Fresh Ashwagandha is Different
From its roots in Ayurvedic medicine, Ashwagandha has been a cherished adaptogenic herb for centuries, traditionally associated with strength, calm, and balance. While often consumed in various forms, fresh Ashwagandha offers a unique and holistic experience. In this article, we'll explore the advantages of fresh Ashwagandha.
🌱 Embracing the essence of freshness: The moment we harvest Ashwagandha, a remarkable effervescent odor fills the air, reflecting the vitality of the freshly-picked root. With a more yin quality than its dried counterpart, fresh ashwagandha provides a distinctive experience. At Portland Ashwagandha Farm, we strive to capture this vibrant essence by beginning the maceration process just after harvest. Our spagyric tinctures, which combine herbal extracts with the purified minerals of the plant, are crafted to embody "earth energy in a bottle."
💧 Second is the consideration of bioavailability: Tinctures are often chosen for their perceived ability to offer a more direct route for absorption compared to pills, powders, capsules, or gummies. The liquid form of ashwagandha is thought to be more readily absorbed, which may contribute to its effectiveness. This might be a consideration for people with digestive issues or those who have difficulty swallowing pills. As pills can take time to absorb into the body, the spagyric tincture form is believed to provide a more immediate effect.
📏 Third is the value of precise dosages: The liquid tinctures (with our calibrated droppers) offer a more accurate dosage than other forms of ashwagandha. With a liquid dropper, you can easily measure out the exact amount of ashwagandha you need, ensuring you're getting the proper dosage. This is particularly important as ashwagandha dosage can vary depending on the individual's needs and wellness goals. This also allows people the flexibility to modulate their Ashwagandha intake (for example, taking different amounts at different points in the day) in ways that they can't with pills and gummies.
Though we recommend taking these tinctures sublingually, by placing them under the tongue for faster absorption, they can just as well be added to other things. You can add the tincture to your nighttime tea, morning coffee, juice, pre-workout shake, or simply in some sparkling water.
Fresh ashwagandha in the tincture form is a popular choice for its benefits, such as ease of use and flexible dosing options. The freshness of the root also ensures that the unique effervescent odor and yin qualities are preserved, providing a more authentic and holistic experience.
