Ashwagandha might seem like a mouthful to pronounce. And that’s ok because it’s also full of some amazing healthy benefits and a long history as well.
Ashwagandha’s history can be traced back to around 6,000 BC, where it finds mention in the Ayurveda, India’s well-known ancient tradition. In fact, this small flowering shrub that’s native to India actually means “horse sweat” due to its unique smell and ability to increase strength. This herb is also known as the “king of Ayurvedic herbs” because back then ashwagandha was a powerful herb that rejuvenated the system. As more people rediscover the gift of ancient lore, they’re also discovering ashwagandha.
Ashwagandha is a powerful adaptogen––a substance that support’s the body’s ability to accommodate various everyday stressors. They’re thought to stimulate your body’s stress-protection response and help its systems return to a balanced state called “homeostasis.” Since ashwagandha is traditionally used as an adaptogen, it is used for many processes related to stress. And because ashwagandha is also a nootropic, it’s also used to support healthy memory and comes with other cognitive benefits as well.*
