Ashwagandha is a plant widely used to prevent and help improve states of mental tiredness and generalized stress. Despite being a plant, only the root part is used for these beneficial purposes. Ashwagandha helps to fight insomnia, reduces mental tiredness, improves energy levels, increases libido and promotes a healthy immune system.
Belongs to the top 10 of the most beneficial roots for humans. It is considered an adaptogenic food that protects the body from the oxidative effect of stress. It also acts as an anti-aging agent and has a positive effect in cases of Parkinson and Alzeimer.
Whoever takes it says it calms and revitalizes at the same time. It also helps to reduce cholesterol and lowers the blood sugar index, being advised for diabetics.
How to Use?
Have a teaspoon mixed in milk (almonds, oats, rice milk, etc.) or water.
Ashwagandha has a taste that some people might call unpleasant but most of all, at a time when so many flavors are anything but natural, it is necessary to understand that we should be more interested in the benefits of the plant than in its taste. Unfortunately many times just because it doesn’t please the palate we stop taking what is good for us and that doesn’t make any sense.
It is important not to mix Ashwagandha with too many fruits in smoothies, soups or desserts. As we know the food cake starts in the mouth and our mouth informs the stomach that specific food is being digested, on that basis the stomach produces and adapts its fluids according to the nutrients it will digest / absorb. Often digestion does not work well because people mix many ingredients and the absorption of those same foods turns out to be partial as well.
You can take either first thing in the morning or at night just before going to sleep.
Not advisable for pregnant women.
