    Excellent service Excellent service! I have been using the King kanine products from miracle leaf as was originally buying them directly from king kanine in Florida, which meant waiting for it to come through customs so this is a much better and quicker service. I did recieve a faulty spray bottle with a bundle I had bought and without hesitation and without proof of a picture they did send me another bottle free of charge which promptly arrived the next day, the customer service was second to none and so friendly. I will continue to use Miracle leaf. The only 1 criticism I would have is that buying from the king kanine in florida they did have alot more sales and the sales were excellent and as the products are expensive I took full advantage of them and would bulk buy, so when florida king kanine have up to 40% sales off their products I will probably still use them to buy in bulk, but other than that Miracle leaf is a very reliable company, excellent and friendly customer service and very fast delivery so will go between the two companies but all in all its a 5 star! Anything that helps with my dog's arthritis and reduce any pain then I will do for him. So glad I can now get this product in Britain now, thanks Miracle leaf its a life saver for my dog! A happy customer and a happy hound!

Description

Balance your mind and body with this Ashwagandha powder.

 

Superior Ashwagandha KSM-66 is the most bioavailable, full-spectrum root extract of Withania somnifera. Ashwagandha is a medicinal herb that’s been used for over 3,000 years, especially in Ayurvedic medicine.This Ayurvedic adaptogen herb is traditionally used to balance the body, both physiologically and psychologically.

Known as the “Prince of Herbs” in Ayurveda, ashwagandha’s wide-ranging uses make this an excellent herb for vitality and general health.

 

Key medicinal value of Ashwagandha:

Nervous system tonic & adaptogen: Ashwagandha is an adaptogen which nourishes the nervous system and restores its overall health. The hormone cortisol is released from the adrenal glands to promote a fight or flight response when the body is under attack/in danger. Levels of cortisol also naturally rise in the morning and fall at night to help promote wakefulness and sleepiness. In today’s society quite often our cortisol levels are forever in a heightened state due to things like blue light from screens, long working hours, social media, commutes, pollution etc. A consistently high level of cortisol in the body is an assault on the nervous system. This leads to suppressed immune systems, reduced sleep, increased blood sugar levels and a plethora of other delirious outcomes for your health. Furthermore, when the body is under constant stress, it will favour the production of cortisol from the adrenals over other essential reproductive hormones like testosterone, estrogen and progesterone. In a world where it is near impossible to completely eradicate stress, ashwagandha is incredibly useful, as it increases our bodies resilience towards it, thus reducing these knock-on effects that cause such widespread damage in the body.

 

Ashwagandha also works to normalise responses in the body by modulating the release of stress hormones like cortisol from the adrenal glands: raising what is low (energy, memory capacity, mood) and increasing what is high (stress). It must not be mistaken for a stimulant as does not create a manic effect in the body, rather an inner energising calmness. For this reason, it makes an excellent medicine to promote recovery after illness and during convalescence, restoring vitality through its non-stimulating, but tonifying effects.

 

Balances blood sugar:  The anti-diabetic use of Ashwagandha is due to its effect at balancing blood sugar. Considering the detrimental effects of chronic high blood sugar levels on mood and memory, this herb can have a profound effect on mental health.

Immuno-modulator: As well as the indirect benefit on the immune system from the adapotgenic properties of Ashwagandha, it also directly increases the white blood cell and neutrophil counts in the blood and so is a useful tonic when ill and for patients with chronic immune deficiency.

Anxiolytic (meaning reduces anxiety):  studies have shown that it is a highly significant herb in reducing a huge number of different psychological measures of anxiety and depression.

Anti-inflammatory: Ashwagandha suppresses the production of pro-inflammatory molecules. This means it is of great use in various chronic diseases involving inflammation and will aid rheumatism, joint pain and neuralgias and can be used topically for wounds and swelling.

Aphrodisiac: one of the knock-on effects of chronic stress is sexual dysfunction. Clinical trials have shown that 3g dose daily for 1 year improved sexual performance of 71.4% of healthy ageing males (Kupparajan et al, 1980). Furthermore, it is used to increase fertility in men too with studies finding it improves sperm motility, concentration and volume.

Iron source: Ashwagandha is naturally high in iron and can boost your red blood cell count. This makes it a particularly helpful herb for those struggling with iron-deficiency anaemia.

 

Adaptogens help our bodies to adapt to the effects of hormone instability. Their action appears to increase our resistance to physical, chemical and biological stress in a non-specific manner. Whilst Ashwagandha’s mechanisms of action are not fully understood, there is increasing research to demonstrate its benefits towards common wellbeing concerns.

 

 

Ashwagandha can be taken in powder form. It has a slightly bitter taste on its own and so is traditionally mixed with ghee, honey and milk, or you can alternatively add it to smoothies, tea and coffees. To have a medicinal effect you need to be consuming 3-5g daily which is approximately 1-2 teaspoons.

Preparation: add 1/2 tsp (500mg) of the powder to hot water, coffee, tea, smoothie or tonic.

Treat yourself and stir a few teaspoons into a warm cacao and hot milk drink in the evening before bed to also take advantage of its sedative properties and inducing a deep night’s sleep.

 

 

One of our favourite recipes:

  • ½ teaspoon of Superior Ashwagandha
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao
  • 1 drop of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cardamom
  • Sweeten to taste with coconut blossom sugar
  • 1 cup of oat milk

Heat all the ingredients in a saucepan (or a milk frother!) and stir until hot. Enjoy!

What are adaptogens?

Adaptogens have been used for centuries to help the body adapt to stress and promote overall well-being. When your body is stressed it goes through a three-stage response called general adaptation syndrome (GAS). The three stages of GAS are: alarm, resistance, and exhaustion. Adaptogens exert an anti-fatigue effect and help you stay in the resistance phase longer – which allows you to persist through any physical or mental stressors
