A highly potent immune booster, this herb also helps balance sex hormones for both men and women. It supports your stress response and thyroid naturally — thyroid regulates your energy and anxiety levels, so elevating low thyroid can have a cascading positive effect. Various clinical studies have documented that ashwagandha improved stress, anxiety, and sleep quality compared to placebo. As always, Nariveda only uses the most pure, bioavailable varieties for maximum absorption.
We love working with adaptogens — substances that adapt to what your body needs. Ashwagandha is one of those super-ingredients that can be taken to chill your body out, or to energize your body. Although this may seem counterintuitive, it actually makes sense. Your body’s energy levels are healthiest when your stress is low. Depending on what your body needs most, you’ll notice the effects more significantly.
Ashwagandha, an evergreen shrub native to parts of Africa and Asia, has been studied in both traditional ayurvedic practice and modern medicine. Both have concluded that the herb can help regulate anxiety.
The findings of one double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study “suggest that a high-concentration full-spectrum Ashwagandha root extract safely and effectively improves an individual's resistance towards stress and thereby improves self-assessed quality of life,” according to the study itself, published in the Indian Journal of Psychological Medicine.
The herb can increase thyroid levels, so can be highly beneficial for those struggling with hypothyroidism. It is a natural immune booster and can decrease inflammation as well.
