La natura è l'anima dell'Ayurveda

Nature is the soul of Ayurveda

For us at CasaGIN the fundamental commitment is to live in harmony with nature . Truly getting in touch with it, having a healthy lifestyle and innovative thinking are the necessary prerequisites for creating a sustainable future for us and our children. This is why today we have decided to delve deeper into a topic closely linked to our philosophy: Ayurvedic medicine and the best ingredients for a healthy life . Ayurveda is one of the oldest medical systems in the world , with the earliest historical evidence dating back 5,000 years. Of Sanskrit origins, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur means life, Veda means science or knowledge). Ayurveda places particular emphasis on Ahar (diet) and Anna (food) and believes that “healthy nutrition” is the basis for nourishing the mind, body and soul.

At the basis of Ayurvedic medicine is the theory according to which health consists of a balance between the three fundamental doshas or bodily bio-elements, called Vata, Pitta and Kapha, formed by the five elements that make up the universe, namely fire, air, water, earth and ether. In short, even according to Ayurveda, harmony with nature is essential for living well . One of its main precepts is that a healthy intestine is the basis of good health, a principle also confirmed by modern science. For this reason , natural ingredients and Ayurvedic herbs are playing an increasingly important role in the dietary style of an ever-larger segment of the population, close to this lifestyle and age-old nutritional practices.


Traditional Ayurvedic practices inspire naturalness in nutraceuticals , i.e. those nutritional principles contained in foods that have beneficial effects on health. Think about the energy our body needs to live, immunity and cognition: Ayurvedic herbs have a variety of health-promoting properties . Modern research has confirmed and expanded many of the traditional Ayurvedic therapies. There are practitioners in the East and West who provide advice on diets and herbal remedies, and traditional Ayurvedic herbs have become extremely popular and used in dietary supplements, teas, and foods.

Ayurveda lists more than 1,500 herbs with potential health benefits . Prominent ones include brahmi, manjistha, amalaki and ariphala, due to their biological properties. But among the most trendy plants used in Ayurvedic medicine stand out ginger, tulsi, turmeric, ashwagandha, Indian incense and amla. Ashwagandha, also known as Indian ginseng, is one of the current trends . Among all the medicinal properties of this plant, the one that ashwagandha best represents is the adaptogenic power of the extracts. This means that ashwagandha is able to support the delicate psychophysical balance with even the slightest change in the surrounding environment. Furthermore, it supports the body against the accumulation of toxins and acts as an invigorator in case of tiredness. Turmeric is another spice originating from South Asia , a relative of ginger, delicious and rich in properties , which has not struggled to fully enter kitchens around the world. It is no coincidence that it is called a superspice and that it is part of the group of health spices: for centuries it has been part of Asian cuisine, not only for its flavor but also for its innumerable benefits: for the brain, for the heart, for our entire organism. Turmeric has antioxidant properties, contributes to the correct functioning of brain activities and can prevent heart disease . Other important nutraceuticals include boswellia or Indian frankincense, for joint health, bacopa, for its cognitive effects, and Indian holy basil, known for its anti-stress properties and cholesterol control .

More and more professionals and manufacturers are using these ingredients for ever-changing applications: diets, recipes, drinks, tablets, supplements and much more. Integrating these elements into our daily lives could be the first step towards a healthier and more natural life . Furthermore, for those wishing to broaden the application of Ayurvedic techniques, respecting the cycles of nature can lead to the spontaneous onset of further well-being. Here are some other tips for living in Ayurvedic style: waking up between six and eight, having lunch around midday, having dinner between eighteen and nineteen and going to bed between nine and twenty-two will allow us to have a lot of energy during the day, a perfect digestion of our lunch, an afternoon with an awake and alert mind and a good night's rest.

Ayurveda, in its multiplicity of visions and interactions, considers and embraces human complexity on different levels. Its primary objective is to maintain or return to an original state of psycho-physical well-being of the human being , according to natural paths, supported by a deep-rooted tradition. It is on the basis of these principles that we have also built the CasaGIN philosophy . Protecting the environment starts from our behaviors which tell a lot about the love we have for ourselves.
