I decided to try ashwagandha for a number of reasons: cortisol reduction, blood sugar moderation being the top two. In the almost full month that I've been using it, I've had a noticeable reduction in feelings of stress.
I got this product to help with my energy level. It works GREAT. It also has many other benefits for your body.
This has really helped my anxiety.
After trying a dozen or more other products to curb stress and anxiety, I have finally found one that works in Ashwagandha. I clearly felt the effects on the morning of day 3, and they are still going strong. I'm not worrying, I'm not angry, I'm not nervous.
I think it works. Obviously the best remedy is to change bad habits in your lifestyle, but it seems to have an effect on relieving some stress symptoms.
