Ashwagandha is an adoptogen. Adaptogens are vital to the body in cases of chronic stress. Weakened, restless and debilitated persons will find the ashwagandha root to be very useful. It also acts as a mild relaxing sedative which promotes both restful and deep sleep. Ashwagandha relaxes blood vessels and stimulates circulation and has been shown to reduce inflammation. This is especially useful to persons with rheumatic and autoimmune conditions. The inflammation caused by lower back pain and sciatica can also be eased. When our bodies are highly stressed they tend to release too much cortisol. This may leave us feeling tired, anxious and burnt out. Aswagandha has the ability to block the release of too much cortisol. High cortisol may also prevent a person from losing weight, as it may increase hunger and cravings. By supplementing on ashwagandha and following a good diet, some have managed to lose weight. It also has inflammatory properties, which may help people that suffer from acne. Surprisingly ashwagandha also has the ability to support joint health, especially knee and hip joints. Bio-Shoden Ashwagandha utilises shoden, which is proven to be one of the world’s most potent bioactive ashwagandha extract.
