Ashwagandha is a traditional herb that has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine. It is commonly used to support a healthy stress response in the body and a calm, yet energized sense of well-being.
Ashwagandha is believed to help with intentional and thoughtful breathing by helping balance stress levels. Some studies show it may increase the amount of oxygen consumption in the body and has been used as a sports performance enhancer.
Ashwagandha is a potent adaptogen. Adaptogens are plants that have been found to increase your body’s resilience to stress and fatigue. In Ashwagandha, these great benefits are made possible through withanolides, naturally-occurring active compounds found within the plant. Typically, supplements will only contain about 2-10 mg of withanolides. However, in our formula, we use 13.5 mg.
Research has shown that taking Ashwagandha could promote a restful sleep without drowsiness the next day. It could support the body’s natural ability to deal with the common symptoms of stress, including anxiousness, stress-related muscle tension, or trouble sleeping.
