Ashwagandha

  1. [Breakthrough] Ancient herb STOPS aging in its tracks!

    I don’t mind getting older… but I sure hate FEELING old.  

    And I bet you’re in the same boat.  

    But that aching back… those creaky knees… and those “senior moments” where you can’t remember names can sure make you feel your age.  

    Talk to most doctors, and they’ll just tell you to deal with it… that these problems are all part of getting older.  

    But I’m not like most doctors.  

    And today I’m going to introduce you to a “super herb” that ATTACKS even the worst symptoms of aging… in fact, it practically STOPS the aging process in its tracks.  

    The Indian aging miracle 

    Ashwagandha has been used for over 3,000 years by Indian healers to relieve stress, increase energy levels, and improve concentration. 

    It’s an anti-aging superstar – and the science backing it is impressive... 

    Withaferin A, one of the major compounds in ashwagandha, has anti-aging effects.  

    In studies, Withaferin A demonstrated a 39 percent reduction of age-related protein damage in the spinal cord. It also led to a 60 percent reduction in age-related protein damage in motor neuron cells 

    That’s not all – not even close:   

    • Compounds found in Ashwagandha improve cellular-signaling pathways associated with protecting cells from chemical and environmental stress, protein damage, inflammation, DNA damage and repair.
    • Ashwagandha can mimic the bio-chemical effect of calorie restriction (which has been shown to be life-extending).  
    • It has been used and backed up by scientific studies to increase stamina during exercise and to boost recovery. 
    • Ashwagandha works with your body to naturally boost testosterone levels. 
    • It improves brain cognition in both older and younger populations. And it boosts the natural production of brain-derived neurotropic factors (BDNFs) – molecules that protect brain cells. 
    • Ashwagandha reduces blood sugar levels as well as supporting healthy leptin (the appetite hormone) levels.  
    • It also has anticancer propertiesreduces stress (and cortisol levels)improves muscle mass, and can help alleviate depression 

    It’s hard to imagine that you can get all of these benefits from one herb – but ashwagandha may be one of the most versatile natural remedies around.  

    And the good news is that it’s becoming widely available. You can pick it up online or at most local vitamin shops.

  2. Ashwagandha can help you lose weight

    Ancient herb helps you conquer stress eating and shed pounds

    You know stress isn't good for your health -- and that's especially true when it comes to your waistline.

    You know how it is after a particularly nerve-wracking day... when nothing can calm your nerves better than your favorite finger food or the newest flavor of Häagen-Dazs.

    And next thing you know, you've eaten the whole thing.

    If you're a stress eater, you need to get the problem under control if you ever hope to lose weight and keep the pounds off.

    Fortunately, it looks like there's a simple herbal remedy that can help in a big way.

    I'm talking about ashwagandha, a.k.a. "Indian ginseng." And while many modern studies have shown that it can help you sleep and keep your mind sharp, the latest research shows that it can even combat stress eating and help you lose weight.

    A new study has found that ashwagandha can actually change HOW you eat and WHAT you crave -- especially in those moments when you're a bit overwhelmed and look to food for comfort.

    In just two months of taking 600 mg daily, people with chronic stress saw significant reductions in their food cravings compared to the placebo group. More than that, their body weight and body mass index (BMI) reduced by 3 percent.

    That may not sound like much, but it was more than DOUBLE what the placebo group saw.

    It's important to note that ashwagandha isn't an appetite suppressant. Instead, it works with your body's own natural mechanisms to cope with stress.

    Think of it as a "chill pill" for your adrenal glands. It balances your body's hormonal response to stress, so you don't have those spiking levels of cortisol that make you reach for a bag of chips to feel a bit better. (And you know how hard it is to stop crunching, once you've started.)

    It's crucial to deal with any stress you're feeling, since weight gain isn't the extent of your worries. In fact, stress is the underlying cause behind nearly 60 percent of all doctor's visits for a variety of conditions -- including depression, high blood pressure, and even heart disease.

    You can maximize ashwagandha's mellowing potential by pairing it with other stress-busters I've shared with you before, like rhodiola rosea and B vitamins.

    But if you're planning on getting THAT relaxed, just make sure you stay in for the night. The scientific name for the ashwagandha species of plant, "somnifera," means "sleep-inducing"!
