If you read Z’Scoop’s Beauty Food article (December 30, 2015), you already know about some nutritious ingestible products, and that botanical-herbal homeopathic lifestyle cures are increasingly part of our daily rituals. More amazing super-foods are out there and Z’Scoop has rounded up some of the major players.
Ayurvedic and Adaptogentic Herbs and Botanicals
The popularity of holistic Ayurvedic supplements, ashwagandha, ginger and turmeric, are growing exponentially along with adaptogenic herbs and botanicals like ginseng, maca and schisandra.
Adaptogenic herbs/botanicals, referred to as tonics or rejuvenators, have been used for thousands of years to help the body adapt to stress.
Tumeric Wonder Powder
Tumeric is a principle spice ingredient in curry. But beyond its popularity in Indian cuisine …“tumeric has been the #1-selling herbal supplement for three years (2012-14),” according to Mark Blumenthal, founder and director of the American Botanical Council (ABC), and editor-in-chief of HerbalGram & HerbClip.
Some evidence exists that turmeric’s benefits may augment that of some leading drugs as an anti-inflammatory, anti-depressant and anti-coagulant. Often recommended to alleviate pain, tumeric may play a positive role in treating some forms of diabetes, arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease as well as lowering cholesterol and minimizing post-chemotherapy discomfort.
So what else is out there that you should know about?
