Close-Up of Ashwagandha Plant.

Ashwagandha or Withania somnifera

Ashwagandha is a superherb found on land, grounded by solid roots; it has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine for stress, anxiety, sleep quality, and hormone health. It 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 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 most challenging moments, making them feel more manageable. 

We put ashwagandha into some of our THRIVE formula to help you do just that. Her strength and target on cortisol, anxiety, sleep, and overall mental clarity are 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 takes a liking to 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 the mood, sleep quality, and overall well-being
  • Helps the sexy hormones feel sexy. 

In its powerful extract form, ashwagandha root can be incredibly beneficial for women - the ones who bear the load, hold all the plates, and try to be everything to everyone. 

We are fans of minimal effective doses, so don’t take too much. Take just the right amount for your needs. You don’t measure ashwagandha levels like you measure vitamin levels; instead, your stress profile indicates whether you would benefit from it. This is why we recommend taking our clinical-grade stress test to see which stress profile your body is experiencing.
