Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb popular in Ayurvedic medicine that has shown great results for lowering cortisol and balancing thyroid hormones. Ashwagandha has also been proven effective in supporting adrenal function, helping you overcome adrenal fatigue and chronic stress.
It also may protect the brain from degeneration and can improve symptoms of Alzheimer’s, depression, and anxiety. Many women have reported deeper and more restful sleep after drinking this Ashwagandha Latte.
This is a wonderful drink to enjoy about an hour before bedtime as part of your night time winding down rituals.
