Ashwagandha

ashwagandha

πŸ”¦ Shakeology spotlight!
πŸƒAshwagandha. Fun to say, nicely spelled so you can be confident in doing so! πŸ˜‚
I have MANY friends and family members who suffer from poor thyroid function. 😴
I know many who take this herb or that supplement on top of this one and that one over there πŸ’ŠπŸ’ŠπŸ’ŠπŸ’Š to help their thyroids and adrenal fatigue!
I get it, we are all trying to improve our health using the information we have! πŸ€“
Studies have shown Ashwagandha improves thyroid function and treats adrenal fatigue. There are other goods in Shakeology that ALSO help your thyroid-iodine, zinc and iron to name a few. But instead of this or that, Shakeology has totally been FORMULATED to treat our bodies. To meet them where they are and start developing health. To BE what we need nutritionally in this crazy modern society.
Part of that formula includes the use of adaptogens-like ashwagandha-which help your body adapt to stress. Adaptogens (read: tonics) are seen A LOT in ancient Chinese & Indian medicine. They work to normalize MANY functions/systems/organs. Not just one! What’s really cool is that the plants that contain the MOST adaptogens and are the MOST beneficial for you are that way because THEY THEMSELVES have had to adapt to a lot of environmental stressors. Ashwagandha, for example, has to overcome its native hot, humid & dry climate…it can grow in droughts and be prolific in dry soils. Scientists don’t really understand how these little guys can be SO effective-they can balance you so well…but they’ve DEFINITELY done enough studies to prove they do!
There’s LOTS more just this ONE herb- ashwagandha- has been studied to improve including energy levels, immune system, brain health, blood sugar stabilization and even lowering cholesterol.
And there’s a LOT more than just ONE herb in Shakeology. #winwin #getinmybelly #shakeology#daikydoseofdensenutrition
