Ashwaganda

What is it? Ashwaganda belongs to the same family as the tomato. Ashwagandha is a plump shrub with oval leaves and yellow flowers. It bears red fruit about the size of a raisin. The herb is native to the dry regions of India, Northern Africa, and the Middle East, and today is also grown in more mild climates, including the United States.

Benefits: Ashwagandha contains many useful medicinal chemicals, including withanolides (steroidal lactones), alkaloids, choline, fatty acids, amino acids, and a variety of sugars. Known benefits:

·         Protects the immune system

·         Helps combat the effects of stress

·         Improves learning, memory, and reaction time

·         Reduces anxiety and depression without causing drowsiness

·         Helps reduce brain-cell degeneration

·         Stabilizes blood sugar

·         Helps lower cholesterol

·         Offers anti-inflammatory benefits

·         Contains anti-malarial properties

Coconut Butter

What is the main difference between coconut butter and coconut oil? The main difference between coconut butter and coconut oil is that coconut oil is oil extracted from the coconut while coconut butter is made from the meat of the coconut, and includes actual pieces of coconut meat in it.

Benefits: It’s rich in lauric acid, which boosts immunity and destroys harmful bacteria, viruses, and funguses. It actually boosts your metabolism, which aids in weight loss and increases energy levels. Coconut Butter is packed with healthy fats, so you feel full longer. It’s full of essential amino acids, calcium, and magnesium.
