Superfood Spotlight: Ashwagandha 0Over the last year or so, herbs from a number of healing traditions have gained popularity in the wellness world and are crossing over into the mainstream. These herbs are often referred to as ‘adaptogens’. Adaptogens are essentially non-toxic plants that aid the body in resisting and dealing with internal and external stressors of all kinds. They help the body adapt! Many of them work by, as Dr. Brenda Powell states, “doing for your adrenal glands what exercise does for your muscles”.
