Nourishment and HealthIn Ayurveda, nourishment and hydration are essential for proper health. When our body is low on nutrients and liquids, we may feel more tired and weaker than usual. Thus, it is essential to replenish and fuel our bodies and minds with a healthy diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, soups, juices, and water. However, in some instances, if our bodies are particularly run-down, it can be helpful to supplement with an Ayurvedic tonic for energy.
Ayurvedic Tonic for EnergyAn Ayurvedic tonic for energy brings healing and nourishing properties to our body. Below are two Ayurvedic tonics for energy that will support health and hydration.
Vata-ADEVata-ADE is a typical hydrating concoction to increase the absorption of water into the body. Continually sipping water alone doesn’t assimilate or absorb as we hope. Thus, we maximize our water intake by adding a few vital nutrients like salt, lemon, and maple syrup. Vata-ADE recipe:
- 1 liter of water, boiled and then cooled
- ½ lemon juiced
- 1 tsp high-quality salt
- 1 Tbsp maple syrup
ChyawanprashAnother Ayurvedic tonic for energy is the nutritive jam Chyawanprash. This medicinal tonic is one of the most popular supplements in all of Ayurveda due to its powerhouse of ingredients and health benefits. Packed with medicinal herbs and spices that support the building of ojas, or our subtle immunity layer, Chyawanprash replenishes nutrients that are lost throughout everyday life and supports bodily systems for optimal functioning. Chyawanprash is also particularly beneficial for improving energy because it contains a variety of adaptogens. Adaptogens are herbs that nourish your hormones and adrenals to help your body adapt to stress and overcome fatigue, lethargy, and burn-out. To take:
- Boil 1 cup of water
- Add 1-2 tsp of PIOR Living Chyawanprash
- Mix well and enjoy!
