Ashwagandha or Withania Somnifera. If she could introduce herself, what might she say?

Ashwagandha is a superherb found on land, grounded by strong roots; it has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine for stress, anxiety, sleep quality, and hormone health and now has high quality clinical studies to support its effectiveness. Regulating cortisol over time is one of the more well known benefits, as well as lowering the feelings of anxiety and addressing unsustainable sleep habits. Waking up to the sun and falling asleep with the moon, she uses her gentle touch to subtly integrate herself into the hardest moments making them feel more manageable. 

We chose to put Ashwagandha into our product Thrive to help you do just that. Her strength and target on cortisol, anxiety, sleep, and overall mental clarity is unmatched. Being intentional in healing is what we strive for, something Ashwagandha does naturally. 

Evidence based relief and benefits from this super herb:

  • Helps with the monthly flow (or maybe not so monthly anymore?)  - it supports progesterone and estrogen balance so when perimenopause rears its head and throws cycles for a loop, Ashwagandha is right there by your side, ready for the challenge
  • Regulates stress hormones - that C-spot we love, loves Ashwagandha. 
  • Assists with feelings of anxiousness and irritability - it’s an adaptogen, which means it helps the body manage the impacts of stress
  • Bolsters up mood, sleep quality, and overall well-being
  • Helps the sexy hormones, feel sexy. 

Ashwagandha root in its powerful extract form can be incredibly beneficial for women - the ones who bear the load, who are holding all the plates, and are trying to be everything to everyone. 

We are fans of minimal effective doses, which means don’t take too much. Take just the right amount for your needs. You don’t measure Ashwagandha levels the same way you measure a vitamin; your “Goldilocks” amount is based on what matches your stress profile best. This is why we recommend taking our clinical-grade stress test to see which stress profile your body is experiencing.
