How to use ashwagandha to normalize cortisol levels?

Ashwagandha is an herb that has been around for a very long time and has minimal side effects.

Potential benefits of ashwagandha:

• It’s an incredible adaptogen (it helps you cope with stress and depression)

• It may help increase exercise performance

• It may help decrease cortisol

• It may help reduce fibroids

• It has anti-inflammatory properties

• It may help improve the immune system

• It supports cognitive function

• It may help lower blood sugar levels

It seems like natural alternatives are always attacked. Recently, there has been some fear around ashwagandha because, like other natural remedies, it’s not FDA-approved. The committees that approve drugs have a lot of conflicts of interest. Many medications that are FDA-approved have a massive number of side effects, but people take them without hesitation.

You may find it beneficial to try ashwagandha and come off of it for a while to see how you feel. Ashwagandha is powerful for stress, but you may not need it after you change your lifestyle and get rid of stress. Natural remedies are great tools but aren’t meant to be taken for the rest of your life.
