Ashwagandha, The Indian Herb Set to Replace Tonight's Nightcap
Ashwagandha is one of the most powerful healing herbs in all of Ayurvedic medicine. Also known as Indian ginseng, this adaptogenic plant has been used for thousands of years to relieve stress and rejuvenate the body. In Sanskrit, Ashwagandha translates to “the smell of a horse.” While its name doesn’t provide an entirely literal description of its effects (phew!!), it does affirm the idea that Ashwagandha’s revitalizing properties are potent enough to help you develop the vigorous constitution of a stallion. Take that, stress!
At Glow Bar, we call Ashwagandha “nature’s antidepressant” because it naturally lowers cortisol, the stress hormone, while simultaneously boosting serotonin. Ashwagandha calms your body, mind and soul, especially when you’re feeling low, and strengthens your qi to keep you balanced, animated and, ultimately, happy. That’s why we named our Ashwagandha-enriched elixir “Super Happy” – a bit on the nose, but it makes perfect sense. This super herb is also a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, so it helps bolster your immune system too!
The easiest way to work this mood-boosting powerhouse adaptogen into your supplement routine is to mix our Super Happy blend or pure Ashwagandha into a hot drink. We recommend that you whip either of these up into a rejuvenating nighttime elixir – it’ll give you sweet dreams and have you waking up revitalized and invigorated, ready to power through your (inevitably busy) day.
