Drink Ashwagandha at night to lower stress and improve sleep

Adaptogens are herbs and plants that have been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine, one of the oldest holistic healing systems in the world.

These adaptogens provide therapeutic benefits and help the human body deal with physical and mental stressors.

One of the most therapeutic adaptogenic herbs is ashwagandha. Ashwagandha has positive benefits on the endocrine, cardiopulmonary, and central nervous systems, with powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-stress, and antioxidant effects.
