What is Ashwaganda?
Ashwagandha, also known as Indian Ginseng, is an adaptogenic herb popular in Ayurvedic medicine. For very good reason, Ashwagandha is reaching high levels of popularity at the moment, and we have heard on the grapevine that Mindful Extracts may be extending their range soon!
Ashwaganda is particularly known to reduce levels of stress and help with anxiety, there are studies showing it reduces the levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) in users, as well as balancing thyroid hormones. Ashwagandha has also been proven effective in supporting adrenal function and helping overcome adrenal fatigue.
