Ashwagandha is best known for its ability to reduce stress. It’s classified as an adaptogen, a substance that helps the body cope with stress. It reduces the activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, a system in your body that regulates the stress response. Several studies have shown that ashwagandha supplements may also help relieve anxiety.
It also helps regulate blood pressure, blood sugar level, reduce inflammation, and improve cardiorespiratory endurance.
