When we talk about adaptogens, ashwagandha is one of the most popular. This powerful herb has properties that help your body adapt to stress at a hormonal level, especially for women.
Hormonal imbalance is one of the most common causes of fat storage. When it comes to reducing cortisol levels, ashwagandha is the best natural alternative but, did you know it also helps to reduce inflammation and improves memory and focus? Timely intake of ashwagandha improves attention spans and memory while normalizing body imbalances.
Other studies have proved that ashwagandha helps regularise the menstrual cycle and contributes to heart health. We could say it's a "magical" herb.
I personally recommend ashwagandha if you're trying to lose weight (combined with other adaptogens just like maca, rhodiola, ginseng...) because it improves your sleep which is a MUST when we want to burn more fat. Also, since it reduces anxiety and stress levels, it helps prevent overeating. Have you noticed that the more stressed you are, the more hungry you feel?
I prefer ashwagandha when it's combined with black pepper because it improves absorption and speeds up the process. The Mia Adora Ashwagandha with Organic Black Pepper has become an indispensable supplement for me as a single mom of 4 who lives a very busy and stressful life.
Have you tried aswhagadha? Let me know how it worked for you and if you have any other suggestions to reduce anxiety and stress levels.
