New Range of Ayurvedic Medicinal Herbs For Better Health, Well-Being and Vitality

29 January 2018  |  Admin

Harness the power of nature with Ayurvedic herbs

We are pleased to be launching our new range of medicinal plant herbs: Organic Ashwagandha Powder, Organic Shatavari Powder, Organic Triphala Powder (3 fruits), Organic Holy Basil, Organic Brahmi Powder and Organic Guduchi Powder. They have all been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries.   

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world's oldest medical systems. It originated in India more than three thousand years ago and remains one of the country's most popular healthcare systems. In fact, more than 90 percent of Indians use some form of Ayurvedic medicine, according to the University of Minnesota's Centre for Spirituality & Healing. It is now gaining popularity in the West. 

The term Ayurveda combines the Sanskrit words 'ayur' (which means life) and 'veda' (which means science or knowledge). Three ancient books known as the great trilogy were written in Sanskrit more than 2000 years ago and are considered to be main texts on Ayurvedic medicine - Charaka Samhita, Sushruta Samhita, and Ashtanga Hridayam. All our new herbs are Ayurvedic staples. 

How Does Ayurvedic Medicine work?

Ayurveda uses a combination of plant herbs, diet, relaxation techniques (such as massage & meditation) and exercise to create health, well-being, and vitality in an individual. Ayurvedic medicine is a holistic approach. It strives to create a balance between the body, mind, and spirit, maintaining that this balance prevents illness, treats acute conditions and contributes to a long and healthy life. 

Ayurvedic wisdom states that all things in the universe, both living and non-living, are joined together. In fact, everything in the universe is actually made of the same five natural elements: space, air, fire, water, and earth. 

Ayurvedic practitioners use the terms "vata", "pitta" and "kapha" to describe body type and determine a course of treatment.

Vata types are said to have a light build with restless minds. Vata embodies the energy of movement and is therefore often associated with wind (and the air element). Vata is linked to creativity and flexibility. 

Pitta types have a moderate physique with muscular limbs and an alert mind. Pitta represents the energy of transformation and is therefore closely aligned with the fire element. 

Kapha types have a heavy build and are calm and patient. Kapha lends structure, solidity, and cohesiveness to all things, and is therefore associated primarily with the earth and the water elements. 

Adaptogenic Herbs

All of our new medicinal plant herbs are also known as adaptogenic herbs. These are herbs that can help with anxiety, chronic stress and improve overall well-being. The concept of plants with revitalizing properties that can enhance health has been around for thousands of years - as we have seen with Ayurveda. However, adaptogen is a modern word used to describe them since the 1940s. There have been scientific studies on adaptogenic herbs - which suggest that the claim of increasing tolerance to stress is true. See the study here. 

Asparagus Racemosus or medicinal Shatavari

Although our new herbs are natural products, care should always be taken when making changes to your diet and introducing herbs into your healthcare routine. Always start with a small quantity and listen to your body. Consult a professional or healthcare practitioner if unsure. Look out for future blog entries on each of the new herbs.

The following quotation beautifully describes medicinal herbs and Ayurveda: 

"Ayurvedic Herbalism is not of the east or the west, of ancient or modern time. It is a science of living that encompasses the whole of life, and which relates the life of the individual to that of the universe. A knowledge that belongs to all living beings." (Dr. David Frawley & Dr. Vasant Lad, 'The Yoga of Herbs').

We're available Mon-Fri 9am - 6pm

Trustworthy Supplier

Being a big believer in the power of turmeric its important to me to find a supplier who provides turmeric that is tested regularly for the all too common unscrupulous addition of metal content. Stay Fresh Organics are one of the few companies that do this.

Used Organic True Cinnamon powder (Ceylon) from this company a number of times. They were out of stock recently but as promised they emailed to say they now had it in stock. Fast dispatch service. Will continue to use Stay Fresh Organics as fresh products and certainly will recommend.
