Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, which means it’s part of a non-toxic family of plants that helps your body resist stressors, including physical, chemical, or psychological. It’s able do this by helping to regulate your adrenal glands, which are responsible for producing hormones, including cortisol, otherwise known as the ‘fight or flight’ hormone. This means ashwagandha can help alleviate sleeplessness, increase energy levels, decrease stress, as well as boost cognitive function.
