key ingredients
Ashwagandha (aka Indian ginseng or winter cherry) is an ancient medicinal herb, one of the most important in Ayurveda, an alternative medicine based on principles of natural healing. Ashwagandha is helpful in increasing energy levels and reducing inflammation and pain. Millet is one of the oldest cultivated grains in the world and has been grown throughout Africa and Southeast Asia for thousands of years. Millet is rich in niacin, which helps your body manage more than 400 enzyme reactions and is important for healthy skin and organ function. Millet is also a low GI food due to being high in fibre and rich in potassium—a mineral that supports heart health. Chia Seeds originate from central America, these seeds were a staple in the ancient Aztec diet, the seeds come from the plant Salvia hispanica, a member of the mint family. Despite their tiny size, chia seeds are highly nutritious. They're packed with fibre, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and various micronutrients.
