Adaptogens are substances that help the body ‘adapt’ to stress and relieve symptoms of anxiety and nervous tension. They ease stress by interacting with the body’s hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis which is involved in the release of cortisol (a stress hormone) from the adrenal glands.
Ashwagandha root; more commonly known as Indian Ginseng, has been used for over 4000 years to promote overall health and vitality. It is revered for providing multi-functional support to the whole body including mental and physical wellness, mitigate stress, joint pain, and improve memory, immune function and healthy lipid and glucose metabolism. Most notably, Ashwagandha has been shown to promote healthy levels of cortisol and minimise the inflammatory processes that are stimulated in the response to stress.
Being a powerful adaptogen, Ashwagandha improves the body’s defence against disease by improving cell-mediated immunity. It also possesses potent antioxidant properties that help protect against free radical damage. Of all the adaptogenic herbs, ashwagandha is thought to relax the nervous system, therefore promoting a calmer and happier body and mind.
