Age-Defying Properties of Ashwagandha Root Powder

Although the world just turned a year older wouldn’t it be nice if we could turn back the hands of time on our own age?  Your age number may not get any lower but your body can certainly look and feel younger in the New Year with the fantastic age-defying properties of Ashwagandha Root Powder!


Ashwagandha Root Powder is an ancient Ayurvedic herb that has been used for medicinal and therapeutic purposes for centuries. It is native to India but can also be found in Africa and the Middle East.  Ashwagandha Root Powder supports full body health and also helps to resolve a number of ailments as a special classification of superfood called an adaptogen. This term refers to certain natural supplements that raise the body’s immune system and entire operating system to greater potential in preventing the effects of foreign invaders, cleansing to rid the body of threats, and repairing the body to a new, improved state.

When it comes to the natural aging process, the build-up of internal stress from a variety of factors is what takes a toll on the body. Over time our cells become weaker and their ability to fight off pathogens is diminished. Additionally, internal swelling intensifies with age and can lead to pain, chronic conditions and disease.

Antioxidants are one of your best defenses against internal and external aging. And guess what? Ashwagandha Root Powder is jam-packed with them!  Plus, Ashwagandha Root Powder binds with free radicals to eliminate them from the body before they can damage and mutate cells. This reduces harmful oxidative stress throughout the body.

With antioxidants, plant sterols and other phyto-nutrients, Ashwagandha Root Powder also helps reduce internal swelling by supporting the body’s natural histamine response. With more control over the build-up on swelling around organs, Ashwagandha Root Powder can help keep diseases at bay. This also helps relieve pain caused by certain health conditions.

Furthermore, Ashwagandha Root Powder supports the rapid regeneration of cells. As cells die or become weak, new cells take their place. If this process occurs quickly, the body feels less of a burden and doesn’t skip a beat. This is not only evident internally, but also with skin aging. When dead skin cells are removed, younger, fresher skin can rise to the surface for a more youthful appearance.

Ashwagandha Root Powder is simple to incorporate into your diet. You can mix it into your favorite dishes from casseroles and soups, to stir frys and roasted veggies. You can also blend it into fruit and vegetable juices and smoothies.

The calendar will keep moving forward in 2017 and the number of birthday candles on your cake will increase as well. But that doesn’t mean you have to look and feel older. With Ashwagandha Root Powder you can enjoy age-defying benefits this year and every year after.

Ashwagandha for a Back to School Immune Boost

It’s back to school time and that means lots of new germs may be entering your household.  While washing hands, sanitizing surfaces and coughing and sneezing into sleeves are great preventative measures, you can’t stop every germ.  Prepare your body with one of the best natural immune system boosters, Ashwagandha Root Powder

Ashwagandha is an ancient Indian word that means “horse-like” or “smells like a horse.”  And while we’re pretty sure you don’t want to smell like a horse, wouldn’t we all love to be as strong as a horse?  Ashwagandha Root Powder can help strengthen your body, starting with your ability to fight off foreign invaders. 

Ashwagandha is still being examined to understand its full potential but has a variety of immune-boosting elements, including antioxidants, amino acids, peptides and fats.  These are necessary for all bodily functions but they are especially important for powering cells and keeping our cognition sharp and cardiovascular system pumping.  In particular, peptides help maintain biochemical reactions that improve the immune system.

Our immune systems kick in when our bodies sense disease-causing organisms or substances that threaten our health.  This amazing network of cells, tissues and organs works together as a protection mechanism.  Ashwagandha supports these protective forces, allowing them to attack many invaders before we’re even aware of them.  Other times we do feel the symptoms of a disease or condition while our bodies work hard to destroy them. 

The immune system supports the healing process in every way, big or small.  We usually think of our immune systems fighting the small things that are more prevalent, such as colds, ear infections and minor aches and pains.  But the immune system is hard at work protecting against high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney disease, high cholesterol and elevated stress, to name a few.  With help from the tremendous nutrients found in Ashwagandha, our immune systems can be more efficient.

Ashwagandha is even being studied for its potential to eliminate cancer cells.  Research indicates that Ashwagandha increases white blood cell counts.  As the most important part of the immune system network, white blood cells can bolster the immune system and provides the body with natural energy.  White blood cells are responsible for defending against infectious diseases and foreign invaders. 

As the kids head back to the classroom, don’t let your family fall prey to the all-too-common game of pass-the-cold.  Protect yourself with immune boosting Ashwagandha Root Powder.

Ashwagandha Root Powder: A Wise Superfood for your Brain

Ashwagandha is one of the most powerful superfoods currently being studied for its potential to improve and support neurological and cognitive functions.  We previously discussed the calming benefits of Ashwagandha Root Powder, and its ability to help reduce stress and anxiety.  Today we’re examining how Ashwagndha can promote brain health, including memory retention and defense against mental deterioration. 

The Ashwagandha herb has traditionally be used in Indian, Asian and African medicine as a natural healing alternative.  Ashwagandha is an anti-inflammatory and immune system booster that not only helps us fight off foreign invaders like viruses and bacteria, but also protects against free radicals that wreak havoc in our bodies.  Because it also strengthens the body and supplies energy, it is known as an adaptogen

As our immune systems act as an internal defense system against anything it perceives as a threat, it can often create inflammation or swelling as an order of protection.  When inflammation remains in the body for too long or becomes chronic, we are at increased risk for diseases.  Inflammation is the root cause of many life-threatening diseases, including cancer, Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease, among others. 

The natural chemicals found in Ashwagandha strengthen the immune system to help fight disease and illness, while also reducing inflammation.  By supporting reconstruction of nerve cells and synapses, it shows promising signs as a natural alternative for treating symptoms of degenerative neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and dementia, as well as improving cognitive function that often deteriorates with age.  It is believed that Ashwagandha extract may inhibit acetylcholinesterase, which is an enzyme that destroys chemical messengers in the brain.

Ashwagandha is believed to increase while blood cells, which strengthens the immune system.  It also acts as a mild sedative, calming the nervous system and helping to control pain.  Additionally, Ashwagandha may regulate blood sugar levels and sugar cravings, which helps the body remain balanced and reduces the risk of many diseases. 

Ashwagandha is also being researched for another brain condition known as cerebellar ataxia. This disease is marked by uncoordinated balance, bodily movements and the eyes caused by nerve loss or damage. Along with other herbs, Ashwagandha is being studied as part of an alternative form of medicine called Ayurvedic therapy to help people suffering from this disease. 

As Ashwagandha continues to be researched, this natural resource for improved neurological and cognitive function is gaining popularity.  Zokiva is proud to offer the finest Ashwagandha Root Powder for your health!
