Ashwagandha is a root that is used in traditional ayurvedic formulations to balance the nerves of the vata dosha. Vata are said to be flighty, irritable, and a bit hyperactive. Sound like you? Today, whether you know your dosha or not, research shows the stress reducing powers of ashwagandha root powder.
Research shows that Ashwagandha root extract can make us stress resistant. In this high-speed, high-pressure world, a little protection against the manmade elements can help. The findings suggest that this adaptogen can be effectively used by adults who are stressed. (And aren’t we all?)
Stress makes you go fight-or-flight, even though we aren’t going to run away or get into a fight with the stressful situations today. Our bodies are designed to respond in this way. High levels of cortisol shut down the non-essential functions of our body to respond immediately to stress. This stress response suppresses digestion and alters immune function.
Over time, repeated stress response and elevated cortisol levels can have a negative impact on your mood and motivation. We add ashwagandha to our Lean Bean Power Coffee and Hot Sexy Cocoa blends. Ashwagandha may help to improve weight loss efforts, improve mood, increase motivation, and reduce anxiety.
