Ashwagandha is one of the most powerful herbs in the 4,000-year-old wellness science known as Ayurveda. The word Ayurveda comes from the Sanskrit root words ‘ayur,’ meaning “life” and ‘veda,’ meaning “to know.” Ayurveda literally means "to know life,” or in the language of today, “the science of life.”
We know it’s a funny word, but Ashwagandha’s root and berry are the key parts used to make herbal medicines and formulas that serve to support a variety of different bodily functions, including increased mental clarity. Part of the family of herbs known as adaptogens, Ashwagandha literally works within the body to help it adapt! Adaptogens are powerful herbs that have been part of Ayurveda from the very beginning and as we said, Ashwagandha is one of the most powerful and most favored of the group.
Stress, fatigue, lack of energy, and difficulty concentrating are common expressions of the body. It’s important to understand that stress is only supposed to exist momentarily, but with the ebbs and flows of our everyday life, it’s no surprise that stress tends to stick around. Stress can also cause a lot of unwanted symptoms that can affect your immune system, skin, sleep, and so much more.
Ashwagandha is an herb that helps support the adrenal glands, which regulate our stress. When stress is always present, the adrenal system is constantly active, which isn’t how it’s meant to work, and it can throw the entire body off balance. This stress can in turn affect energy levels as well as the digestive system. Ashwagandha and other adaptogenic herbs help support the body’s response to ongoing stress.
Ashwagandha also affects men and women differently. As an ancient wellness herb with multiple health benefits, it can reduce stress, can help lift mood, can boost brain function, and Ashwagandha for men has even been suggested to support libido and reproductive system health and energy. It’s no secret that Ashwagandha’s supportive properties are many.
