The Herbtender Calm & Collected Chill Mix with Ashwagandha & Lion’s Mane, £35

Herbtender are proud winners in the Vegan Choice Awards and the Get the Gloss Wellness Awards 2023! Anxiety is so often the enemy of a proactive and purposeful life, and feeling wired or just weird can set the mind racing when you’d really rather chill. Calm & Collected is the perfect companion to help you keep your cool whenever anxiety calls. Ashwagandha is one of the few non-stimulating adaptogens. It improves the body’s resistance to stress and can help to maintain mental balance. Holy Basil is known for its antioxidant properties and was considered in Ayurveda to be a Rasayana – a herb that nourishes good health and promotes vitality. Lion’s Mane has been referred to as ‘Nature’s nutrient for the neurons’ owing to its capacity to stimulate the production of nerve growth factors, which is crucial to the healthy functioning of the nervous system.
