Grow Your Very Own Garden Of Health

Summer is the season of growth. It is the perfect time to grow your own garden and enjoy its reaps. But, why not grow our personal health garden instead of some other plants that may or may not survive the length of time? NuvoMed selects its plants and herbs carefully and vigilantly in order to get the best of pure plant extracts. It’s time you do the same at your home. Growing some of these healthy herbs is easier and more beautiful than you think!

Grow Shatavari- The Fertility Herb

In our previous blog, we spoke about how stress affects women. Shatavari is one of the herbs that NuvoMed uses for such problems. Shatavari is a part of the Asparagus family and, when translated, literally means ‘Hundred roots’. It is a beautiful ornamental vine that looks like a lush carpet on your pillar or wall and has a variety of health benefits. Growing Shatavari is very easy. It can be grown using seeds which are easily available online. Propagating it from an existing plant by cutting its stem by the bud and replanting it is another way to grow Shatavari. What’s best is that it requires low to moderate amounts of water, so if you forget to water your plants one day, it will still continue to thrive on its own! In fact, over-watering the plant can kill it. With pruning and composting from time to time, your Shatavari can bloom beautifully in your backyard. When the cure for your stress ailments is growing right in your backyard, you have no worries!

Grow Bacopa- The Memory Enhancer

Bacopa Monnieri, also known as Moneywort, is a bitter herb that has multiple health benefits. It enhances memory and improves focus. It is also an herb that can grow in the garden as well as an aquarium! Bacopa is an ornamental, flowering, aquatic plant. It requires a lot of water and a limited amount of vermicompost. The best part about bacopa is that it grows with limited to zero sun exposure. This  means that with water, it can thrive all year round. One of the specialities of Bacopa is that when it is grown in an aquarium, it grows straight upwards and does not creep around. However, when the shoot grows out of the water, it acts like a creeper and covers the water surface. When growing outside water, it also flowers. Summer is the flowering season for Bacopa. So, this is a perfect time to grow some. The best way to grow Bacopa is to propagate from the existing plant. Bacopa seeds are also easily available.

Grow Stevia- The Natural Sweetener

Stevia is another herb that can be homegrown. It is one of the most useful herbs to possess, especially if you have a diabetic person in your family or if you are looking for a healthy alternative for your sweet cravings. Stevia is a perennial plant, which means it can be grown around the year. It requires a warm temperature environment and a daily watering schedule. It can be easily grown in a warm spot indoors. Raw Stevia leaves are at least 40 times sweeter than sugar. However, when dehydrated and powdered, it is about 200 to 300 times sweeter than sugar. Moreover, Stevia is a calorie-free sweetener and safe for people suffering from diabetes. Stevia seeds are easily available in the market.

Grow Moringa and Neem- The Natural Antioxidants

Moringa is another herb that can be grown at home. When planted in an open area, it can grow like a tall tree and bear pods. These pods can be consumed by cooking it in various delicacies. It can also be plated in a pot. However, it requires warmth and a moderate amount of water, which can be done indoors. Moringa leaves are also nutrient-rich and ground moringa leaves make a good face pack. Neem is another bitter herb known for immunity enhancement that grows in climatic conditions suitable for moringa. Neem, when grown in an open area, grows rapidly and has air purifying qualities.

We may delude ourselves into thinking that we nourish our garden, but that can’t be farther from the truth. It is, in fact, the garden that nourishes us. Plants provide us with nutrition and surround us with their beauty. Gardening is also known to have a zen-like calming effect on humans, which is an added advantage. So, pick up your tools and get ready. Grow plants for more than one reason; to please your soul, to calm your mind, to fill your kitchen, to challenge the elements, for novelty and for the beauty of it. Happy Gardening!

Enhancing Immunity During Seasonal Shift

As winter ends and spring is nearly on the horizon, the weather starts warming up. Flowers start blooming and the air becomes crisp. What’s more that happens is the number of pollen grains increase in the air and mold starts growing. Warmer weather promotes survival and replication of bacteria and viruses effortless. And all these changes cause illness which we commonly refer to as seasonal diseases.

Variety of these factors cause the human immune system to go into overdrive making our bodies vulnerable to different kinds of diseases. Boosting your immunity is the key to being disease free in these seasonal shifts. It is a widely known fact that every time a person catches a cold or flu, it is due to a different virus. To prevent yourself from these viruses and bacteria, the immune stimulants need to be equally potent.

What Are Antioxidants And How They Help You
As we breathe, we inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. This oxygen though extremely important for our survival reacts with bodily chemicals and results in an oxidation process which is essentially the wear and tear of the cells. Every day multiple cells die and regrow. But when oxidation occurs, it releases free radicals in the body. These free radicals are directly linked to the wear and tear of the cells. Free radicals are also known to have a major role in heart diseases, cancer, and many other serious conditions.

Antioxidants neutralize the free radicals caused by oxidation in the body. This process promotes the healthy regeneration of cells and reduces the damage caused by free radicals. This process is what we commonly call as boosting immunity. When immunity is enhanced, the body is capable of generating T-cells whenever required. T-cells are the body’s natural fighters against pathogens and alien bodies.

There are a variety of herbs that are rich in antioxidants and boost immunity without any side effects. Better the potency of these extracts, better are the results on your body. These herbs are non-addictive and beneficial in the long run by promoting overall healthy body function

NuvoMed has a range of immunity-boosting products that makes it possible to enjoy the warm weather or any seasonal changes without the fear of illnesses. The pure plant extracts provide the body with necessary antioxidants to boost your immunity. Immune stimulants improve the functioning of your system exponentially, thus helping the body resist various infections. Not only do immune boosters protect you from a variety of illnesses, but they give you a better chance at fighting those allergens that cause you rashes and runny noses.

Immunostimulant Herbs
Neem, enriched with pure extracts, is a traditional Indian herb that is bitter and has cooling properties. It is known to promote health by purifying the blood and improve circulatory function. Amla, commonly known as Indian Gooseberry, is one of the unique products as it recognizes five of the six tastes recognized by Ayurveda. It is known for ridding disease-causing free radicals from the body. Regular consumption of Amla is known to increase the lymphocyte, or WBC, that are directly responsible for the immune actions. The miracle tree, also known as Moringa, is a wonder herb. It is rich in antioxidants and bioactive compounds, including vitamin C. Long term usage of Moringa is known to promote hair growth, glowing skin, improved eyesight, and healthy gums along with enhanced immunity function. Ashwagandha, or Indian ginseng, is known for its super qualities in Ayurvedic medicine. The adaptogens and 5% withanolides present in Ashwagandha promotes homeostasis, i.e. cell regeneration. Ashwagandha is known for its fortifying action on stress. Amla, Piper Nigrum, and Spirulina are some of the other immunity boosters that, when blended together, make “superfood”. NuvoMed Immuno Booster Capsule is one such superfood blend that is available to enhance immunity. It increases the uptake of minerals in the body and has a certain anti-stress effect, leading to overall health and balance between the mind and the body.

Effect Of Stress On Women

We live our life at super speed. This speed is not usually inversely proportional to the brain’s ability to adapt to the change. This fast pace results in an increased heart rate. When the heart rate increases, the brain has a tendency to record that instance as a threat. So, when the same situation is presented, the brain recalls the threat and releases a hormone called cortisol. Cortisol is commonly known as a stress hormone. Testosterone reacts differently in stressful situations. It has been observed that testosterone levels change with respect to stress, but it is also equipped with fighting stress at a higher rate. Women, however, react differently to stress. It is also observed that women are more susceptible to stress than men.

Men and women have very different anatomies, and anatomical changes are not only physical but chemical as well. Women possess female hormones, i.e. estrogen and oxytocin. Women also have low levels of testosterone. However, women are known to experience regular hormonal changes in their bodies owing to their anatomies. When the cortisol level increases, it wreaks havoc in their hormonal balance. Estrogen levels take a nosedive and oxytocin, or the feel-good hormone in women, suffers as a result. All these complex chemical changes lower a woman’s immunity, thereby opening the gates to a variety of health issues. A women’s brain suffers chemical changes through multiple stages of her life. Brain shrinkage is observed in case of higher hormonal activity, such as pregnancy. Stress also reacts in a similar way. Brain shrinkage is a physical effect on a woman that is not visible but can be observed in behavioral patterns. Irritability, fatigue, lowered memory and learning ability are all the signs indicating this issue. The more boring or more intense the activity is, the faster the brain gets tired. Loss of will power, frequent mood changes, and irritable behavior can later lead to depression, with no oxytocin available to elevate and uplift the mood. All these changes then affect the cardiovascular functions. Along with that, lower bone density is observed due to such high hormonal imbalance in the body. Libido is also affected due to hormonal havoc in the body.

A delicate balance of stress hormone with other hormones is crucial for normal thyroid functioning. When this balance tips over the scales, thyroid related problems arise rather quickly. Therefore, it is extremely crucial for women to maintain a delicate balance in their life and anatomy to stay healthy and fit. A healthy diet and exercise are some of the ways to achieve the goal, but it is not always that simple or possible with our hectic schedules. NuvoMed has a variety of dietary supplements made of pure plant extract for maximum potency and optimum effect. Shatavari, or Asparagus Root, is known for its unique ability to maintain hormonal balance and regularize menstrual cycles in women. It is also known for boosting immunity and supporting the reproductive system. Increase in milk production in lactating mothers is another advantage of this herb. Ashwagandha promotes homeostasis, i.e. is cell regeneration. Ashwagandha is known for its fortifying action on stress. NuvoMed also has a wide range of immunity and antioxidant products as well as mind and memory products made from pure plant extracts, which grants a higher potency rate as compared to other dietary supplements. Bacopa keeps the mind sharp and alert while Chamomile uplifts the mood by calming down the upheaval in the body caused by stress. Stress Care and Stress Relief are unique products designed solely for coping with stress and maintaining a healthy life.

So, beat the stress with herbal dietary supplements by your side. Stay happy and healthy, even in the most daunting situations.

Understanding What Pure Plant Extract Is

In a world full of chemical consumption, befriending the pure plant extract is one of the best options you can possibly choose. You may ask yourself, why? During old times, plants were known for their medicinal properties, but there was no method to separate its essence from the plant. So, the consumption of said herbs was the best method to cope with illnesses. As times changed and the knowledge of science became more prevalent, the medicinal herbs were isolated, dried and powdered for better results. In the powder form, it is almost impossible to maintain the homogeneity, and thus, the effectiveness of each serving lessens considerably. This practice is still prevalent in modern times. However, it is known that herb oils contain the most potent essence of the plant. How these extracts are better as compared to the powders is one of the questions that tickle the curious minds. When these herbs are dried using any of the methods, it loses the oils in them. The mere shadow of the potency then remains. Thus, an opportunity is forever lost to use the medicinal herbs to its fullest advantage.

We at NuvoMed strive to bring you the magical blend of ancient formulation and modern enhancement with our pure plant extract products, to promote your health in a simpler manner. The pure extracts contain the medicinal nutrients at a much higher percentage than in any other form. The medicines made using these pure extracts are more potent and effective for its user. The effect of these medicines is quick and emphatic. NuvoMed has bought on the new transition of old herbal medicines by introducing pure plant extracts. In NuvoMed, the extraction process ensures the homogeneity of each serving, and therefore, the efficacy is better than ever before. There are stringent quality metrics in place for the betterment of your health, and any batch that fails to meet the required quality criteria is rejected.

The most effective herbal medicines are made using pure plant extracts. The majority of the natural essence is extracted in the form of oil obtained from flowers, bloom, seeds, leaves, etc. The basic rule of foraging for the essence lies in the depth of knowledge regarding the said herb. Multiple methods like expression, absorption, maceration, and distillation are used to obtain the most potent essence of the plants. The expression essentially crushes the fruit or any part of a plant to separate the solids and the juices. This process is used when oil is plentiful in that particular herb. Absorption takes place when the nutrients need to be extracted from the herbs in another method. Maceration is one of the most famous processes to extract the most potent essence of the plant by breaking it down to obtain the most potent ingredient in its complete nature. A varied array of solvents are used to increase the quality of the pure plant extract. It is not always the liquids that are extracted. Sometimes, when solids are to be extracted, multiple methods requiring a range of scientific instruments are used. However, thanks to the improved scientific community, we have all the required resources at our disposal. Distillation of the extracts to remove the impurities from within is also one of the processes involved in the extraction of pure plant extracts. At Nuvomed, quality checkpoints are prevalent at all stages of extraction as well as completion, all the way to packaging.

High-pressure treatment, chemical synthesis to obtain extracts from natural sources, desiccation, and separation are some other methods of nutrient extraction. The methods vary from plant to plant, one flora specimen at a time. Chromatography, or separation of mixtures, is also prevalent whenever there are any indications of adulteration or any discrepancies to the pure nutrient content.

In today’s hyperactive lifestyle and the chemical dependent world, it is essential to maintain a healthy and holistic approach to maintain the balance of the body and mind. Healthy eating, detoxing, and exercising are some of the healthy lifestyle promoters. NuvoMed is your friend that takes care of your health care needs.
