Ashwagandha is the perfect supplement for both mind and body. It has been used to reduce stress and anxiety, enhance mental wellbeing, hormone balance, libido and ease pain and inflammation. It has also been used to treat insomnia.
Whilst we are limited in expressing the health benefits of herbs, the ashwagandha plant is renowned for being one of the most powerful. Used traditionally in Ayurvedic medicine, the small evergreen shrub originates from parts of India and the Middle East.
Ashwagandha is often referred to as ‘Indian ginseng’ because of its rejuvenating properties. Botanically though, ginseng and ashwagandha are not connected. It’s been used in India for almost 5,000 years for conditions such as rheumatism, constipation, insomnia, inflamed joints, chronic stress and hormone imbalances. As well as being an ancient herb, it’s also known for being an ‘adaptogen’. As a result, it’s believed to be effective at helping reduce levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. It may help with anxiety and depression too.
