WHAT IS THE BEST MACA POWDER?

WHAT IS THE BEST MACA POWDER? Another adaptogenic herb? YES, maca is on the long list of adaptogenic herbs which helps the body naturally return balance and build resilience during times of stress. The three types of stress it can help with are emotional, physical and mental.  The maca plant, known scientifically as Lepidium meyenii, is sometimes referred to as Peruvian ginseng.

According to www.themacaexperts.com, Maca works in the endocannabinoid system of the brain and body.

WHAT ARE ADAPTOGENIC HERBS-the history, types and uses

I first heard the word ADAPTOGENIC when I started taking Moon Balance and learning about the herbs in it.  But what are adaptogenic herbs?  They are a group of nontoxic plant herbs including some mushrooms that help support the body’s natural ability to deal with stress.  The body uses adaptogens to help protect against mental, physical and emotional stress.  I love learning about all these herbs and trying supplements containing them.  Most recently I tried Moon Balance that has Shatavari and Maca in it.  My article what is Shatavari explains many details about the herb Shatavari and how Moon Balance has helped me.

WHAT IS SHATAVARI-the alternative choice for health

Shatavari has numerous benefits unlike any other herb and has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. It nourishes the body and is especially beneficial for the female reproductive system.  When I published a review on Moon Balance, the ingredient Shatavari was on the label. I had never heard of this ingredient before so I decided it would be fun to research it.

 So what is Shatavari? Shatavari is from India and is a member of the asparagus family. It’s also known as Asparagus racemosus and is an adaptogenic herb. It can also be found in Africa and Asia flourishing in shady and low altitudes. The tuberous root is the portion that is used to prepare the powder. The rejuvenating tuberous root has a sweet taste combined with a little bitter taste. The roots are the inspriation behind the name shat meaning one hundred and avar meaning below, literally translating to mean the plant that has one hundred roots below ground.

BEST ALKALINE WATER MACHINE REVIEWS-does it work?

The best alkaline water machine reviews is a topic I’ve been wanting to share more about. But why should you get an alkaline water machine? Some advocates of alkaline water believe it can neutralize acid in the body. People that suffer from a variety of medical conditions for example acid reflux or unhealthy skin may consume alkaline water to improve their health.

It’s a bit of a mystery exactly what it can help with if anything and there are very few studies published. I still think its helpful to see the different machines and decide if you want this in your kitchen. Be aware though that any serious medical condition should always be discussed with your doctor.

THE BEST VITAMINS FOR WOMEN-and why I went to a Naturopath

I really love this topic the best vitamins for women for many reasons. The main reason took place many years ago when I was just feeling so awful. I wasn’t sleeping through the night and felt so tired during the day. One morning I woke up feeling very lethargic. My bones ached and I felt like I was going to faint. I was also experiencing a chronic cough that would cause me to vomit at times due to the severity of the cough. I knew something wasn’t right but at the time I chose to put everyone before my own health. I really had never taken care of my health and finally decided to do something about it. It was a time in my life that family was the center of my universe just like they always are. I reached out for help but there wasn’t anybody home to help me.
