Ashwagandha has been used for over 2,000 years as a "vitalizer". It's adaptogenic properties are rejuvenating, strengthening, calming, and balancing. Ashwagandha is a nutritive herb, meaning its rich in nutrients and is excellent for rebuilding nutrient stores within the body, so it can access them for energy when needed.
What is An Adaptogen?
The key to this word is ADAPT: which means to change your behaviour so that you can adjust accordingly to a specific situation. Adaptogens help increase resilience and help us to adapt to the stress in our lives by supporting both nervous system and hormone balance. Essentially, if we're producing too much stress hormones (cortisol), adaptogens will lower the production so we don't feel so angry, agitated, panicked or worried.
They strengthen our adrenal glands and reduce adrenal surges (or adrenaline spikes) that ultimately leave the body depleted. They modulate the HPA axis and help us recover from that 'wired but tired' feeling. Use adaptogens to help regulate energy levels, improve sleep, improve mood, and encourage a more relaxed state of being.

About The Herb
Ashwagandha's adaptogenic properties help with a healthy stress response by lowering cortisol if too much is being produced. It balances the adrenal glands and helps restore adrenal fatigue. It's really good for relieving nervous exhaustion in people who are very energetically sensitive to their surroundings and feel wired but tired.
In Ayurvedic medicine, it is said that sleep issues are linked to the body lacking energy reserves, rather than having too much energy. The Ayurvedic strategy for sleep is not to sedate an already exhausted body, but to rejuvenate it and rebuild its reserves so that the body has the energy it needs to put itself to sleep.
