Ashwagandha Root has been used continuously for over 5000 years in the traditional Indian medical system known as Ayurveda and has been gaining popularity in the United States over the past 50 years.
Classified as an Adaptogen, (a natural substance that helps the body’s ability to resist the damaging effects of stress) this potent healing herb has been recognized by modern science for its ability as a natural stress reliever and help restore natural balance to the body, making this herb a perfect companion for modern life.

How it Works: Ashwagandha contains the bioactive plant compounds of alkaloids and lactones (known as withanolides) that can help regulate levels of the stress hormone cortisol to reduce the development of chronic stress and anxiety. (5) (4)
Ashwagandha and its withanolides have been researched in a number of studies that suggest that Ashwagandha can help calm the mind, reduce inflammation and help bolster the immune system. (5) (8) (6)
