So you saw our latest product launch, and now you’re wondering: What exactly does Ashwagandha do? And, more importantly, is there any proof it actually works?
Well Sistas, we don't blame you. The effects are pretty unbelievable.
But, if you're looking for the full lowdown, you’re in the right place. From health benefits to the advised daily dose, our essential guide to ashwagandha is here to provide you with everything you need to know about the ancient herb.
First thing’s first. What actually is ashwagandha?
It’s an evergreen shrub that originates in parts of India, the Middle East and Africa. An ancient ayurvedic, it’s been used for thousands of years to reduce stress and improve cognitive health.
We know what you’re thinking. How is that possible?
Ashwagandha is a powerful adaptogen that helps to reduce the body's levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, better equipping you to cope when the going gets tough.
But, it’s powers don’t just stop at stress busting. As a herbal medicine, there’s scientific research to show that ashwgandha can increase our general sense of wellbeing, along with relieving:
- Difficulty concentrating
- Poor memory
- Trouble sleeping
- Low libido
- Frequent illness or disease
- Low endurance (mentally or physically)
- Joint pain
- Neurological condition
For women, the herb has also been linked to the prevention of menopause-related issues, when we see our bodies experience hormonal imbalances. Working on the endocrine system, ashwagandha helps to regulate hormone secretion, softening the blow of the menopause's many symptoms - think hot flushes, anxiety, depression and sleeping troubles.
Ashwagandha is one of the most clinically-researched herbs in the world, and thankfully, it’s now available in a delicious gummy format.
Using a pure root extraction process, we’ve produced a high-concentration dose (free from filler ingredients) using the full-spectrum root, and retained withanolides - the primary active ingredient in ashwagandha, mainly found in ashwagandha roots. Oh, and did we mention we made sure they're delicious too?
Sold? We thought so. Now how many should you be taking?
Two of our gummies contain 300mg of pure ashwagandha (and only 1g of sugar), so simply pop them in the morning and enjoy your day stress-free.
The world is a stressful place Sistas, but thanks to our Ashwagandha Gummies, you don't have to be.
