Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb, which means it balances high and low health issues.
Although it has many uses, the one Dr. Gardner most uses it for is “Adrenal fatigue.” Constant stress raises DHEA and cortisol from the adrenal gland until the gland is overworked. Ashwagandha is able to modify the effects of stress and decrease cortisol levels. It also enhances stamina.
Additionally, Ashwagandha benefits brain health and protects the brain from neurodgeneration. It treats anxiety and depression. It helps stabilize blood sugar and has ani-cancer properties.
