Ashwagandha for Anxiety!
Ashwagandha is an Adaptogen herb.
It has been used within Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurvedic Medicine for quite some time.
What is an Adaptogen herb?
An adaptogen herb helps the body adapt to stress.
Why I like Ashwagandha…
Ashwagandha is very safe.
Compared with other adaptogens such as Ginkgo or Ginseng, which one should really take a break from using from time to time, Ashwagandha is not like that. Ginseng works somewhat like an upper-Ashwagandha is not like that at all. In fact, some women even take it while nursing, which of course is between the individual and their primary care doctor/ OBGYN doctor.
Ashwagandha works. It is very effective.
I do like others, such as Rhodiola. Though, Ashwagandha seems to work more often with my patients than Rhodiola.
Ashwagandha is safe to use long-term.
Unlike some adaptogen herbs, Ashwagandha does not need to be stopped for a brief period of time, as others like Ginseng do.
