How does Ashwagandha helps in stress relief?

Question: I want to know how does Ashwagandha helps in stress relief.
  • Is it harmful to consume? 
  • Are there any side effects of it? 
  • If not what should be the ideal quantity to consume per day?


Answer:  “Ashwa (Horse) Gandha (Smell) “ is an adaptogenic herb( “Adaptogen” is compounds that prevent physical and chemical effects of stress) that has shown incredible results for lowering cortisol ( Your Body’s Main Stress Hormone that controls Mood, Motivation and Fear) and balancing thyroid hormones. The Nagori Ashwagandha is the supreme among all Ashwagandha varieties. The leaves are bitter and are recommended in fever, painful swellings and is also used to treat anxiety and stress disorders. Mainly the roots are used in supplements though.

With relation to stress:
Ashwagandha appears to significantly reduce the symptoms of stress and its comorbidities (fatigue, temporary cognitive impairment, etc.) as well as biomarkers such as cortisol. The decrease in cortisol noted in humans has reached 14.5-27.9% in otherwise healthy but stressed humans. An increase in motivation has been noted to occur in a study where anxiety was reduced; it is not sure if this is a the effect of supplementation or due to reducing anxiety

Its Possibly safe when taken in safe dosages. The appropriate dose of ashwagandha depends on several factors such as the user’s age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is NO enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for ashwagandha. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Even if its coming from nature, its still a chemical. For now go with the Nutrition Label . Most benefits are linked to dosages of 200 MG - 1 Gram per day and You can also combine Royal Jelly (Royal jelly is a gelatinous substance produced by honey bees to feed the queen bees and their young) and you can refer to a doctor for therapeutic dosages . Do not construct this as a medical advise.
