I personally feel that there is an herb or plant that can help with whatever ails you. It’s just our job to find the ones that resonate with our physiology. While everyone is different and will react differently to foods when ingested, there are some adaptogenic herbs that do wonders for most people.
Ashwagandha is one of those special herbs that has been proven to help you cope better with stress, give you more energy and prevent the mental exhaustion that comes with our over stressed and taxed lifestyles.
Here are 4 ways ashwagandha can help you deal on the daily:
Ashwagandha supports the key enzymes that convert our T4 (think storage hormone) into T3 (think active hormone.) This active hormone is responsible for regulating our mood, our metabolism and our digestive system.
Ashwagandha supports the central nervous system to help us relax and give us more sustainable energy.
Ashwagandha can help reduce cortisol levels and help the adrenals by supporting normal HPA Axis function.
Ashwagandha also helps promote a more restful sleep for those that have occasional interrupted sleep patterns.
While we must take steps to bring more balance into our lives holistically by creating more personal downtime, spending more time with family and friends, eating right, exercising and connecting to a higher power; ashwagandha can help support you to get there.
