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
