Ayurvedic supplements restore wellness to your whole system by treating the underlying causes of imbalance while alleviating perceivable symptoms. Herbs have always been a vital component of an Ayurvedic lifestyle, from garden herbs and cooking spices to complex healing formulas.
Originating in India more than 5,000 years ago, Ayurveda is known as the world’s oldest healing science. Consisting of two Sanskrit words, ayush – meaning life or longevity and veda meaning deep knowledge or wisdom, Ayurveda means “life wisdom” or “knowledge of longevity”. Ayurvedic medicine has thrived over time and provided the foundation for modern systems of medicine. Its key facets are a personalized and seasonal diet, balanced lifestyle and Ayurvedic supplements.
Prepared in a vast range of methods, Ayurvedic supplements can be taken in powders, tablets, teas and jams. Ayurvedic herbs can also be applied topically – in soaps, massage oils and pastes.
Ayurvedic supplements are traditionally used to treat internal imbalances, handle seasonal or life changes and maintain life-long health. Both single herbal Ayurvedic supplements and synergistic formulas can be used to support, cleanse or balance the systems, tissues or organs of the body including:
- Digestion and Metabolism
- Mind, memory and sleep
- Skin and hair
- Blood and liver
- Heart, brain, lungs and reproductive organs
- Muscles, bones and joints
Traditional Ayurvedic supplements work optimally when taken according to your individual constitution, your current state of health, age and season.
