One Such Plant-Derived Wonder
Have you heard of the incredible healing power of adaptogens? Ashwagandha is used to counter stress and fatigue while promoting overall well-being. What’s more, it can be taken in a variety of ways, from capsules or tablets to teas and tinctures!
When my gynecologist advised me to start taking ashwagandha, I was hesitant at first. But upon entering the shop and meeting its two vibrant owners, who practically radiated health and joy, it didn’t take long for me to become convinced.
Nestled among all of the skincare items were a variety of Sun Potion products that included powdered ashwaganda as well as Tocos; according to them, these could be added into coffee or other liquid concoctions, which would make anything creamier! This finally pushed me over the edge, so I quickly grabbed up both products before heading out.
After discovering Ashwagandha’s unpleasant taste, I knew that finding a way to mask it was my priority. Utilizing oats, seeds, nuts, ashwagandha powder; cinnamon, and salt for flavor as well as tocos and berries for sweetness—all combined with kefir or coconut milk depending on whether you’d prefer your morning cereal hot or cold—the result is an incredibly nutritious breakfast treat!
In less than a month, I was able to acclimate to this new place and situation. Summertime had arrived; the balmy weather may have been a contributing factor to my newfound sense of peace, or it could simply be that I’d noticed something different within myself; either way, I felt far more relaxed and content.
