Stress, energy, sleep, mood, stamina and endurance, libido
Ashwagandha is an ancient herb which has been used for centuries in Ayurveda where is known as a rasayana. This tonic action has a specificity for the endocrine system where it is shown to reduce the bodies physiological response to stress, be that physical or emotional stress. To this end it promotes physical and emotional performance and endurance, be that in a marathon or during a tough period when you are working long hours.
This in turn has benefits for the nervous system, as stress impacts significantly on feelings of wellbeing and mood. For this reason, it is one of the best herbs to get you feeling happier and back on top of things after a period of stress.
It is extremely rare to find a herb that at once sedates and calms the mind while also energizing the body but ashwagandha does just that. It is perfect for the wired but tired, the people that are stressed and exhausted but as soon as they lay their head on their pillow, they can’t get to sleep. Ashwagandha is shown to promote a good night’s sleep which in turn supports an increase in energy levels.
Ashwagandha is also a aphrodisiac and libido enhancer for both sexes, in fact studies have shown that it not only increases desire for sex but also sexual pleasure. That’s got to make you feel better!
