The Thrive Pill: A Sensible Guide

Thrive: Maca, Ashwagandha, Camu Camu

Maca: Maca is a root vegetable that has been considered nutritious and medicinal for more than 1,300 years. The most common sold and researched variety of it being yellow maca; you are likely to find this superfood in stores as powder.

It is known mostly for its ability to improve athletic performance and endurance. Maca is high in amino acids, vitamins and minerals, and is FULL of adaptogens, which help the body improve its ability to handle physical, mental and environmental changes by supporting its internal balance. It’s basically like that daily meditation you should be practicing everyday, but without having to sit still.

Ashwagandha: This ancient medicinal herb and adaptogen is ideal for stress resistance and resilience. We would even go as far as saying it has superpowers. A daily dose of it, similar to the one present in the Thrive pill generates a subtle vitality that pushes what we like to call “body intelligence”.

Ashwagandha will guide your intuitive eating, controlling hunger and satiation and helping your body return to homeostasis. But its main beauty is in the little ways it alleviates stress and stabilizes your mood in order to extract as much productivity and effectiveness as possible from working hours and workouts. It is basically able to travel through your body’s alarm systems and deal with stress from a place of power instead of complacency.

Camu camu: This small sour berry originating from South America is too acrid to eat on its own. But in powder or pill form as it is found in the Thrive pill, it offers ample antioxidants and vitamins that will help you achieve the best you there is.

Camu camu has a reputation of being one of the best immune system and brain boosters out there, thanks to its abundance in antioxidants that offer anti-inflammatory properties. It contains 50 times the amount of vitamin C found in an orange! It is able to wage war on free radicals that contribute to cognitive decline, and alleviates the symptoms of depression and other mood disorders, calms the body and reduces mood swings.
