Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha natural medicine ingredient

Ashwagandha (also known as Withania or Indian Ginseng) is an adaptogen that has been long used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Adaptogens help your body adapt to stress by bringing balance to & soothing the nervous system. This in turn, helps you deal with the myriad of emotional and physical stressors we are faced with every day.

There is a strong link between a stress and immune system health, with the former negatively impacting the latter. Sleeplessness, tension & fatigue are three common stress symptoms that not only cause, but are also caused by, stress hence perpetuating a vicious cycle. These types of stress affect some immune cells, making it more difficult for the immune system to fight off infections.

Ashwagandha helps to bring about a sense of calm, and works to relax the nervous system to allow a healthy body stress response. This enables your body to cope better with the effects of stress, which leads to less of a negative impact on your immune system.
