No one likes laying awake at night unable to sleep – especially when you know you have a full day ahead of you. However, we’ve unfortunately all been there at least a handful of times. For those suffering from insomnia, it’s even more frustrating because it is a recurring problem. Fortunately, Ashwagandha can help. It promotes relaxation and clarity – helping you to fall asleep and stay asleep, so that you get the rest you need!

Ashwagandha is an herb that produces bright red berries and is most well-known for the restorative benefits and calming effects it provides. It has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine to protect the immune system, combat stress, improve learning memory and reaction time, reduce brain-cell degeneration, stabilize blood sugar, lower cholesterol, enhance sexual function and increase libido, and also as an anti-inflammatory.

Who Primarily Uses Ashwagandha?

Today, Ashwagandha is most commonly used by people suffering from arthritis, anxiety, insomnia, tumors, tuberculosis, asthma, bronchitis, back aches, fibromyalgia, menstrual problems, and chronic liver disease. Additionally, it is commonly used by cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy for its relaxing, pain-easing, and calming properties.

How Can Ashwagandha Help With Trouble Sleeping?

Ashwagandha can be used as an all-natural approach to achieve a good night’s rest and reduce insomnia. This is because it acts as a depressant on the central nervous system by stimulating feelings of serenity. The interesting thing about Ashwagandha is that instead of increasing the calming and sleep-inducing hormone, melatonin, it decreases the “wake-up” hormone, cortisol. It does this by blocking stress receptors and instead signaling GABA receptors, boosting clarity and a state of relaxation.

Where Can I Get Ashwagandha?

We currently offer Ashwagandha capsules for on-the-go, extract and powder for incorporating it into food and drinks, and tea for when you want to settle down in bed and unwind!
