Not all natural supplements are the same, and some herbal remedies become trendy without the science to back them up. Even so, at least 40% of modern pharmaceuticals, including the top 20 medications, are derived from plants used for centuries.(1) One trending traditional herb, ashwagandha, has been making headlines for its range of health benefits. Research-supported benefits of ashwagandha include stress relief, reduced blood glucose levels, muscle gain, relief from sexual dysfunction in women, improvements in testosterone levels in men, cognitive support, and improved blood oxygen levels.(2) While such a range of benefits may seem surprising, Trinn Allen Hatch, Founder, and CEO of Jampha Tibetan Wellness says that modern science is rediscovering the synergistic benefits of whole-plant medicine.(3)
Trinn explains, “When you look at the plant molecules and phytochemical compounds used in traditional medicine, it is as if they are designed to balance and support the human body. This is why many of our most effective modern medicines were derived from plants.”
Ashwagandha may be a powerful tool to balance hormones. Clinical research on ashwagandha shows it can reduce perimenopausal symptoms like hot flashes, sleeplessness, and vaginal dryness.(4) Each year, about one million American women are experiencing menopause,(5) including about 20% of the American workforce.(6) Decisions made during menopause have a significant impact on quality of life and long-term health. While controversy continues around bioidentical hormones, many women are looking for alternative sources of support.
Science-backed evidence is great, but health-conscious hopefuls who read studies tend to buy one herb or supplement at a time, which means they are missing out on thousands of years of practical research. Modern studies show the interaction of medicinal plants can deliver greater benefits than a single plant.(7)
The benefit of traditionally crafted herbal remedies, refined over centuries, is each herb is paired with other complementary plants, delivering a synergistic, multi-plant effect.
“Traditional medicine has invested generations of practical research into how plants interact with each other and the human body. It’s exciting to see how many of these formulas and practices are being supported by modern studies, with more published monthly,” Trinn affirms, “Jampha Tibetan Wellness exists at the intersection of traditional medicine and modern science.”
Rather than selling herbs such as ashwagandha as extracts, Jampha integrates this and other potent traditional herbs into tried and tested formulas. Ashwagandha is in Jampha’s SETI’s (synergy-enhanced terpene infusions) Balance, Relieve, and Calm. It is also in the traditional Tibetan Pills to support healthy blood pressure and circulation, Agar 35.
Trinn concludes, “My introduction to plant medicine was very personal. After injury and surgery where I almost lost my leg, I was on 16 pharmaceuticals and felt like my life was over. Under the supervision of my physician, I was able to use carefully formulated plant remedies to wean myself off of the prescriptions. Plant medicine gave me my life back, and as a result, Jampha is dedicated to delivering the highest quality herbal remedies possible.”
