ASHWAGANDHA, STRESS, AND INFLAMMATION
Stress is a condition arising from external physical or mental overload. It can make a person feel embattled,
nervous, anxious, or otherwise less capable of full and normal response to environmental demands. Prolonged
exposure to stress can unbalance the mental and physiological state of a person. Ultimately, cause a plethora
of negative health conditions.
Excessive chronically elevated cortisol levels disrupt sex hormones, reduce cognitive function, impair fat loss,
decrease positive mood, and negatively impact sleep. In fact, if you find yourself wide awake at night it can be
caused by excess cortisol. Excessive cortisol decreases muscle mass and increases your blood sugar level
increasing your risk for diabetes.
Chronically elevated levels of cortisol increase inflammation levels in your body and can contribute to chronic
pain. In fact, chronically high levels of cortisol increase your “C-reactive protein”, an inflammatory biomarker
found in advanced blood work testing. Inflammation is the root cause of a variety of chronic diseases making
controlling C-reactive protein (inflammation) levels in the body imperative for optimal health.
Ashwagandha is known as an apoptogenic herb that helps reduce excess stress hormones. Decreased cortisol
levels will lead to enhanced sex hormones, increased mental clarity, increased body fat loss, increased positive
mood, and optimized sleep.
