You Oughtta Know: Ayurvedic Herbs and Spices

Ayurveda is a traditional Hindu system of medicine followed by around 240,000 American adults. It is based on a mind, body, and spirit balance with herbal practices to help preserve health and wellness. Ayurvedic herbs and spices with science-supported benefits play major roles in this holistic approach to health. Read on for some of the most popular ingredients to include in your next private label Ayurvedic supplement.


Ashwagandha, also known as Withania somnifera, is an adaptogen, which means it helps the body respond to stress and regulate bodily processes. Your customers can enjoy its advantages, from balanced stress hormones and increased vitality, to improved adrenal fatigue and boosted energy. Research has shown the connection between the consumption of ashwagandha and improved sleep in people who experience stress and anxiety disorders. Moreover, this rejuvenating herb may enhance muscle growth, male fertility, memory, and lower blood sugar levels.


Cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum), or the “queen of spices,” has been around for centuries. Powder form of cardamom has been demonstrated to help lower blood pressure in people with elevated levels. Tests indicate cardamom’s protection against stomach ulcers, with the potential to reduce the size of gastric ulcers by at least 50%, and possibly eliminate them completely.


Customers may use it in their savory eggplant bharta recipe, but do they know why it’s the spice of life? Turmeric, or its active ingredient curcumin, houses powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Studies show that curcumin might actually be just as, or even more effective, than some anti-inflammatory drugs—that is, without all the side effects.

Wait wait, there’s more. Compounds in turmeric might work to improve cognitive function by raising brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) levels. Low levels of the protein have been associated with conditions such as depression and Alzheimer’s. No wonder it’s in high demand.

Want to prove how YOUR turmeric supplement beats the rest? In a market that could surpass $100 million in 2025, allow the private label manufacturing partner you trust to create a high-quality product you can call your own.


Hailed for aiding digestion, cumin (Cuminum cyminum) may help release bile from the liver, accelerating digestion and easing that of fats. Cumin is a special spice that could be what your customers didn’t know they needed. Research links cumin to the reduction of symptoms related to irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which means that with the help of your cumin product, customers could say goodbye to the bloating and abdominal pain that too often holds them back.


Certified Ayurvedic health counselor Sahara Rose reports to Well and Good that “brahmi is the ultimate brain tonic. Its leaves even look like a brain.” The herb aids in balancing the left and right hemispheres of the brain so individuals can function with both the analytical (left hemisphere) and intuitive (right hemisphere) side. It is believed to lower inflammation, reduce symptoms of ADHD, and help the body deal with stress.

Usually taken in powder form, brahmi is so popular that it is in most Ayurvedic brain-boosting supplements.


Gotu kola (Centella asiatica), the “herb of longevity.” Made from a tasteless, odorless plant with fan-shaped green leaves that grows in and around water, gotu kola is often used as an Ayurvedic remedy to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. It may also help heal wounds faster and mitigate symptoms of psoriasis and eczema. Preliminary research points to the herb’s ability to relieve joint pain as well.


Native to Europe and Asia, licorice root, from the Glycyrrhiza glabra plant, licorice root has earned its spot on our list for its relevancy. It is believed to reduce inflammation and fight viruses and bacteria. Soothing sore throats and promoting oral health by shielding against dental cavities, licorice root is a multi-action spice. This impressive Ayurvedic spice may aid in preventing and managing nausea, bloating, belching, stomach ulcers and heartburn. Like gotu kola, licorice root may reduce symptoms of skin rashes—that means alleviation of redness, swelling and/or itching. Sounds like the right combination of benefits to me.
