Stress comes in many guises and impacts our health and wellbeing in a multitude of ways. When we’re stressed, our bodies use more of our essential nutrients, meaning that we can become depleted more easily.
Adaptogenic ashwagandha, vitamin C and natural iodine can help to gently unwind the stress response and build resilience to stress.
We use restorative ashwagandha in our blends to soothe overwhelm and specific nutrients to contribute to a balanced mood and mindset. Using these products mindfully, as part of your day, can help reduce the stress hormone cortisol in the short and long term for mindful wellbeing.

I EXPERIENCE BRAIN FOG. WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU RECOMMEND?
Our Inspired vegan Collagyn has been formulated with your mind in mind. With restorative adaptogenic ashwagandha for stress resilience, it is the perfect blend for stressful and busy lifestyles. The vegan range also has key essential vegan nutrients including choline, iodine and vitamin D to support mind, mood, cognitive function and optimal daily wellbeing. The MCT oil is another great product to support brain power. It is a quick and reliable source of energy, providing a fuel source for brain cells.
HOW DOES MCT OIL CONTRIBUTE TO BRAIN HEALTH?
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) are shorter chain fatty acids which are absorbed much more easily and converted into ketones. When lacking in energy, ketones serve as an alternative energy source to maintain normal brain cell metabolism and may be an even more efficient fuel than glucose.
I HAVE TROUBLE FOCUSSING. WHICH PRODUCTS DO YOU RECOMMEND?
MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) are types of saturated fatty acids which, rather than being stored, tend to be quickly absorbed, converted into ketones and utilised in cellular metabolism and energy production. MCT is popular for ketogenic diets and nootropic support since ketones provide a potential fuel source for brain cells, helping to keep you focussed and sharp throughout your day.
The Brave Method encourages the use of MCT oil and hydrolysed collagen peptides (or our vegan Collagyn alternative) during the last few hours of your fast, to help provide a feeling of satiety (fullness) and nourish and sustain you through the last challenging part of your fast. You’ll soon see that with the support of products like our True Collagen, vegan Collagyn, Coffee + Collagen, Cacao + Collagen and True MCT that you don’t need to muster up extreme willpower or enormous levels of self-discipline in order to succeed, which is why the Brave Method has become the go-to support for so many popular styles of fasting.
WHAT IS ASHWAGANDHA?
Also known as Indian ginseng, this botanical is native to North Africa and India. It has been used for over 3000 years as one of the most important herbs in Ayurvedic medicine. The Sanskrit translation of ashwagandha is ‘smell of the horse’ which refers to its ancient belief of supporting energy, endurance and strength.n the West, ashwagandha is known as an adaptogen which helps build resilience to stress. These benefits are thought to be attributed to bioactive compounds naturally present in ashwagandha called withanolides.
