Adaptogens are substances that help the body ‘adapt’ to stress and relieve symptoms of anxiety and nervous tension. Ashwagandha is one common adaptogen known to ease stress and anxiety by minimising the effect of the stress hormone cortisol 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, mitigating stress, anxiety, joint pain, and improving memory, immune function and healthy lipid and glucose metabolism. Ashwagandha has been found to have sleep inducing potential and can support those with insomnia and anxiety. 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 supporting the immune system. 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.
