The current millennium has fortunately led to extensive research for the specific benefits of the dominant omega‑3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA). DHA has a critical role for brain and nervous-system genesis and development during pregnancy and early childhood. EPA demands become more pronounced during grade school years; studies demonstrate that EPA supplementation can help with behaviour, attention span, academic performance, and general demeanour. DHA serves more of a structural role in brain composition, whereas EPA exerts a hormonal influence throughout the body, with benefits to mental health in particular.EPA benefits health as a mediator for cellular inflammation. Within the brain, inflammation can interfere with neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin that affect mood in a positive way. A dynamic supply of this critical compound is essential as the body does not produce it. Furthermore, EPA is also vulnerable to oxidative stress, which depletes its concentration within the brain and central nervous system.
Ashwagandha has a therapeutic history spanning millennia of use as an adaptogen in Ayurvedic medicine. The roots of this hardy perennial contain naturally occurring botanical steroids called withanolides. These biologically active compounds are credited for the many health benefits of ashwagandha. Recognized as an adaptogen, ashwagandha has the capacity to energize or calm the body when faced with stressful situations. Its powerful antioxidant action further shields the brain and central nervous system from the debilitating effects of chronic stress. Improved cognitive function and enhanced memory are also among its many benefits. Clinical trials have demonstrated ashwagandha root extract to be effective for improved cardiorespiratory stamina, endurance, and exercise recovery. Even though these trials were performed with athletes, ashwagandha could even help the average person navigate a flight of steps without being caught short of breath.

Himalayan salt, or to taste · ¾–1 tsp. dried dill, or to taste · ½ tsp. ground cumin · ½ tsp. black pepper · ¼ tsp. curry powder · ⅛ tsp. garlic powder · ⅛ tsp. cinnamon Instructions Place the carrots, onion, celery, garlic and green onions in a large baking dish. Drizzle with the olive oil and stir to coat evenly. Bake in a preheated 315 °F (155 °C) oven for 45 minutes. Before the vegetables are done baking, purée the rest of the ingredients with the water in a high-speed blender, using the coconut cream can to measure the water. Then, add the roasted vegetables, and purée again until smooth and creamy. Serve warm directly from the blender, or refrigerate for a chilled soup. This freezes well and can be gently reheated for future quick meals (don’t overheat). Makes 5 cups.
