is a modern take on a traditional Ayurvedic beverage. Made from a whole food blend of turmeric, ashwagandha, dates, coconut, cardamom, black pepper, and cinnamon. Turmeric has a rich history in Ayurvedic medicine for its anti-inflammatory properties. It helps to relieve pain and inflammation by modulating the inflammatory pathways that affect heart, joints, liver, gastrointestinal tract, brain, cellular health and the immune system. Ashwagandha (root) is an adaptogenic herb, because it rejuvenates and tonifies the entire system, especially the endocrine and immune systems. This herb helps nourish and restore optimal nervous and immune system health by normalizing mood, energy levels, and overall immune system function.
