Ashwagandha Capsules for Thyroid Support

Ashwagandha is an extraordinary superfood with many health benefits. We often talk about the various and incredible advantages of Ashwagandha on our blog. Today we’re focusing on thyroid support as we welcome our new Ashwagandha Capsules to our Zokiva pantry.

Ashwagandha is a unique medicinal herb categorized as an adaptogen. This highly regarded subset of superfoods helps elevate the body’s performance to new heights. By supporting the body’s immune functions, Ashwagandha Capsules have the ability to heal and protect against long term stressors in the body. Without the accumulation of toxins that can burden organs and systems, the body is better able to operate at its fullest potential and fight off pathogens that threaten harm.

Among the many health benefits of Ashwagandha Capsules is adrenal support, which is why it can be a natural supplement that aids the thyroid. The thyroid is part of the endocrine system and is responsible for hormones that control the metabolic process. Therefore, the thyroid is extremely important in our bodies because it helps us synthesize and utilize nutrients.

A properly functioning thyroid uses nutrients efficiently, helping turn food into energy. An underactive thyroid is called hypothyroidism and an over-activity of thyroid hormones is called hyperthyroidism. Each has their own challenges. Often thyroid conditions are the result of autoimmune diseases, which is where Ashwagandha Capsules can really help as an immune booster.

Ashwagandha Capsules support the thyroid on several levels. First, it helps the function of the thyroid gland by aiding in the production of two key thyroid hormones: thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). These essential hormones assist everything from cognition and heart function, to muscle and bone strength and digestion.  To that end, Ashwagandha Capsules are often recommended as supplements for Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) function. Each of these glands play a role in a healthy thyroid.

Additionally, the other health benefits of Ashwagandha Capsules can combat some of the negative symptoms associated with thyroid conditions. Symptoms such as low energy and depression are less likely when Ashwagandha Capsules are part of a natural supplement regimen for thyroid problems. Also, since Ashwagandha Capsules keep the immune system on track, the risk of mutations in cells that make up the thyroid and cause potentially spreadable diseases are reduced.

The thyroid is a critical component of the amazing machine that is the human body. Ashwagandha Capsules are a magnificent superfood for thyroid support to keep all systems in check and elevate your health in ways that few herbs can fathom. We hope you’ll try our new Ashwagandha Capsules for thyroid support and full body health.

What is Ashwagandha + How to take Ashwagandha

What is Ashwagandha

Native to India, Ashwagandha is a tremendous superfood that supports and improves healthy bodies.  This evergreen shrub has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine for its amazing herbal benefits for physical, mental and emotional well being 

Due to its high antioxidant and phyto-nutrient density, Ashwagandha is known as an adaptogen.  This means it works to improve the body’s overall performance and level of operation so the body is less affected by everyday threats that would otherwise burden the system.  Ashwagandha supports superior cellular performance, which allows the entire body to operate more efficiently.  And the results are astounding.

Our bodies are designed to be very efficient.  Over time and due to genetic and environmental consequences, bodies become weak, beginning at the most basic cellular level.  By strengthening cells with incredible nutrients like those found in Ashwagandha, the immune system is bolstered to help keep bodies healthy and vibrant.  This also reduces internal swelling that can lead to illness and disease.  Moreover, strong cells produce more energy to take on life’s daily tasks. 

Additionally, Ashwagandha has fantastic benefits for the heart and brain, and is known to be a natural mood elevator.  For the heart, Ashwagandha helps regulate normal cardiovascular system functions including blood pressure, balancing cholesterol and keeping blood healthy.  Brain benefits of Ashwagandha stem from its ability to reduce swelling and energize blood for better mental focus, less risk of degenerative diseases and improved neuro-protection.  As a mood enhancer, Ashwagandha has the incredible ability to calm the body and reduce stress and anxiety that can take a major toll.  This in turn improves blood pressure, mental clarity, fatigue, depression and other related issues.

How to take Ashwagandha

Zokiva’s pure Ashwagandha Powder can be added to almost any hot or cold dish to help you incorporate its phenomenal benefits into your daily diet.  To boost the immune system, create antioxidant-rich superfood concoctions such as a berry smoothie or cruciferous vegetable soup using one teaspoon of Ashwagandha per serving.  For a brain booster, try Ashwagandha in conjunction with foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as avocado, salmon and nut butters.  As a sleep aid, Ashwagandha can be stirred into warm milk or tea for more quality sleep. 

As with all superfood supplements, Ashwagandha Powder will be most effective when combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise.  Be sure to take Ashwagandha with a meal and at least 8 oz. of water.

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.
