Show Notes

This episode features Kelly Broderick Lamie of A|Dash.

After dealing with postpartum depression, and hormone imbalances, Kelly decided to look beyond Western Medicine (which hadn't given her relief).

She began taking adaptogens, specifically Ashwagandha, and felt awesome improvements.

Kelly began diving deep into studying adaptogens and cordyceps which created a new passion.

From that passion A|Dash was created!

Cold brew coffee mixed with a full dose of Ashwagandha.

Specific Topics Covered In This Episode:

  • What Are Adaptogens? Adaptogens are herbal supplements that help the body manage stress on the neurological, endocrine and immune systems.
  • How do they work? They work at a molecular level to create balance in the hypothalamic, pituitary, and adrenal glands.
  • What are some other adaptogens besides Ashwagandha? Holy basil, Astragalus, and American ginseng.
  • What's the difference between adaptogens and cordyceps? Adaptogens are herbs and cordyceps are mushrooms.
  • How much should you take each day? And when? Generally for Ashwagandha, it's recommended to take 165-250 mg per day.
  • Make sure to consult your doctor before trying any new supplement.
  • And more!
