How Ashwagandha Helps Improve Adrenal Health

How Ashwagandha Helps Improve Adrenal Health

Poor adrenal gland health can cause the adrenal glands to produce too much or too little cortisol which can contribute to fatigue and anxiety.

Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), also known as Indian winter cherry or Indian ginseng, is a powerful adaptogenic herb with a long history in Indian Ayurvedic medicine.

During periods of high stress the body can make too much cortisol which can increase a person’s stress response. Ashwagandha has been shown to help reduce high cortisol levels as a response to stress and hence reduce your response.1,2

In a 2012 study with 64 people with a history of chronic stress, researchers found that ashwagandha supplementation was able to substantially reduce cortisol levels and stress.3 Researchers in another study also found a reduction in cortisol levels in 130 chronically stressed people.4

Ashwagandha can also help elevate cortisol levels that are too low.5


Ashwagandha can help balance the adrenal glands to reduce stress and fatigue.

In addition to ashwagandha, there are several other nutrients and herbs which have been shown to positively affect adrenal health and help optimize cortisol levels. We combined them into one simple formula called Adrenal Support by Beyond Vita®.*
