Ashwagandha ~ Amazing Ayurvedic Herb
One of my very favorite tea blends is my Adrenal Recovery Tea. One of the herbs that helps to make it such a refreshing, soothing, recovery tea blend is the Ashwagandha root.
Ashwagandha is an Ayurvedic (Indian) herb, with adaptogenic properties . . . meaning that they miraculously adapt to what your body needs; whether rejuvenating or calming.
Similar to Skullcap, Ashwagandha is wonderful for an easy sedative for calming one down, lowering heartrate during stress and even calming hysterics. And because of that, it works so very well in restoring and strengthening your adrenal glands. With these restorative abilities, it helps some with bringing back some life and vibrancy to the elderly and people who suffer from chronic conditions such as chronic fatigue and is a good source of iron for those with anemia.
Not only is Ashwagandha wonderful in my tea blend, but it's good all by itself for those under any sort of stress ~ short or long lasting conditions. If you are working long hours, if you are trying to help your body build immunities and bounce back from an illness, if you are a new mommy or a care-taker and you are constantly under stress from being constantly in demand ~ a soothing mug of Ashwagandha tea will help immensely.
Besides all of that, Ashwagandha is also an inti-inflammatory. So, similar to Turmeric, is helps with blood flow, helps with male fertility, soothes joint pain, rheumatoid arthritis pain, reduces blood pressure; better circulation clears the mind so that you may think clearer, restores vitality during those long work days when you are physically exhausted, and is even considered a cancer preventative.
See why this is such an important herb for not only your adrenals, but for your all-over-feel-good-health?
Just one more of those herbs that make you wonder: How did live without this?
What do you use Ashwagandha for?
