Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha has had a very significant place in ancient herbal medicine, especially in Indian Ayurveda, but also in ancient Chinese medicine. It is an incredibly healthy medicinal herb. The plant has amazing adaptogenic qualities. It can grow in very difficult conditions, in high and low temperatures, or very high above sea level making it very robust. This is what makes so called “adaptogens” so great, as they are believed to be able to transfer their adaptogenic, survival, qualities onto humans. Ashwagandha can contribute to optimal health and cognitive activity and beneficially affect the heart and cardiovascular system. But it is particularly known for supporting the body’s resistance to stress.  It contributes to emotional balance and general wellbeing and can support the onset of sleep, and we all know how important a good night sleep and a balanced mind is for beauty.
