From Siberia With Health

Ashwagandha: an effective soothing Adaptogen.

Ashwagandha has traditionally been used in India for more than 4,000 years. It is considered both a food and a tonic to improve energy, memory, and learning, increase libido and prevent premature aging.

Ashwagandha soothes and has an anti-inflammatory effect. It is used to improve sleep, reduce anxiety, improve memory, and reduce inflammation and oxidative stress (damage from inflammation). Ashwagandha strengthens the immune system, is used in the treatment of arthritis, and can be useful in the treatment of fertility problems.

Eleutherococcus: an assistant to all athletes and an amplifier of the body's capabilities.

 “Siberian Ginseng” is one of the most studied Adaptogens to date. It is used to increase mental activity and performance, increase concentration, increase energy and endurance, reduce stress and fatigue, as well as to enhance immunity, and improve detoxification. It has anabolic properties, which means that it promotes muscle growth and prevents their destruction with age.

The ancient doctrine of herbal medicine of Siberian shamans.

Decoction of some plants is drunk instead of tea, as people say: "If the body requires it". Herbs that are in the house are used everywhere for this purpose: shilajit (mumijo), birch leaves, goatweed, chamomile, Chaga (Inonotus obliquus), rosehip, raspberry leaves, currant, etc. Usually, they are folded dry into a pillowcase, a bag, birch bark tuesques and brewed, drunk as tea or instead of water. The decoction is usually consumed only during the day.

Some plants are used in the treatment of specific diseases. In Taimyr (northern Siberia), indigenous tribes use dwarf birch leaves as an anti-inflammatory and antipruritic agent for mosquito bites. The bitten places are rubbed with freshly picked green leaves.

In the places of residence of the Evenk tribes (related to the Inuit), bath brooms are made from birch branches with leaves, a decoction of leaves in the form of tea is drunk with sore throat and cough; dry leaves are put in the bath and lie in them "if a cold wind blows through".

The tribes of the Nenets (Yamal Peninsula) with rheumatism (pain in the bones) burned a piece of birch growth (Chaga) on the patient's body. It was believed that the resulting easily healing wound, distracting bad juices from the diseased part of the body, bring relief to the patient.

Moss is especially popular among Siberian indigenous peoples. "Nyada" is what the Nenets call it. It is taken out from under the snow, steamed, and applied as a compress to sore joints, and in case of a cold - to the back and chest. The Nenets of the Taimyr Peninsula suggests using a decoction of deer moss (lichen, Icelandic moss) as a tonic, astringent and anti-inflammatory agent, since, in their opinion, a gelatinous decoction of lichens regulates the activity of the gastrointestinal tract, stimulates appetite, enhances the secretion of gastric juice. The Finno-Ugric Khanty tribe brews it as tea and drinks it as an expectorant for coughing and pneumonia.

Shilajit and Ashwagandha - both natural remedies work at the biological level, reducing stress, restoring the balance of neurotransmitters and having a beneficial effect on the general condition of the human body. High concentration of withanolides - Vitaferin A and Withanolide A - in Ashwagandha. Amino acids fulvic and humic acids in Shilajit - they compliment each other and create synergetic positive impact. 

The combo of Shilajit and Ashwagandha is an effective remedy for recovery from mental and physical fatigue, neuroses, sexual and cardiac weakness. Such a combination of natural remedies can increase mental and physical performance after severe illnesses, injuries and surgical interventions, as well as with asthenic conditions during the off-season, with a sharp change in the weather, with a change in climatic conditions.
