Ashwagandha: The Ayurvedic Healing Herb

Ashwagandha: The Ayurvedic Healing Herb - Peak
Native to India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, Ashwagandha has been used for centuries to alleviate depression and stress. Best known as an adaptogen, this ancient root helps your body adapt to stress, whilst ashwagandha’s nootropic qualities improve cognitive function. Evidence has shown that this nootropic is as good as many prescription pharmaceuticals to negate the effects of depression and anxiety disorders. 

By reducing cortisol levels and lowering bloody sugar levels, ashwagandha reduces anxiety levels.  As well as just reducing stress, it has been shown to repair and reverse damage to the brain. Chronic stress and anxiety can damage your neurons and synapses which can be repaired by using ashwagandha. 
As well as this, ashwagandha extract has been shown to improve the effects of Alzheimer's disease, One study found that the use of this nootropic can repair brain damage, and allowed subjects to regain memory and motor function. The subjects of the study showed significant improvement in their memory and motor skills after ingesting ashwagandha, and eventually regained full brain function.
