Ashwagandha has been part of the traditional Ayurveda practice for many centuries. This unique plant is famous for its strong adaptogenic properties – when consumed as medicine it helps your body to adapt towards conditions of external or internal stress. Withania somnifera helps you reduce the levels of stress by lowering the production of cortisol and is often prescribed as a treatment for chronically stressed patients.
Studies have shown that ashwagandha intake promotes healthy brain function probably due to its ability to protect brain tissue from free radicals damage. It also supports the cardiovascular system by regulating the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides; research suggests that this exotic plant can also help to regulate blood sugar in healthy norms.
Ashwagandha extract is widely used as an effective energy booster and can increase strength and athletic performance.
