The Perfect Marriage

The ancient texts of Ayurveda were originally written by the “rishis”, or sages, almost 2500 years ago, and were incorporated into the Vedas, the bedrock of Hindu culture and philosophy. Over the centuries, Indian healers documented the benefits of nature’s bounty of foods and herbs, and Ayurveda developed into a comprehensive system of health and healing. Optimal physical well-being was viewed as an essential component on the path to spiritual awakening and the realization of one’s divine potential.

If one way is better than another, you may be sure it is nature’s way.” – Aristotle

Over the millennia, Ayurvedic healers did not have the benefit of science and technology to establish medical knowledge. They utilized trial and error, observation and documentation, to catalog and formulate their system. Today, we have the combined benefit of both science and Ayurveda. We have a time-honored tradition, founded on millions of case observations, and we have the benefit of modern scientific disciplines and methods to verify utility, safety, and efficacy.

And the most beautiful thing about this marriage; both partners agree.

The Role of Plant-Based Medicines in the Modern World

Traditional Medicine, also known as indigenous or folk medicine, has been practiced throughout the world for thousands of years. According to the World Health Organization, traditional medicine is defined as “the sum total of the knowledge, skills, and practices based on the theories, beliefs, and experiences indigenous to different cultures, whether explicable or not, used in the maintenance of health as well as in the prevention, diagnosis, improvement or treatment of physical and mental illness”. WHO goes on to define Herbal Medicine as a “system that includes herbs, herbal preparations, herbal materials, and finished herbal products that contain plant material as an active ingredient”.

Herbal medicines have been long-established and widely acknowledged for their safety and efficacy by cultures and national health authorities throughout the world. According to WHO, 80% of people worldwide rely on herbal medicines for some part of their primary health care needs. Today, they are commanding increased attention due to the application of scientific inquiry, which has validated a wealth of neutraceutical potential.

While there are many traditional systems in the world, the three dominant systems are “Traditional Chinese Medicine”, the “Unani Medicine” of Arab cultures, and “Ayurveda”, originating out of India.

In the U.S., Europe, and other developed societies, the terms “complementary medicine” and “alternative medicine” are used interchangeably with “traditional medicine”, when describing systems that not a part of the dominant, allopathic health care system. But in Asia, these traditional systems are the dominant health care systems and it is the allopathic medicines; pharmaceuticals that play the role of “complementary medicine”.


Ashwagandha: The Adaptogen

Ashwagandha (withania somnifera), also known as Indian ginseng, or winter cherry, is a small, perennial evergreen herb that grows about 2’ tall.

Both its roots and leaves are valued for their nutritional and healing properties. Ashwagandha literally translated from Sanskrit means, “the smell of a horse”. Early practitioners likened its smell to that of a horse, but also observed that its use provided one with the stamina of a horse.

Ashwagandha is an ‘adaptogen’, meaning that its use facilitates one’s ability to adapt to every-day stresses and the ups and downs of human life. In the West, we might refer to ashwagandha as a ‘tonic’, meaning that it affords a broad spectrum of health and nutritional benefits. In more technical terms, we would say that an adaptogen promotes the stabilization of physiological processes and the homeostasis of physiological systems.

Ashwagandha is one of the most scientifically studied herbs. In the National Institutes of Health database, there are over 2000 scientific articles that reference Ashwagandha. Of those 2000, over 400 focus directly on the medicinal properties and applications of ashwagandha and its phytochemical components. What is perhaps most encouraging is that the largest share of these articles involves various types of cancer research.

Ashwagandha contains a broad scope of active phytochemicals, mostly found in its roots, which include:

Alkaloids, including withanine, withananine, and beta-sisterol
Steroidal lactones, including withanolides
Phytosterols, including stigmasterol and beta-sitosterol
Flavonoids, including saponins, sitoindosides, and choline
Coumarins, including scopoletin and aesculetin
Essential oils, including ipuranol and withaniol

Studies supporting the benefits of Ashwagandha

Active phytochemicals
Reduces cortisol

In one important study, ashwagandha was shown to reduce cortisol levels, the body’s ‘stress hormone’.

Cortisol is secreted by the adrenal glands when the body experiences stress. Cortisol is important for maintaining proper health, but elevated levels of cortisol have been linked to various health problems, including:

  • Imbalances in other hormonal secretions, including insulin (blood sugar)
  • Interference with brain neurotransmitters, related to insomnia, anxiety, and moodiness
  • Increases in blood pressure
  • Increases in cholesterol levels
  • Interference with immune function
Lowers anxiety

Another study found that ashwagandha root extract lowered anxiety levels.

The test group showed significantly lower levels of anxiety, including:

  • Lower levels of cortisol
  • Scored lower on stress and anxiety tests
  • Reported feeling more relaxed and calm
  • Showed improved sleep
  • Reported better over-all well-being and quality of life
  • Reported better interaction with others
  • Reported increased productivity
Increased muscle strength and mass

Other studies showed increased muscle strength and mass.

Turmeric Curcumin: Nature’s Antidote

Turmeric is one of India’s most common herbs, a component of curry, a mainstay of the Indian diet.

Its name is derived from the Latin term, terra merita, which means ‘meritorious earth’, and refers to the earthy yellowish color of the ground powder. Today, India cultivates nearly a million tons of turmeric annually.

The use of turmeric dates back at least 4000 years and was given some religious significance by ancient peoples who dubbed it, ‘the herb of the sun’. Turmeric had reached China by 700 C.E., and was chronicled in 1280 by the famous merchant/traveler, Marco Polo, who marveled at it saffron-like qualities.

Turmeric was recognized for its therapeutic characteristics long ago and has been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine as:

Joint pain and stiffness including arthritis
Cough, sore throat, and fever
Gastrointestinal complaints
Menstrual complaints

Modern researchers have now been able to identify a number of phytoactive ‘curcuminoids’.

Curcumin has been identified as the primary active phytochemical in turmeric, and is present in the raw spice powder at an approximate 3% concentration.  Most turmeric-based supplements use the extracted, pure curcumin powder in a standardized 95% concentration.

Nariveda utilizes a highly potent, patented compound of curcuminoids, known as Curcumin C3 Complex®, which includes:

BDMC (Bisdemethoxycurcumin)
DMC (Demethoxycurcumin)

Curcumin C3 Complex is formulated to provide maximum antioxidant and bioprotectant activity and is the most extensively researched type of curcumin available today.


In 2013, the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture certified if as “Generally Recognized as Safe”, making it the world’s most trusted brand of curcumin.

Curcumin’s bright orange appearance is evidence of its rich concentration of flavonoids. Flavonoids are a large and diverse group of phytonutrients, found in fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs, and are responsible for their coloration. Researchers who study human diets over long time frames, have long known that diets that are rich in fresh fruits and vegetables correlate with longevity, and lower instances of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, neurogenerative disease, and cancer. Studies seem to suggest that the antioxidant qualities of flavonoids play a major role in these remarkable outcomes.

The world’s most researched plant-derived medicine.

Curcumin is the world’s most researched plant-derived medicine. The National Institutes of Health database includes over 20,000 references to curcumin. The many effective applications of this remarkable medicine are well documented. One study took a broad view of curcumin, reporting on the variety of its therapeutic applications.

The study concluded by saying:

“There is an abundance of preclinical and clinical evidence indicating that curcumin has potential as a therapy for a wide variety of chronic diseases including cancer, cardiovascular, inflammatory, metabolic, neurological and skin diseases, and various infectious diseases. Unlike most pharmaceutical drugs, curcumin modulates multiple targets that affect different diseases. Safety, efficacy and affordability are some of the added advantages exhibited by this compound. There are also increasing lines of evidence suggesting it has a potent chemosensitizing effect in various cancers.”

study on it's anti-inflammatory characteristics

Another study focused in on curcumin’s anti-inflammatory characteristics.
It concluded by saying:

“Curcumin has been demonstrated to have therapeutic potential for various chronic inflammatory diseases, essentially due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties against a vast array of molecular targets…A large body of investigation has provided important insights into the anti-inflammation effects of curcumin which will constitute the basis for the further design and clinical application of extraordinarily potent drugs with potential therapeutic significance.”

antibiotic, anti-viral, and anti-fungal

One study explored the combined activity of curcumin as an antibiotic, anti-viral, and anti-fungal.

One study explored the combined activity of curcumin as an antibiotic, anti-viral, and anti-fungal.

The study concluded with:

“All previous investigations have shown the extensive antimicrobial activity of curcumin…The extensive antiviral effects of curcumin against different viral pathogens nominate this compound as an antiviral drug candidate to develop new antivirals from natural resources against sensitive viruses especially by developing different curcumin derivatives. Regarding the studies on antifungal activities of curcumin the most significant effect was found against Candida species.”

prevent & treat cognitive decline

Numerous studies, like this one, this one and this one have focused on curcumin’s ability to prevent and treat neurodegenerative disorders and cognitive decline.

One study concluded:

“Recent curcumin research revealed that curcumin boosts cognitive functions in humans…In addition, several groups reported that curcumin ameliorates cognitive decline and improves synaptic functions in mouse models of Alzheimer’s Disease.”

potential as an anti-cancer medicine

A large body of research involves curcumin’s potential as an anti-cancer medicine.

One broad study concluded:

“A plethora of in vitro and in vivo research together with clinical trials conducted over the past few decades substantiate the potential of curcumin as an anti-cancer agent. At the molecular level, curcumin targets numerous pathways, highlighting its ability to inhibit carcinogenesis at multiple levels and thus, potentially circumventing the development of resistance.”


Black Pepper

Curcumin has one weakness which is its bioavailability. It is difficult to assimilate. It also has a short time window of activity, once assimilated.

Nariveda has added a patented black pepper extract, known as BioPerine® to its Ashwagandha/Curcumin combination because it is well-documented that black pepper extract increases curcumin’s absorption significantly. BioPerine also speeds metabolism, increases levels of dopamine and serotonin, and accelerates immune system responses.

For maximum benefit, the ideal way to take the product is three times daily, in the morning, afternoon, and evening.
