The wonderful Ashwagandha

What properties does Ashwagandha powder have? What is Ashwagandha powder good for?

Ashwagandha has become increasingly popular in the western world in recent years. In order to understand how it affects the human body, it is worth getting to know this miracle plant with a thousand faces.

The Ashwagandha plant (Latin: Withania somnifera) is a small, evergreen shrub covered with velvety leaves and bell-shaped flowers. In addition to their original homeland of India, they can also be found in Pakistan, Sri Lanka and in the drier regions of Africa. The real power of the beautiful looking plant is found in its roots, which after drying are powdered and consumed like this.

Traditional Indian medicine, Ayurveda, has been using it for thousands of years as part of rejuvenation cures (Rasajanas ) because the Indians believe that this medicinal plant bestows longevity, vitality and happiness on its consumers. Many do not know it, but Ashwagandha not only exerts its beneficial effect internally, but also from externally. Treating knees, elbows, ankles with it contributes to joint health.
Of course, most studies examine the health effects of consuming Ashwagandha.

A study published in 2012 proved that Ashwagandha also helps to reduce inflammation in the body caused by stress and may also help maintain cortisol (hydrocortisol) at healthy levels. You may rightly be wondering what cortisol is and why is it important to keep it at healthy levels. A change in the level of hormones produced by the adrenal cortex is perfectly normal to some extent. Adjusted to our daily routine, our cortisol levels rise in the morning and fall in the evening so that the body's natural regenerating, "self-healing" processes can start at night while we sleep. However, persistently high cortisol levels can cause various health problems, even damage to the nervous system.

Ashwagandha can help to successfully fight stress. A study has proven that Ashwagandha - the Indian ginseng can also effectively fight against anxiety-related illnesses. Unfortunately, anxiety and stress can also have an impact on fertility. That's why it's good news that ashwagandha can help balance male and female hormones and improve sperm quality.

A study published in 2015 came to the conclusion that, in addition to protecting the nervous system, ashwagandha can cause weight loss and also have a positive effect on muscle building. It helps us during training and also during the subsequent regeneration.
