What is fermentation and why is it important?

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.

About Cordyceps Mushrooms

Mushrooms are amazing fungi. In fact, they’re so distinct in nature that they are classified as their own kingdom—separate from plants or animals. While there are approximately 140,000 species of mushroom-forming fungi in the world, science is familiar with only approximately 10%, while only 100 species or so are being studied for their potential health benefits.

And Cordyceps mushrooms (Cordyceps sinensis)—also known as caterpillar fungus—are among them.

Used for thousands of years, Cordyceps “mushrooms” grew only in the high-elevation mountain regions of the world—regarded as rare treasures in the past due to their location of growth and the determination and stamina necessary to procure them.

Fortunately, they are now cultivated commercially, so there’s no mountain climbing necessary to get them!

The use of Cordyceps first started after people noticed that animals consuming them had a positive response. Humans then noticed that Cordyceps offered a physical performance boost to them, too, including boosting exercise performance.†

Ancient Apothecary Fermented Cordyceps also contains ashwagandha in the form of Organic Ashwagandha Extract (Root and Leaf).

Ashwagandha is a well-known adaptogen, that can help keep the body resilient when it faces stressors.

Fermented Cordyceps features a clinically studied ashwagandha that is demonstrated to boost energy and reduce fatigue, assist in sustaining energy levels, to support a healthy response to stress and more.†

Overall, this clinically studied ashwagandha ingredient:

  • Supports a healthy response to stress†
  • Supports healthy energy levels†
  • Supports restful sleep†
  • Supports healthy physical energy levels†
  • Supports a positive outlook†
  • Supports focus and a healthy memory†
  • Supports healthy mobility†
  • Supports healthy joint function†
  • Supports healthy cortisol and DHEA balance†

Combined with the Organic Fermented Warming Botanical Blend PLUS the Organic Fermented Botanical Blend AND the power of clinically studied Ashwagandha, Ancient Apothecary Fermented Cordyceps helps boost performance (especially exercise), support a healthy response to stress, support restful sleep and more.†

To Use: Adults take 3 capsules daily with 8 ounces of water or your favorite beverage. May be taken with or without food.

“Why am I so tired?”

One of the most common questions people ask me is: "Why am I so tired all the time?"

If you’ve ever had this same thought, I want to point out one area that is often overlooked, although there are many factors that can influence a person’s energy levels and their feeling “tired.”

I am talking about one of the most unaddressed areas: how stress affects the body, including the adrenals.

Fact: The effects of stress on the adrenals can affect up to an estimated 80 percent of people. That’s right. Four out of five people can struggle with this and aren’t even aware of it.

However, taking steps to support a healthy response to stress can be simple and transformative. So, let's talk about how your adrenals work and how to begin supporting them.

Are Your Adrenals Stressed Out?

We live in a stress-filled society, and while we can tell ourselves that stress is “just a part of life,” our bodies don’t lie. They feel the effects of stress. In fact, if you’ve heard it said that you can’t fool Mother Nature, it’s true because there are natural biochemical bodily responses to stress—and they can make you feel tired.

The body typically responds to stress in three primary stages: when the body is alarmed, when the body tries to fight off stress and, finally, when the body is exhausted and just doesn’t have the fight left in it to deal normally with stress.  

Initially, the body’s biochemistry tends to react to stress in an orderly fashion. Stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system, which is part of the autonomic nervous system, activates the secretion of hormones from endocrine glands and constricts both the blood vessels and the involuntary muscles of the body. When the endocrine glands are stimulated, then heart rate, glucose metabolism and oxygen consumption increase.

These responses can culminate into what’s known as the “fight-or-flight response.” The fight-or-flight response is a natural physiological reaction that occurs in response to a perceived harmful event, attack or threat to survival.

Your Amazing Adrenal Glands

Your adrenal glands are two thumb-sized organs that sit above your kidneys. They're part of the endocrine system and are involved in many essential life functions. For example, your adrenal glands help produce more than 50 critical hormones, such as:

  • Estrogen
  • Progesterone
  • Cortisol (the stress hormone)
  • Cortisone
  • Norepinephrine
  • Dopamine

Epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine (noradrenaline) hormones are released in direct response to the sympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for the “fight-or-flight response” to stress or physical threats.

For example, the adrenal cortex, the outer layer of the adrenal gland, is responsible for the production of corticosteroids (also called adrenal steroids), including the well-known stress hormone cortisol.

Under conditions of stress, high amounts of cortisol are released—and chronic stress eventually depletes the body’s resources and its ability to adapt.

That’s when stress can really take a toll.

Excess adrenaline can wreak havoc on the human adrenals, digestive system, skin, heart and circulatory system, and even outlook.

Excess cortisol can adversely affect health, too.

Obviously, today when we’re under stress, we don’t run or fight as our ancestors did before us,  yet we have still have adrenaline (and cortisol) coursing through our blood system.

This can lead to a number of stress-related outcomes, including adrenal imbalances, which are often ignored, but the effects can greatly interfere with life and health.

What Sets Ancient Apothecary Herbals Apart?

Ancient Apothecary Fermented Herbs are also 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 often 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!

Who’s Stressed Out?

Did your hand go up? If so, you’re not alone.

A national poll points out that half of all adult Americans—and that’s approximately 115 million people—have experienced a major stressful event in the past year, while more than 1 in every 4 Americans say they had a great deal of stress in the previous month.

For those who are employed, one survey says that 8 out of 10 Americans are stressed out by at least one thing about their jobs.

And . . . 75 to 90 percent of all doctor visits are for stress-related problems and complaints.

So, it’s clear we have our share of stress.

And this is how the body responds to stress—every time. The nervous system releases a flood of stress hormones, including cortisol and adrenaline, which prepare the body for quick actions and responses to the perceived “threat.” Additionally, the heart pounds faster, muscles tighten, blood sugar spikes, blood pressure rises, breathing quickens and senses are on high alert.

This is exactly how the body should respond to occasional danger or threats, but you can imagine what this does to the body when stress is unrelenting and this process is repeated over and over again.

Of course, stress is a normal part of life and can come from the environment, body, emotions or thoughts. It can be a positive, motivational force OR it could be nearly non-stop and lead to negative effects, including trouble sleeping, low energy levels and altered immune system function.

Eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise and establishing good sleep patterns can go a long way to relieve stress, but sometimes the body may require more to keep its equilibrium.

Fermented Holy Basil was designed to help with that equilibrium, starting with Holy Basil.

Balancing Benefits of Holy Basil

Who knew that a small shrub with aromatic leaves—holy basil—could have benefits? Holy basil, also known as tulsi, is known in Ayurveda as an adaptogen, an herb which supports the body’s resilience, particularly during times of stress.†

To reiterate, when a person is stressed, the body goes into fight-or-flight mode, raising levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) and adrenaline as well as blood pressure and other stress responses. The body can fare pretty well for short periods of time in these conditions, but can take a hit with constant stress.

Fortunately, Ancient Apothecary Fermented Holy Basil can help support a healthy response to stress.†

Now for a significant stress buster: ashwagandha.

Ancient Apothecary Fermented Holy Basil also contains ashwagandha in the form of Organic Ashwagandha Extract (Root and Leaf).

Ashwagandha is an herb that has truly outstanding stress-soothing properties.† Additionally, ashwagandha can have a positive effect on the stress hormonecortisol, thought to be a major player in the adverse effects of stress. In short, ashwagandha can support healthy cortisol levels.† But it doesn’t stop there. Ashwagandha can also boost energy, support restful sleep, and support a positive mental outlook.†

The clinically studied organic ashwagandha in Fermented Holy Basil can:

  • Support a healthy response to stress†
  • Boost energy and reduce fatigue†
  • Enhance focus and mental stamina†
  • Assist in sustaining energy levels†
  • Help to support restful sleep†

Those benefits can go a long way to help shield the body from stress and its effects.†

Combined with the Organic Fermented Warming Botanical Blend PLUS the Organic Fermented Botanical Blend AND the clinically studied Ashwagandha, Ancient Apothecary Fermented Holy Basil can be an amazing stress buster.

So, if the stress of life is starting to get the best of you despite your healthy diet and lifestyle, maybe it’s time to consider the benefits of the specific herbs and spices found in Fermented Holy Basil.

To Use: Adults take 3 capsules daily with 8 ounces of water or your favorite beverage. May be taken with or without food.
