Ashwagandha – Studies Show Helps Anxiety

There have been about 200 scientific studies supporting the health benefits of this amazing herb called Ashwagandha. For instance, it reduces cellular sensitivity to stress and protects the brain cells against the deleterious effects of our modern lifestyles.

Ashwagandha depresses the central nervous system which causes relaxation. This comes from the phytochemicals it contains, known as withanolides. They act as precursors to the hormones that regulate the body’s responses to stress. This is particularly helpful for anxiety disorders. Anxiety is related to high-stress levels, adrenal exhaustion, and fatigue.

In one published study, the researchers noted that ashwagandha helped promote the growth of both normal and damaged nerve cells, suggesting that the herb may boost healthy brain cell function as well as benefit diseased nerve cells. These findings provide tremendous hope that ashwagandha extracts may one day help heal neurodegenerative diseases in humans, freeing patients from the mental prisons of dementia and Alzheimer’s.

It has also proved to be helpful in treating agoraphobia and stress-related infertility.

Studies show that it is as effective as prescribed drugs without the harmful side effects. Anti-anxiety drugs often cause side effects such as increased appetite, drowsiness, and loss of sexual desire.

Pregnant women should not take this supplement.
