It’s no secret stress affects a lot of us. Stress can affect various aspects of our health, including the often-overlooked realm of digestion.
When stress becomes constant, our bodies respond by releasing cortisol, the primary stress hormone. Cortisol has a direct impact our digestive system.
High cortisol levels may can often create a slowdown in digestive processes, contributing to feelings of bloating and discomfort. Additionally, stress-induced changes in gut microbiota may further exacerbate digestive issues. Understanding this allows us to recognize the significance of stress management during the holidays, and year round.
Our elixir, Woodroot Tonic is designed for modern stress. Our potent formula features a blend of USDA Organic herbs known for their health benefits. One of the primary benefits of Woodroot is the reduction of stress for gut health.
- Organic Ashwagandha Root: This ancient herb is central to our blend. Revered for centuries, Ashwagandha is known for its remarkable stress-reducing properties. It helps regulate cortisol levels, providing a calming effect on the body and mind.
- Organic Cinnamon, Ginger, and Clove: These spices are not just for flavor. They have been used in traditional medicine to soothe stress and anxiety. Their warming properties are comforting and can help alleviate tension.
- Organic Lemon Peel and Orange Peel: Rich in vitamin C, these citrus peels contribute to reducing stress by supporting adrenal function and enhancing overall immune health.
- Organic Chaga Mushroom: Known for its adaptogenic qualities, Chaga helps the body manage stress more effectively.
