Used in Ayurvedic medicine, Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is an
adaptogenic herb that helps to restore balance to the body, including
supporting a healthy stress response, mood and memory. Additionally, our
AuroraBlue® Alaskan Blueberry Complex—compared to other wild and cultivated
blueberries—contains the highest antioxidant activities (up to 10 times
higher) to support brain health and a positive mood.

Understanding the Human Microbiome
The human microbiome is an evolving collection of trillions of microbial
organisms living in and on the human body. Leading research is only just
starting to unlock the vast mysteries of the microscopic world of the human
So just what could these good bacteria be doing for us? According to David
Perlmutter, M.D., these beneficial microorganisms may be responsible for:
- Aiding in digestion and the absorption of nutrients†
- Supporting immune system function†
- Producing and releasing important enzymes and substances†
- Helping with stress management†
- Assisting with countless healthy body systems and processes†
Just What the Doctor Formulated
It’s time to take care of our microbiome. It’s up to us to support and
nourish it through what we eat, what we expose ourselves to in our
environment and the kind of lifestyle we lead. Dr. Perlmutter advocates
honoring this system of health through understanding and avoiding the three
biggest forces that work against the health of the gut’s good bugs.
Force #1: Exposure to substances that kill or otherwise adversely
change the composition of the bacterial colonies. These include toxic
chemicals used in conventional agriculture,household cleaners and in food
(e.g., sugar, gluten), and even in water (e.g., chlorine).
Force #2: Unhealthy diet, and poor nutritional support for the
diverse tribes of good bacteria (eg. prebiotic fiber).
Force: #3: Stress
Dr. Perlmutter’s Essentials
To Support a Healthy Microbiome
Probiotics, Enzymes and Prebiotic Fiber work synergistically to support
a healthy, whole food, organic diet.†
