Ashwagandha: All the Science-Backed Benefits

So what is Ashwagandha? 🌿


Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera) is an adaptogenic know for supporting the mind and body in traditional Ayuverdic medicine. 

Although research on the herb is still limited when compared to studies on more traditional supplements, initial findings from clinical studies suggest it provides a wide range of benefits.

Unsurprisingly, a few of these benefits are actually interlinked, as the key benefit of Ashwagandha is it's ability to de-stress the body and thus help to reduce high cortisol levels (that can wreak havoc on the mind AND body).
