Nightshades No More!

000021512

Hey Folks!

Just wanted to pass on some Ayurvedic wisdom on nightshades after being inspired by a friend’s detox program this morning. Thanks!

Nightshades are part of the Solanaceae family of plants and contain traces of toxic alkaloids that can cause inflammation, retain water in the body and be slightly addictive to your body’s tissues. Click the photo above for an Excellent article outlining nightshades and some of their harmful properties. Ayurveda advises to keep nightshades low or out of your diet and that they can dramatically affect Pitta constitutions. Eat in moderation to enjoy some of the positive properties of nightshades. 

Namaste
