Ashwagandha has several properties that make it a worthwhile addition to your herb garden. It is an adaptogen, so it can be helpful for bringing you back to balance in general.

I most love it for its anti-anxiety properties, although it has benefits as a post-workout supplement as well.


There have been over 200 studies on Ashwagandha’s ability to:

  • Improve thyroid function
  • Treat adrenal fatigue
  • Reduce anxiety and depression
  • Combat effects of stress
  • Increase stamina and endurance
  • Prevent and treat cancer
  • Reduce brain cell degeneration
  • Stabilize blood sugar
  • Lower cholesterol
  • Boost immunity
