidant properties, there have been reports of triphala extract suppressing the spread and induce cell death in colon cancer cells.
Organic Ashwaghanda: Known as the Indian ginseng, ashwagandha is another heavy hitter from the Ayuverda line up. Like ginseng, it is an adaptogenic herb. Adaptogens have wide ranging health benefits from stress reducer, improving sleep pattern to increasing stamina and endurance. The list of advantages are quite impressive. In the same case as Triphala, many of of the benefits of Ashwaghandha are backed by scientific reports with findings demonstrated through laboratory and clinical studies. After learning about the many positive attributes of Ashwaghandha, we can say that we are most excited about the mood enhancing benefit of this super herb.
