Info: 240 ml Amber Bottle
One of Ayurvedic medicine's most prized herbs, Ashwagandha is known for its rejuvenating properties not only on the nervous system, but also the immune and reproductive systems. It is an adaptogenic herb, meaning it can improve the health of your adrenal system in response to chronic stress.
To augment its properties, the organic ashwagandha in this formulation from Botanica has been fermented: first made into a tea, using natural spring water; then strained; then a SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast) and kefir grains along with organic cane sugar are introduced into it, to start a fermentation process which lasts at least 3 months, until all the sugar is gone. The result is a living whole food, loaded with additional enzymes, B vitamins, organic acids, friendly bacteria, and micronutrients which can not only help stave off anxiety, keep up your energy levels, and normalize your mood as you go about your day, but also help support overall immune system function and a healthy intestinal tract.
This product was previously marketed by Botanica as 'Fermented Ashwagandha Adaptogenic Tonic'.
Per 20 ml dose:
Fermented certified organic Ashwagandha decoction, 1.2% organic acids (from 240 mg Withania somnifera).
Also contains Kefir grains. This is a Vegetarian, Non-GMO, and Organic product. Gluten-, Dairy-, Soy-, and Sugar-free. This is a raw food that contains active culture; strands of culture may naturally appear.
Take one shot of 20 ml (4 teaspoons) per day -- either straight-up, or mixed with water or juice, if desired. Refrigerate after opening.
