I’ve been experimenting with a really pleasant ashwagandha tea combination that works really well to manage stress, give you lot of energy and keep you warm in cold weather.
Try this simple ashwagandha tea recipe:
1-2 Tablespoon(s) Raw Ashwagandha
A few pinches of Cayenne Pepper.
The cayenne is a warming herb and pushes blood into the extremities, diluting blood vessels as it goes for better blood flow and, hence, a warmer body. It gives a sharp bite to the tea but in cold weather gets you moving nicely.
The hot water in the tea also will keep your body temperature up and hydrate you at the same time. When one is cold, we tend to drink less water so dehydration can be more of an issue in the winter than the summer for many of us.
An added benefit of drinking hot liquids is that we require less energy to keep our body warm, usually giving us more energy to get work or exercise done.
The ashwagandha works on our hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, helping re-balance it.
his system controls our reaction to stress among other important functions and ill be explaining it more in a blog post soon. Modern living tends to unbalance the HPA axis by dulling down the receptor sites and effectively turning the axis into negative-feedback loop, leading to overreactions to stressors.
Ashwagandha can thus be a vitally important herb to consume on a daily basis and totally safe to do so at the same time. Getting it in through a tea is an easy and tasty experience.
Our ashwagandha is completely raw and ideal for making teas. It is potent stuff and is a great value for such a wonder herb.
Some things I will be experimenting with include adding ginger to this ashwagandha tea combination and really ramping up this morning ignition switch. Of course, we could always use some more suggestions if you got any, so comment below.
Stay warm this winter and happy holidays!
