Ashwagandha

 

Ash-what? A mouthful, we know. Luckily this plant has various nicknames we can rely on including our favourite, Winter Cherry.

The Ashwagandha plant is most well known for its adaptogenic benefits in modulating our stress response, as well as reducing cortisol levels (our adrenaline glands release cortisol in response to stress).

The root is rich in withanolides (shown to fight inflammation and tumour growth) alkaloids, choline, fatty acids, and amino acids!

Ashwagandha has a long history in traditional Indian Ayurevdic medicine, with its prescribed use to relieve stress, increase energy levels, and improve concentration dating back 3,000 years.

And that’s why why think this powerful plant might be one of Mother Nature’s most fascinating gifts
