Let’s admit it. We’ve all been looking for that one miracle herb.

The one that has it all.

The herb that we can take once a day that provides multiple benefits at once.

....there is one herb that may provide just that.

Let us introduce you to ashwagandha.

Read on below...

What is Ashwagandha?

Scientifically, Ashwagandha is known as Withania somnifera. However, it's most well known name is ashwagandha.

It's pronounced "ash-wah-gond-ah".

It get's its name from ancient sanskrit and means "smell of the horse".

Ashwagandha received this name because in ancient times it was believed that you would gain the strength and virility of a stallion if you consumed this beneficial herb (1).

Throughout the world it is also known as Indian ginseng, poison gooseberry, and winter cherry.

It belongs to the same family as tomatoes, peppers, and tobacco and is technically a part of the nightshade family.

It is native to India, the Middle East, and Africa. It can now be found growing on farms on most continents thanks in part to its tolerance to drought and high altitudes.

Ashwagandha has been used for centuries in spiritual medicine and Ayurvedic practices.

As you will read below, there are many benefits in taking ashwagandha, which is why it is such a popular supplement (we include it in our award winning sleep aid).

The Benefits of Ashwagandha

One of the key components of ashwagandha is its adaptogenic content.

Adaptogens help to regulate the productions of hormones, specifically cortisol, and how the body responds to them.

Cortisol is what gives our bodies the fight or flight mentality, which is a biological tool we use to overcome a difficult situation; meaning we can either run or stay and fight back.

Because ashwagandha helps regulate chemicals like cortisol, when a challenge presents itself, the body is more likely to remain level and balanced.

This frees up stamina and focus to face our other everyday issues.

By supporting a healthy thyroid and the hormones it produces, ashwagandha may also provide several secondary benefits in the body.

Ashwagandha is often recommended for feelings ofstress, negative mindset, and for helping to balance mood and behavior (2).

It has also been studied for its potential to support a healthy immune system (3), healthy joints, and overall mobility, as well as healthy male reproduction and DNA synthesis (4).

As it aids with stress, ashwagandha may also be ideal for energy production and a healthy metabolism, which may be useful for individuals looking to support a healthy weight or exercise regimen (5).  

As you can see, Ashwagandha is a multi-faceted herb that provides many different benefits.

For those looking to promote a more relaxed mental state, trying ashwagandha might be a good option.

We include it in our Stay Asleep natural sleep aid formula which is designed to help your brain relax before bed.

Why Do People Seek Out Ashwagandha?

It’s true that this day in age we rarely intake the nutrients our body’s need to stay healthy and balanced.

We are the most stressed and overworked generation to date, and itcosts us our health (6).

Stress has huge mental and physical impacts on our bodies; including severe fatigue, weaker immune systems, digestive issues, and weight gain, just to name a few.

A supplement like ashwagandha helps to balance the body and provides support to areas of the body that need it the most.

While ashwagandha has been around for centuries and isn’t quite a cure-all miracle, it does cover many bases as far as daily supplements go.

If you are looking for a natural and healthy way to be the best and healthiest version of yourself, a daily dose of ashwagandha could just be the thing you’ve been looking for!
