Kapha Fall Support Kit
Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural wellness born out of the Vedic texts of India. In a nutshell, there are three doshas, or body types — Vata, Pitta and Kapha, with each having a unique set of characteristics and guidelines for balance.
Traditionally speaking, in Ayurveda, Kapha types tend to run cold, so saying goodbye to the warmth of summer can be a challenge. So the name of the game for Kaphas in fall? Remain balanced without reaching too often for foods with oily, heavy qualities.
Kaphas are traditionally thought to be full of “ojas,” the “sap of life,” when in balance. But during fall — the “Vata” time of year — Kaphas may often take certain steps for continued wellness balance. (Hint: Lay off the meat and indulge in veggies and spicy, whole foods!)
This Ayurveda-inspired kit features ingredients highly regarded throughout time to support the kapha constitution, including nourishing ashwagandha, an herb used for thousands of years to balance out kapha types.
For Kapha types, this kit provides ingredients like turmeric and triphala, warming botanicals, organic greens and an Ayurvedic-inspired probiotic blend to support healthy elimination and more through the seasonal transition.

What Sets Ancient Apothecary Herbals Apart? Live Fermentation, Essential Oils Infusion, Organic Herbs & Spices, and a delivery system of Warming Botanicals and Digestive Bitters.
Ancient Apothecary Fermented Herbs are powered by fermentation—our own proprietary, patent-pending, dual-stage, live fermentation process.
What is fermentation and why is it important?
Fermentation is an ancient process used to break down food into more absorbable components.
Here are some key benefits of fermentation:
- Fermentation pre-digests nutrients and beneficial compounds into more accessible and bioavailable forms.
- In some instances, fermentation can actually make certain foods more edible and more digestible, such as roots, leaves, nuts, tubers, seeds and grains.
- Fermentation can increase the presence of probiotics in the food.
Each Ancient Apothecary Herbal formula is infused with Organic Essential Oils and CO2 extracts.
The Power of Essential Oils
Essential oils are often referred to as the “life blood” of plants and trees. They are the concentrated oils of herbs, plants and trees.
For example, it takes approximately 3,000 lemons to make one kilo of lemon essential oil, while one 15mL bottom of lemon essential oil takes about 75 lemons! To go deeper, there are nearly 300 drops in a 15mL bottle, so 1 drop of lemon essential oil is made by using ¼ of a whole lemon!
Likewise, 150 pounds of lavender is necessary for just one pound of pure lavender essential oil, while one 15mL bottle of lavender oil requires 27 square feet of lavender plants. With approximately 300 drops of lavender oil in a 15mL bottle, one drop equals nearly .09 square feet of lavender plants.
The bottom line: here’s a whole lot of beneficial plant life in essential oils.
These precious oils can be distilled or extracted using CO2 and bottled, and when steam distilled, essential oils keep the “frequency” that they had when they resided in the plant.
Additionally, essential oils provide lipo-soluble fractions of plants. Since plants contain both water- and fat-soluble active compounds, we believe it is important to consume a full spectrum of beneficial compounds. Fats and oils are beneficial for the effective delivery of key antioxidant compounds.
Therefore, essential oils infused into herbal formulas can help serve as a delivery system for botanicals.
Here’s the takeaway: Essential oils are some of Nature’s wonders
That’s why you’ll find essential oils in each and every Ancient Apothecary Fermented Herbs.
The Importance of Organic Herbs
It’s no secret that in conventionally grown foods and herbs, farmers often use a variety of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides synthetic fertilizers and many other "processing agents" which often remain in and on the food or herbs. Even washing these foods or herbs can’t get many of these off the produce.
Why? Because nearly 20 percent of the 17,000 (or more) pesticides in use today are known as systemic pesticides—those which reside inside the plant via its root system and have permeated the plant. That’s means they’re everywhere within the plants themselves and can’t be washed off.
To try to avoid these chemicals in and on our food, many people choose to go organic. That reason alone is enough to make going organic is all the rage these days.
But another important benefit of organic food and herbs is that, because they’re grown organically, these plants are able to produce their own natural defenses against pests.
As a result, these plants can have some of the very compounds and natural defenses that we can and often should include in our diet.
That’s why you’ll find these health-supporting organic herbs in each and every Ancient Apothecary Fermented Herbs.
PLUS, each Ancient Apothecary Herbal formula features an Organic Fermented Warming Botanical Blend of black pepper, ginger, long pepper and sprouted cumin.
In Ayurveda, black pepper, long pepper and ginger are tied to the Sanskrit word trikatu, meaning three spices or three peppers. Trikatu is an Ayurvedic blend of the fruits of black pepper, long pepper and the rhizomes of ginger.
Each Ancient Apothecary Fermented Herbal formula also features an Organic Fermented Bitter Botanical Blend of milk thistle, dandelion and peppermint.
Bitter botanicals or "bitters" are historically regarded as beneficial.
By combining organic fermented botanicals, whole organic herbs and spices, hot water herbal extracts and lipo-soluble fractions, Ancient Apothecary Fermented Herbal formulas feature a full-spectrum infusion of the best that Nature has to offer!
The Importance of Cortisol-DHEA Balance
Balance is good, especially when it comes to life, diet, emotions, relationships, and even hormones.
That goes for the hormones cortisol and DHEA (sometimes referred to as the “mother of all hormones”), too.
Typically, a lovely balance between the hormones cortisol and DHEA is maintained in a person’s younger years. But just as other things can change as the years progress, the balance can become an imbalance because, as we age, DHEA levels naturally decline.
In fact, generally DHEA levels peak around age 25, and then decline at about 2% per year after that due to the natural aging process, so that can mean there can be up to a 50% decline from age 25 to 50, followed by a further decline by age 75. However, stress, an unhealthy body, sugar intake, nicotine, excess caffeine and alcohol can also take their toll on DHEA.
When DHEA is diminished, cortisol’s actions aren’t kept in check and can lead to stress-related issues.
Cortisol is often referred to as a primary “stress hormone,” but it shouldn’t necessarily be villainized, since it functions as an important hormone in the body. It’s secreted by the adrenal glands and plays a normal role in proper glucose metabolism, blood pressure regulation, immune function and the body’s natural inflammatory response.
Truth is, small increases of cortisol can give a quick burst of energy during life or death situations, boost memory functions and immunity, lower pain sensitivity and help the body maintain homeostasis.
However, too much and prolonged levels of cortisol in the bloodstream—such as when chronic stress is in play—can negatively affect cognitive performance, thyroid function, lead to blood sugar imbalance, adversely affect muscle tissue and bone density, blood pressure, immunity, and weight..
DHEA, which is also an adrenal hormone, can balance the action of excess cortisol.
Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb that helps the body adapt to fight the effects of stress, including the stress hormone cortisol, which has been implicated in numerous issues.† In fact,in studies, ashwagandha has been shown to tame over-the-top cortisol levels significantly.† Not only were cortisol levels brought into balance, but other benefits included increased energy, better sleep, less fatigue, healthy blood sugar levels (already in the normal range) and healthy lipid profiles.†
Simultaneously, ashwagandha has been able to help bolster DHEA levels to balance cortisol out.† As an added bonus, ashwagandha has positive effects on overall body health.†
Ashwagandha has also been used by Ayurvedic practitioners for thousands of years and features flavonoids and steroidal lactones called withanolides. Withanolides are believed to help support a healthy response to stress, to bolster mental and mood outlook, immunity and energy levels.†
The ashwagandha in Ancient Apothecary Fermented Ashwagandha features two forms of clinically studied ashwagandha—ashwagandha root extract (5% withanolides) AND ashwagandha (root and leaf, 10% withanolides).
