HRBLS in BeWell |  The Best Herbs And Supplements To Keep You Healthy This Holiday Season

Reduce stress and protect your mental health

Let’s be honest — the holidays aren’t all sleigh rides and gifts. Sometimes spending so much time with friends and family can be stressful! To manage stress and my mental health, I rely on several tools. I carry packets of adaptogens, functional mushrooms, and HRBLS Nerve Less, a taste, easy option for travel.

IN A WORLD OF VITAMIN IV DRIPS, WORKOUT MIRRORS, AND SMART MATTRESSES, THERE’S SOMETHING HERBALIST AND HOLISTIC HEALTH PRACTITIONER RACHELLE ROBINETT WANTS TO MAKE CLEAR: “THE BASICS CAN BE ENOUGH.”

“EATING MORE PLANTS, USING SIMPLE HERBAL REMEDIES, SEEING MORE DAYLIGHT, DRINKING GOOD WATER ... LIVING A PLANT-BASED LIFE CAN BE SO REWARDING. AND… SO SIMPLE.”

NATURE’S SIMPLE MEDICINES HAVE BEEN THE BACKBONE FOR ROBINETT’S WORK WITH INDIVIDUAL CLIENTS AND AT HER HERBAL CAFÉ SUPERNATURAL FOR YEARS. NOW, SHE’S HOPING TO FURTHER RETURN THESE PLANTS TO THEIR GLORY BY MAKING THEM AS ACCESSIBLE, STRAIGHTFORWARD, AND EFFECTIVE AS POSSIBLE – FOR AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE.

IT’S NO SMALL FEAT, BUT WITH HER NEW LINE OF (ABSOLUTELY STUNNING) HERBAL CHEWS CALLED HRBLS, SHE’S DOING JUST THAT. WE SAT DOWN WITH HER TO TALK ALL THINGS HRBLS, PLANT ALLIES, AND THE IMMENSE VALUE OF SIMPLE MEDICINES.

Supernatural HRBLS in Well+Good | Your Adaptogen Habit is Getting the Gummy Treatment

The go-to way to get a daily dose of stress-reducing adaptogens is usually to put a tablespoon in your smoothie or coffee. But let’s be honest: The earthiness can totally change the taste of your morning beverage—and not in a good way. Well, get ready for a much sweeter means of reaping their benefits: Herbalist and Supernatural founder Rachelle Robinett just launched adaptogenic gummies.

The formula is called Nerve Less because the blend was specifically crafted by Robinett to help reduce anxiety, depression, and stress holistically—consult your doc before starting any new treatment regimen, FYI. Here’s what’s inside: lavender, skullcap, oat straw (AKA avena sativa), and ashwagandha. “Skullcap very specifically targets the nervous system,” Robinett says in a press release. “Some of its active compounds bind to the same receptor sites in our brain as benzodiazepines. In other words, this strong calmer is nature’s Xanax.”

Oatstraw, she explains, is also a nervine, or medicine on a mission to help the body mellow out. Ashwagandha has been shown to lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol and soothe the parasympathetic nervous system. And lavender, of course, is best known for its calming qualities. The gummies are also organic, vegetarian, gluten-free, non-GMO, and have no artificial ingredients or food coloring. They go on sale today.
