Word of the day: ashwagandha. i love saying this word but i love what it does for me more.
ashwagandha is a powerful herb for healing, has been used since ancient times for a wide variety of conditions, and is most well-known for its restorative benefits.
belonging to the same family as the tomato, ashwagandha is a plump shrub with oval leaves and yellow flowers. it bears red fruit about the size of a raisin. the herb is native to the dry regions of india, northern africa, and the middle east, and today is also grown in more mild climates, including the united states.
why use ashwagandha? it helps the body adapt to:
lack of energy
the use of ashwagandha can help alleviate these symptoms and support an energetic and rejuvenating sense of wellbeing.
there are specific herbs with adaptogenic benefits, ashwagandha is one of them. adaptogens are substances (a combination of amino acids, vitamins, and herbs) that modulate your response to stress or a changing environment. adaptogens help the body cope with external stresses such as toxins in the environment and internal stresses such as anxiety and insomnia.
