New You Health Tip: Take raw organic Ashwagandha to help your body fight stress.
We live in a fast paced and extremely demanding world, which can be full of stressors. In response we experience spike in cortisol levels, which signals our bodies to use up a huge amount of energy in response. Once we are depleted, our sugar levels rise in order to keep our energy high. Compounded stress can lead to consistent cravings for sugar, which can ultimately lead to unnecessary weight gain. In the battle against stress, raw organic Ashwagandha may help according to a study published in the Indian Journal of Psychological Medicine. According to this study, a daily dose of 600 mg of high-concentration full-spectrum Ashwagandha root over a 60-day period may lead to a 27.9% reduction in cortisol levels.
