Millions of Americans (millions more around the world) suffer from a medley of bodily ailments which come from the modern day life style. People have to deal with long and stressful work days and nutrient-deficient foods which contain tons of additives and chemicals. As a result, a plethora of health issues arise, most common issues include high blood pressure, thyroid and hormonal imbalance, increased anxiety and stress, emotional problems, low immunity, fatigue, diabetes, cancer, and the list goes on. Rather than go into the severity of these problems, which I’m certain you know of, I will get straight to a solution.
In Ayurvedic medicine, herbs and roots are used to heal ailments in the body. There are hundreds of herbs used. Ashwagandha is considered an adaptogenic herb, which means it is used for its healing abilities that can stabilize physiological functions. The phrase ‘the strength of a horse’ is used commonly due to the herb’s ability to strengthen the immune system after an illness. With a simple Google search, you can find tons of studies done on ashwagandha and the effects it has on the body, which include but are not limited to:
- improved thyroid function
- improved immune system function
- hormone balance
- improved insulin and cortisol levels
- improved brain cell regeneration
- improved stamina and energy levels
- and much more
I would love to hear about your experiences with this herb.
