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.†

“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:
- Cortisol (the stress hormone)
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.

Ancient Apothecary Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender (Lavandula augustifolia)
- Certified USDA Organic and Non GMO
- 15mL / .5 ounce
- Calming, Clean Scent
For topical, aromatherapy or dietary purposes.
Dr. Axe says, “I believe lavender essential oil can be a supporter of healthy skin†, and when I get a minor scrape or struggle with skin issues, lavender oil is my go-to. I just mix a few drops with a little bit of coconut oil and rub it right onto my skin. I also, like to use it for a relaxing massage, for a calming bath, or even to diffuse it right before bed or place a drop on my pillow at night.“
Lavender essential oil is the most used essential oil in the world today, but the benefits of lavender were actually discovered over 2,500 years ago. Because of its powerful properties, lavender oil benefits abound and it’s been used both cosmetically and overall health for centuries.
Historically, the Egyptians used lavender for mummification and as a perfume. In fact, it’s said that when King Tut’s tomb was opened in 1923, there was said to be a faint scent of lavender that could still be detected after 3,000 years.
Early and modern aromatherapy texts advocate for lavender’s use as a microbial-balancing essential oil.† The leaves and stems of the plant were used to prepare decoctions for health-supporting purposes as well as for cosmetic purposes. The Romans used lavender oil for bathing, cooking and purifying the air.
Over time it’s become obvious: With its calming properties and varied uses, lavender oil is often a must-have oil people simply don’t want to be without.
Lavender oil is a favorite addition to perfumes, soaps and candles because of its pleasant floral scent. But it’s more than just a charming smell. It also has a whole host of benefits that date back thousands of years. In fact, in the Bible, lavender oil was among the aromatics used for anointing those with health needs.
Then there’s this famous account: Do you remember the biblical story about Mary breaking a bottle of spikenard on the ground and then washing Jesus’ feet with her hair? The oil in that bottle is thought to have been lavender, chosen specifically for its elegant, soothing support. And that’s just one piece of lavender oil’s incredible history.
Another amazing story happened over 100 years ago when a French researcher named René-Maurice Gattefossé suffered a mishap that affected the skin on his arms. The incident happened quickly and he was in his lab, so he promptly put his arms in what he thought was a vat of water. Instead, and to his surprise, he soaked his arm in a vat of lavender oil and—by accident—he experienced firsthand (so to speak) the benefits lavender oil can have for the skin.† In fact, he believed his skin was greatly helped, thanks to lavender oil.
