ANCIENT Solution Beats MODERN Stress
There’s one thing you can count on as the holiday season approaches:
But for some folks, stress and anxiety are year-round struggles.
In fact, nearly 50 percent of the population has reported an increase in their stress levels in the wake of the pandemic.
Regardless of how often you struggle with stress, there’s a natural solution that’s been used for thousands of years to help people successfully manage stress and anxiety.
Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb. That means it helps your body adapt to stressors better.
Ashwagandha and other adaptogens are believed to interact with the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis, which initiates your stress response and helps keep you in balance.
One systematic review found that folks who took ashwagandha have…
- reduced stress,
- lower cortisol levels,
- improved memory and focus, and
- better sleep.
Another review confirmed the potent herb effectively reduces anxiety and stress.
A key reason ashwagandha is so successful at relieving stress is its ability to reduce cortisol levels.
Cortisol is produced by your adrenal glands, and it’s your body’s main stress hormone. It plays a role in everything from energy and sleep to metabolism and blood pressure.
Too MUCH cortisol can lead to more than stress. Plus, it can contribute to weight gain, weakness, fatigue, and the development of diabetes.
Of course, there are plenty of other proven ways to help you manage stress—like exercise and meditation, for example.
But if you’re feeling the effects of “life” catching up to you… especially during this busy holiday season… ashwagandha is a time-honored treatment to add to your list.
