Ashwagandha is a plant-based herb, also known as Indian ginseng or winter cherry. It is known to provide aid in managing problems associated with stress, anxiety, and much more.
Stress increases the secretion of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) which increases the cortisol levels (stress hormone) in the body. Ashwagandha reduces the level of cortisol and helps to reduce stress. This can also help with stress-related problems such as anxiety which is related to cortisol levels as well.
Additionally, ashwagandha is an aphrodisiac and could help in stress-induced male infertility by improving the level of testosterone in the body. It might also be able to control blood sugar in diabetic patients (Type 1 and Type 2) by increasing insulin production and improving insulin sensitivity.
