Here is a simple way to get the wonderfully adaptogenic herbs ashwaganda and maca into your breakfast smoothie everyday. Sweetness from maca powder, banana, cinnamon and apricots masks the often bitter taste of the powdered ashwagandha root. Make it creamy with nut butter of your choice and a handfull of oats to get you through the morning. Adaptogens do just that, they help your body become more resourceful and able to adapt to the stressors of modern living. An adaptogen can improve sleep, state of mind, immune response and general well being.
