Health benefits of Ashwagandha extract
Ashwagandha extract helps lower stress levels
Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, which means that it helps the body adapt to stress. Stress and the adrenal gland are closely related and connected. The adrenal gland in our body produces the stress hormone called cortisol. Cortisol is released more quickly than other stress-related hormones by our body. Managing cortisol release and levels to sync with the intensity of a situation can go a long way in helping with stress. Ashwagandha helps the various glands of our body communicate better. When the glands are in complete sync then our body responds better to stress situations instead of over-producing hormones.
