In recent times, not just the health community but humanity, in general, has become aware of just how crucial hormones are for us.
Or, more specifically, maintaining a hormonal balance in other for our body to function properly.
Hormones have such a big role in our lives, from how we age over the years to our everyday mood. Ever since puberty, they are the leading cause of how we look and feel.
Take the hormone cortisol, so example, which is releasing every time we are under some kind of stress.
When only makes matters worse as it is a cause of inflammation and oxidative stress, which is never good news.
Unfortunately, there are many outside and inside causes for stress to appear. Coming into contact with cleaning products or processed foods, or even the turmoil that daily life offers us.
All of these and more trigger the release of cortisol, which in turn leads to adrenal fatigue (hormonal imbalance).
But it can also lead to more weight retention, heart disease, and even diabetes.
And yes, there are products out there which claim to control this stress hormone, but most if not all of them are filled with other chemicals which cause different problems and side effects.
Luckily, there is a natural remedy out there which can not only balance out your hormones, but is also chemical-free.
We are referring to the Ashwagandha Root (that’s a mouthful, we know). It also goes by the name Indian Ginseng, and has been used both in India and Africa for centuries.
It is a herbal super-drug which is the closest thing to the fountain of youth as one can imagine.
This is because, other than majorly boosting one’s immunity, it also slows the aging process and makes one feel more energetic and youthful.
Why Is It So Powerful?
It is thanks to the fact that it is an Adaptogen, which as its name suggests, can adapt to the needs of the body, either lowering or increasing the hormonal production.
Whether you are feeling stressed out, or have either hypothyroid or hyperthyroid problems, the Ashwagandha Root can help greatly.
But it can also be used for treating a number of problems, such as:
- Low energy
- Weak immunity
- Anxiety or depression
- Stamina and vitality
But That’s Not All…
It has great potential for its future use as a natural treatment against cancer.
It’s antioxidative, and immune-boosting properties can be of great assistance in destroying cancerous cells and thus preventing cancer from ever occurring.
While many more studies need to be conducted, cancer patients who have taken this herbal drug claim to feel more energetic and not so sickly after chemotherapy.
And while we’re on the subject of chemo, the Ashwagandha Root would definitely be a better alternative since it won’t be so chemically ridden.
Instead, it will treat the cancer in patients naturally and without side effects. Let us hope that progress will be made soon.
In the meantime, taking this herbal drug will certainly do wonders for your system.
You can take it in capsule form or the traditional way – 5 to 10 mg to a cup of warm milk, or a smoothie for the modern day adaptation.
