What is Ashwagandha
Native to India, Ashwagandha is a tremendous superfood that supports and improves healthy bodies. This evergreen shrub has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine for its amazing herbal benefits for physical, mental and emotional well being
Due to its high antioxidant and phyto-nutrient density, Ashwagandha is known as an adaptogen. This means it works to improve the body’s overall performance and level of operation so the body is less affected by everyday threats that would otherwise burden the system. Ashwagandha supports superior cellular performance, which allows the entire body to operate more efficiently. And the results are astounding.
Our bodies are designed to be very efficient. Over time and due to genetic and environmental consequences, bodies become weak, beginning at the most basic cellular level. By strengthening cells with incredible nutrients like those found in Ashwagandha, the immune system is bolstered to help keep bodies healthy and vibrant. This also reduces internal swelling that can lead to illness and disease. Moreover, strong cells produce more energy to take on life’s daily tasks.
Additionally, Ashwagandha has fantastic benefits for the heart and brain, and is known to be a natural mood elevator. For the heart, Ashwagandha helps regulate normal cardiovascular system functions including blood pressure, balancing cholesterol and keeping blood healthy. Brain benefits of Ashwagandha stem from its ability to reduce swelling and energize blood for better mental focus, less risk of degenerative diseases and improved neuro-protection. As a mood enhancer, Ashwagandha has the incredible ability to calm the body and reduce stress and anxiety that can take a major toll. This in turn improves blood pressure, mental clarity, fatigue, depression and other related issues.
