Are you looking to bring your workout or athletic performance to the next level? Or maybe your muscles need a little extra support to recover quicker? Ashwagandha may actually be able to help.
Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb widely used in Ayurvedic medicine to help manage stress, promote energy, and boost immune function. Its ability to help our response to mental stress has led researchers to see if it has similar effects on physical stress — and the results look promising.
Studies of ashwagandha have shown benefits in non-athletes and athletes, so you don’t have to currently be an athlete to reap the rewards. If anything, it can be helpful for you to get the ball rolling on a healthy exercise routine!
