Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is a plant used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine as an adaptogen to lower stress. It’s commonly used to increase energy and stamina, improve health and well-being, and treat inflammation, stress, cardiovascular disease, and more.
Soothe rheumatoid arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease common in women between 40 and 60 years old. It’s a painful disease that affects many joints at once. Studies show ashwagandha lowers inflammation in the body and reduces the tenderness and swelling in joints.
Exercise can be uncomfortable when you have rheumatoid arthritis, but regular exercise is one of the best ways to improve joint function. Ashwagandha can support your exercise program by potentially easing joint pain.
