Stress has been recognized as the major cause of several lifestyle related disorders. A perfect balance of food and sleep gives your body the right amount of energy to process and the right amount of rest to restore and re-energize. There are several herbal formulations too, which can help in stress management. Butterfly Ayurveda’s Ratri Chai is a unique blend of herbs that helps relax the nervous system, and alleviate stress and fatigue, resulting in a calmer physical and mental state. It’s a caffeine-free blend, hence, highly recommended for night-time consumption for a restful sleep.
The Ayurvedic Elements That Make Ratri Chai Potent

However, in some cases, cortisol levels elevate chronically and lead to high blood sugar levels. Ashwagandha is known to regulate that hormone. An effective dosage of the herb can help treat other neurological disorders too. The antioxidants present in Ashwagandha also provide cardiovascular protection to your body.
Brahmi : Brahmi is a therapeutic herb known to treat endless ailments. This bitter-sweet herb is excellent for improving memory and brain functions. The presence of Bacosides, a bio-chemical, in Brahmi is what helps in rebuilding brain tissues and is hence, an extremely effective recommendation for Alzheimer’s patients. The positive effect that this herb has on your hippocampus helps boost memory and concentration. It is also rich in antioxidants that help neutralize the free radicals inside your body. Brahmi is also beneficial for hair and skin as it stimulates cell regeneration. The cooling effect of Brahmi oil is known to be extremely soothing and calming.
