Ashwagandha can help you through stressful times…
Ashwagandha is an Ayurvedic herb that has been traditionally used to support the body during stressful times, an adrenal and nervous system tonic. It prevents the depletion of vitamin C. vitamin C concentrates in the adrenal gland, the organ responsible for the body’s adaptation to stress. Low levels of vitamin C hamper the adrenal gland’s ability to produce hormones, like cortisol, and thus lead to stress-related illnesses.
Ashwagandha also modulates the immune system, which is often depleted by stress. A good example of this is the cold or flu that someone comes down with immediately after the project has been completed or the last exam has been written. Ashwagandha has been studied for its ability to increase sexual functioning and physical endurance. This may also be due to Ashwagandha’s support of the adrenal gland because testosterone is produced in the adrenals and is responsible for libido and muscle growth.
Ashwagandha can be purchased as raw herb, liquid extract or tincture and encapsulated herb. The root is the part of the plant that is used medicinally.
Pregnant women should not use Ashwagandha because it may increase the risk of miscarriage. It may increase the effect of sedative and anti-anxiety medication.
