3 Health Benefits of Ashwagandha
#1 Ashwagandha Helps to reduce your Stress and Anxiety
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older, or 18.1% of the population every year. Anxiety disorders are highly treatable, yet only 36.9% of those suffering receive treatment.
A study from the National Institute of Health showed significant reduction in PSS scores was observed with Ashwagandha as well as Serum cortisol levels were also reduced with Ashwagandha. So it’s safe to say that you should add Ashwagandha to your daily routine to help reduce your Stress and Anxiety.
