The clue is in the name – Withania somnifera, referring to it’s “somniferous” sleep promoting effect.
There are interesting reasons as to why it aids sleep which are also highly beneficial during the day – it reduces stress hormones! The same hormones that can keep us awake or wake us up at night, are the same hormones that can make us tired and eventually wired and worn out during the day. This why Ashwaganda falls under the definitition of adaptogen. It mitigates the effects of stress, be that environmental, emotional or physical. It is also a great tonic for the thyroid.
So if you are tired but wired, worn out and getting non-restorative sleep, this is the herb for you.
