Back to school during new COVID-19 reality

Back to school during new COVID-19 reality

As summer is coming to an end, I've started thinking about the new challenges we will face now that the changed reality of COVID-19 is no longer just a plausible possibility. Surely, some of us have already had to adjust to working at home, and for some of us, our children are starting a new year of school, also from home. School is not only a physical place, it is also a means of socializing, learning and where our kids can see other peers. Needless to say, the definition of school today is altered and this may not always be an easy adjustment.

Sitting for hours at the home office instead going to an outside location has pros and cons. While we can save time on logistics, being at home all day long may increase anxiety and lead to difficulties staying focused on the task at work.

What can we do about it?

There is a great amount of studies and research done by scientists who are passionate about exploring the world of botanicals and their effect on our bodies. My fascination with science became my passion, which influenced how I look at herbs and medicinal mushrooms.

Our brain and nervous system depends on many components in order to stay within a homeostasis range. One of them is diet rich in micro-nutrients, which help our nervous system adapt faster to any stressors.

There are three active botanicals that has changed my life, and I want to introduce you to them as “mind saviors”. When it comes to mental challenges, they can support your emotional well-being without harming organs. I've used them for some time now myself, and I have tested it on many occasions before I including them as an ingredient in ODNOVA.

Rhodiola Rhodiola is an effective adaptogen recognized by herbalists for centuries. It is known to work by increasing brain chemicals (norepinephrine, serotonin and dopamine). These neurotransmitters are critical for cognitive thinking, concentration, memory and mood. (1)
Gingko Biloba
Ginkgo Biloba L. is an ancient medicinal plant rich in Phytochemicals like biflavones, terpene trilactones (ginkgolides A, B, C, J, P, and Q and bilobalide), flavonols, glycosides,  proanthocyanidins, and other polyphenols. They effectively contribute to reduced inflammation and are great antioxidant agents (both components are crucial when it comes to reducing stress, enhancing metabolism of brain, and improving cognitive impairment) (2)
Bacopa Monnieri

Another adaptogen with capacity to enhance our brain function and mental state is Bacopa Monnieri. Research shows that it has neuro-pharmacological and cognitive effects and has been widely used in traditional Ayurveda medicine as “a neural tonic to improve intelligence and memory.” (3) It reduces oxidative stress, and has protective effect on
our neuro-cognitive brain functions while keeping us sharp and cognitively coherent.


Let's use the wisdom of Mother Nature and let her help us and our children to ease the emotional and mental adaptation process of a new reality we live in.

In YOUR Health,
