NERVE & ADRENAL TONIC (30g)
One of the most important herbs in Ayurvedic medicine, Ashwagandha, also known as Indian Ginseng, has a double directional action, being used to increase energy and vitality throughout the day, while promoting deep, restful sleep at night (the hallmark of a truly adaptogenic herb as opposed to just a stimulant).
It is known to support a calm, clear mind and memory and is rich in iron contributing to healthy hemoglobin, blood circulation and absorption of nutrients by cells, which in turn increases mental and physical stamina and general wellbeing.
It has a supportive and toning effect on the nervous and reproductive systems, and has demonstrated detoxifying, anti-ageing, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant as well as anti-anxiety and anti-depressant properties (a 2001 study showed effects superior to pharmaceutical anxiolytics and antidepressants). Shown to reduce brain cell degeneration, support healthy adrenal function and balance cortisol (by helping to normalise the entire HPA axis and regulating stress response).
Best taken in some warm milk with a little ginger, it is an excellent substitute for coffee as it rebuilds adrenals rather than depleting them, and provides a sustainable increase in energy.
