    If you lead a busy and stressful life, ashwagandha can bring you many benefits. Studies show that this plant can lower cortisol (the stress hormone) and improve sleep quality. And when you are more resilient to the negative effects of stress and sleep well, it promotes better mood and concentration.

    Where did the name come from

    .

    In the sacred language of India and Hinduism, ashva means 'horse' and gandha means 'fragrance'. The fresh roots of this plant give off a horse-like smell. It was once believed that by consuming ashwagandha, one could develop strength and vitality similar to that of a horse.

    Horse energy kick -what do users think?

    .
    .
    I am not susceptible to the placebo effect. With two children I have noticed that I sleep better, I have stopped waking up in the middle of the night, I have more energy and I find it hard to sit still! I will continue!"

    Let's not sugar-coat this - there are also opinions of "it doesn't work", "it didn't do anything", "the tablet stinks". How will it work for you and your sense of smell? You need to test it on yourself. Remember that it is important to be systematic and use a minimum of 8 weeks to feel the effects.
