What is Ashwagandha?

Ashwagandha is an impressive superfood that offers substantial health and wellness benefits, especially for neural and cognitive functions of the body.  Native to India, it is known to boost energy and prevent diseases through its immune-strengthening properties, including a variety of antioxidants.  While it helps the body sustain energy, Ashwagandha also has a calming effect that improves conditions ranging from emotional imbalance and fatigue to high blood pressure and sexual performance.

As an adaptogen, Ashwagandha elevates the body to operate at a better plain, boosts the immune system by increasing white blood cells and maintains homeostasis when any foreign attacks threaten our body “fortress.”  Adaptogens helps cells repair quickly and more efficiently, which in turn supports every bodily function.  And when all systems run smoothly, we feel better, think better, perform better and are just better.   With improved cellular capacity, Ashwagandha helps the body produce energy naturally by way of adenosine triphosphate, also known as ATP.

Adatopgens are particularly helpful when our bodies start developing problems, either due to genetic, environmental or age-related causes.  One root of many diseases is inflammation.  It can lead to many serious and potentially fatal conditions, such as cancer, heart disease, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and many more critical illnesses.  Ashwagandha contains powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatories that help combat many diseases that may be caused by inflammation.  In particular, they work to repair nerve cells and protect against neurological diseases that cause brain deterioration.  And Ashwagandha may block the acetylcholinesterase enzyme responsible for destroying communication in the brain.  In addition to protecting our brains from horrible mind-weakening conditions, Ashwagandha boosts mental capacity including improved memory.

So now we’re operating at a superior level, defending ourselves against disease and illness, and we have more energy.  What else can Ashwagandha do for us?  It acts as a mild relaxant to help reduce stress and anxiety.  Specifically, it has shown to reduce stress hormone cortisol in the bloodstream.  When we relax our bodies and reduce stress positive energy is released.  This sedative effect calms the body, helping with a variety of stress-related symptoms including fatigue, high blood pressure, anxiety and mood disorders, depression, trouble sleeping and cloudiness of the mind. 

Ashwagandha has many other benefits that support healthy bodies too.  It helps maintain good vision and supports strong muscles and bones.  Ashwagandha is often used to help stabilize blood sugar levels within a normal range, which can aid diabetics in managing their disease.  It helps maintain normal cholesterol levels for healthy blood and heart function.  It can also improve sexual desire, fertility and performance in men, and reproductive health in men and women.  And Ashwagandha has anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties as well.

Ashwagandha Root Powder is easy to incorporate into your daily diet to boost your body to a new and better playing field.  Whether you’re looking for more energy or a mental boost, or making an effort to protect yourself against long term life-threatening conditions, Ashwaganda is one of the best all-natural superfood supplements for health, wellness and vitality.

Introducing Ashwagandha Powder: The Mood-Enhancing and Disease Fighting Superfood

Zokiva is proud to introduce another great superfood into our product line: Ashwagandha Powder!  This therapeutic and rejuvenating herb naturally contains a variety of medicinal elements, including fatty acids, amino acids, alkaloids, withanolides and choline.  The astounding health benefits of Ashwagandha stem from its antioxidant potency, positioning this ancient Indian herb as an all-encompassing natural solution to a variety of stress, environmental and genetic conditions.

More than 200 studieshave been done on the phenomenal Ashwaganha plant and the research overwhelmingly shows that it can have incredible neuroprotective effects that may help the body more effectively cope with stressors to the nervous system that can lead to degenerative diseases, premature aging and cancer.  We all know that our neurological state – whether calm and peaceful or depressed and anxious – can have great impact on our physical health.  Similarly, our physical condition affects our outlook on life, our emotional balance and ability to respond to life’s challenges.  Ashwagandha can work its ancient magic in order to improve the connectivity of our physical health to our mental and emotional status.

This powerful herb naturally found in subtropical climates was first recognized for its mood-enhancing properties, helping people manage stress, alleviate depression, achieve restful sleep and reduce anxiety.  But perhaps more importantly, it helps to combat the extremely harmful effects that stress has on the body, health and wellness.  That includes brain-cell degeneration, which causes diseases including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, as well as inflammatory conditions ranging from arthritis to cancer.  In fact, because of its free radical fighting antioxidant content, Ashwagandha is gaining recognition as an anti-cancer superfood.  Preliminary studies have shown it may inhibit cancer cell growth.

The health benefits of Ashwagandha extend to every area of the body.  Ashwagandha supports a healthier immune system, stable blood sugar levels and lower cholesterol levels within the normal range.  Cognitive benefits have been reported as well, including improvements in learning, better retaining information and improved reacting to triggers.  The natural healing powers of Ashwagandha provide support for pain relief for muscular aches and discomfort, such as backaches and the more serious chronic condition known as fibromyalgia.  And all those antioxidants not only help to control swelling and inflammation within the body, but they also help to repair external skin wounds and other skin conditions.  

While we all aim to reduce stressors in our lives, many are unavoidable.  That’s why it is imperative that we take matters into our own hands and protect our bodies with powerful, all-natural superfoods like Ashwagandha powder.  From mood to memory, immunity to inflammation, and antioxidants to anti-cancer, Ashwagandha is second to none in repairing the body, keeping the mind sharp and helping you achieve emotional balance.  We look forward to hearing about your amazing results from using Zokiva’s Ashwagandha Powder.  Stay tuned to our blog to learn more about the incomparable benefits of Ashwagandha.
