With our new Superfood Elixirs, you easily incorporate nourishing ingredients into your day and give your body a boost in whatever way you’d like. Whether it’s nourishing your gut with our Belly Elixir, detoxifying from the inside out with our Beauty Elixir or improving mental stamina with our Brain Elixir, each variety offers unique benefits. One of our favorite superfood adaptogens that we include in all three of our elixirs is ashwagandha.

Like all adaptogens, ashwagandha can act as your body’s own personal thermostat, adapting  – and working to amplify the body’s ability to self-regulate key systems, offering balance and support wherever you particularly need. Ashwagandha is well-known for regulating our adrenals, improving thyroid function and strengthening the immune system. In India, ashwagandha is known as the “strength of the stallion” for its powerful immune boosting abilities.

In addition to these physical benefits, ashwagandha has also been shown to benefit brain health. Ashwagandha is high in antioxidants such as vitamin E and C and have been known to destroy free radicals, potentially leading to a decrease in stress, anxiety and depression.

Along with easy-to-digest fermented greens and functional ingredients, our Elixirs can be mixed with water or juice, added to a smoothie or blended into your favorite recipe for an easy way to incorporate ashwagandha. Balance hormones and boost your immune system with one easy scoop! [1]
