BLISS QI 火
From the Solanaceae family, Ashwagandha Root is commonly known as “Indian Winter cherry” or “Indian Ginseng”. Used prominently as a herb of Ayurveda (the traditional system of medicine in India), it promotes a youthful state of physical and mental health and expands happiness. The root smells like horse (“ashwa”), that is why it is called Ashwagandha (on consuming it gives the power of a horse).
Ashwagandha Root improves brain and nervous system function and therefore enhances memory and the reproductive system promoting a healthy sexual and reproductive balance. Ashwagandha improves the body's defense against disease by improving the cell-mediated immunity. It also possesses potent antioxidant properties that help protect against cellular damage caused by free radicals.
- Bodily Effect: As a powerful adaptogen, it enhances the body's resilience to stress.
- Emotional Effect: Ashwagandha soothes the skin, boosts blood circulation and stimulates the release of dopamine in the brain which therefore relaxes and boosts cognitive powers.
- Spiritual Effect: Spiritually, Ashwagandha has often been referred to as the Elixir of Life, as it is believed to help balance your Qi and align your chakra energy.
