Ashwagandha Herbal Complex
Ashwagandha also relaxes the central nervous system in animals. Laboratory studies found that ashwagandha kills some cancer cells and enhances some immune cells.” On top of killing cancer cells, ashwagandha has been found to increase red blood cell count, which helps reduce fatigue.
When you’re chronically stressed, it affects more than just your mind. Studies have found that your body is also physically impacted by stress, which usually means getting sick. While you can’t prevent all stress — in fact, some stress can be beneficial to your body — it’s important to reduce it so your hormones aren’t constantly being overworked. This supplement has a mix of ashwagandha and other potent herbs that may help maintain and promote healthy cortisol levels. Magnesium is also in the ingredient list, adding an even more calming effect.
