LONGEVITY OF THE MIND & BODY:
Not only does Ashwagandha transform your inner landscape to be one of peace and prosperity but it can positively influence your outward appearance too.
One of the lesser emphasized benefits of Ashwagandha is its ability to promote youthfulness and glowing skin. How? The answer is tri-fold.
First, because of it’s calming and adaptogenic ability, LESS stress will leave MORE time and resources for your body to thrive instead of getting swallowed up in stress-responses and the overproduction of cortisol which tends to exacerbate skin problems.
Second, Ashwagandha has a unique ability to promote hormone balance. In fact, it’s one of the few herbs that directly impacts the thyroid, as well.
Third, and last but not least it’s loaded with antioxidants, essential to fighting free-radical damage that compromises skin from environmental and internal imbalances.

But it’s medicine has no gender bias. In fact, once that baby is made Ashwagandha wants to transform from a seductress to a loving caretaker. In India and parts of Africa, this herb has been used as a uterine tonic and to encourage healthy pregnancy
