Ashawaganda! Have you heard this buzzword that’s been circulating around the wellness space for some time now? Maybe you’ve seen it in supplement form or maybe it’s been added to one of your smoothies. Well, we love it so much, we added it to our bath powders! If you’re curious as to what exactly it is and why people are paying close attention to it, we’re here to help explain. Read below to learn more about this trendy yet transformative adaptogen.

Ashawaganda is an herb that has been used in traditional Indian medicine (Ayurveda) for thousands of years. It is classified as an adaptogen, meaning it helps the body adapt to stress, improve resilience, and maintain balance.

To get a bit deeper, in Ayurveda, ashwagandha is classified as a Rasayana, an elite group of herbs believed to rejuvenate the body and enhance longevity. Its use dates back over 3,000 years, with applications ranging from boosting energy levels to improving concentration and combatting the effects of aging.

So the modern wellness world caught wind of this incredible herb and started using it in tinctures, extracts, capsules, and teas. We recognized its abilities and decided to formulate our soothing Bath Powders with it.

Here are Ashawaganda’s 5 key health benefits:

  1. Stress and Anxiety Reduction: Ashwagandha is widely recognized for its ability to reduce stress and anxiety. Studies have shown that it can lower cortisol levels, the stress hormone, thereby promoting a sense of calm and well-being.
  2. Improved Cognitive Function: Research suggests that ashwagandha may enhance brain function, memory, and concentration. It is believed to protect nerve cells from damage, support neuroplasticity, and improve overall cognitive performance.
  3. Enhanced Physical Performance: Athletes and fitness enthusiasts often turn to ashwagandha to boost endurance and strength. It is said to improve oxygen utilization and increase muscle mass, making it a popular natural supplement for physical performance enhancement.
  4. Support for Sleep and Relaxation: Traditionally, ashwagandha has been used to promote better sleep. Its calming effects on the nervous system help improve sleep quality, making it beneficial for those struggling with insomnia or restlessness.
  5. Immune System Support: Ashwagandha is also known to bolster the immune system. It can increase the production of white blood cells and enhance the body's defense mechanisms against infections and diseases.
