How not to let stress get the best of you

Author: Linda Sinden   Date Posted:14 February 2021 

When life gets hectic or you feel under the pump your body secretes fight-or-flight hormones. then everyday life can become a battle. Daily activities become more difficult. Feelings of worry, anxiety, anger or sadness dominate and moments of happiness or joy become fleeting. As stress reaches overload a helping hand is needed!

Ashwagandha (aka Indian ginseng or winter cherry), is the most favoured stand alone Ayurvedic herbal for stressful times. When you combine Ashwagandha with other botanicals it provides an even greater balancing effect. 


Ashwagandha Organic
Take 1-2 tablets before breakfast and evening meals or at bedtime with sips of warm water or warm milk with a little raw sugar.
Ashwagandha has a powerful stress reduction effect as it helps the body adapt to the challenges of stress by helping to:

  • Calm the mind, promote deeper sleep and reduce anxiety and depression without causing drowsiness
  • Balance stress hormones and thyroid hormones
