*Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb that’s been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. As an adaptogen, it’s great at combating stress and preventing the release of excess cortisol. By regulating the body’s physiological response to stress, ashwagandha is believed by a number of researchers to be able to stave off the anxiolytic effects of day-to-day, and even acute stress. In one very impressive, double-blind, placebo-controlled study conducted in the year 2000, 88.2% of all participants who took a form of the ashwagandha herb saw a marked improvement in their anxiety levels after 2 and 6 weeks, the pre-determined follow-up times of observance. Certainly more research should be conducted, but the more this wonder-herb is being studied the more promise it shows. As a suspected potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, it’s effects on the brain and body have been touted to help support everything from thyroid function, to adrenal fatigue, energy levels, brain cell activity, and immune system virility, to name a few.

* RXBAR is a whole food protein bar. What does that mean? Their bars are made with real, whole ingredients. RXBAR wants to build things the right way. They believe in the power of transparency, and let the core ingredients do all the talking with all of them listed on the front of the packaging. You’d likely recognize RXBAR on a store shelf: they’re the ones who have egg whites for protein, dates to bind, nuts for texture and other delicious ingredients like unsweetened chocolate, real fruit, and spices like sea salt or cinnamon. I’ve tried just about all of their flavors at this point and quite honestly they’re ALL delicious. But if I had to choose one personally, I’d say the Chocolate Sea Salt bar is my all-time favorite. But try them all out for yourself and see just how good they really are! RXBARs are gluten free, soy free, and dairy free. And there’s no added sugar. It’s very rare to see such an incredible, delectably-tasting snack that’s actually healthy. But RXBAR is just that.
