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.
