- Anti-stress adaptagenic properties.

- Boosts energy level.
In a world where 80% of all disease can be attributed to stress, it is not surprising that we are attracted to the Ayurvedic herb, ashwaganga. Numerous studies have exhibited its anti-stress adaptagenic properties, many of which demonstrated superior adaptagenic properties than that of Ginseng. In one study, ashwaganda demonstrated increased physical endurance and prevented the depletion of Vitamin C and cortisol while under stress; hence, ashwaganda in Sanskrit means the sweat or smell of a horse indicating that one who takes it would have the strength and stamina of a horse (some say 10 horses!). Clinically, it is effective for improving energy and endurance before exercise and surprisingly, when taken before bed, it will ensure a deep and restful sleep.
Traditionally, Ashwaganda was used to treat general debility, arthritis, depression, chronic fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, depressed immunity, sexual debility, infertility, memory loss, breathing difficulties, hormonal imbalances and more. Today, it is becoming an effective choice for combating both exercise and lifestyle stress.
