How to improve your health with Indian Herbs and Adaptogens
Well Balanced 360 Ep 05: How to improve your health with Ashwagandha, Ghee, & Shilajit
“Adaptogens are like the perfect pair of earrings,” says nutritionist Uma Naralkar. In the same way that earrings complete a beautiful outfit, adaptogens compliment and boost a healthy lifestyle, to help your body stay in balance.
Uma grew up in India with a passion for nutrition, but it wasn’t until she started working a corporate job in Hollywood that she realized the impact of nutrition on her life. When she got married and tried to conceive in her 20s, the late nights, alcohol, and lack of exercise from her job made it almost impossible. Uma started studying nutrition, got healthier, conceived her kids, and soon found a new calling -- helping other women balance their hormones and maintain a healthy lifestyle so they feel better (and, often, lose weight!).
In this episode of the Well Balanced 360 podcast, Uma and host Dr. Shivani talk about three popular adaptogens to support healthy cortisol levels, balance your hormones, and improve energy and sleep: Ashwagandha, Ghee, & Shilajit. Tune in to learn more about how these ancient Indian supplements can support a healthier, happier lifestyle.
“You have to remember that the foundation of your health still lies in nutrition, and what you’re consuming through whole food, as well as how active your lifestyle is, as well as your mindset and stress management. And once you are doing that, that’s where I like to throw adaptogens in, because they seal the deal. ”
