Perhaps more than any other herb, this one sure seems like it’s got something for everyone.

And with two varieties of this herb – American and Asian – you should get double the benefits, right? Well, I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again.

Could the answer to today’s modern stresses be found in the roots of an ancient Indian shrub? That’s what proponents of ashwagandha are banking on. This plant-based remedy has been used for millennia as a treatment for a slew of concerns and conditions, from arthritis and insomnia to infertility and low libido. Even better? The herb appears to act as an adaptogen, which means it may modify the body’s response to stress, both calming anxiety and adding a gentle boost of energy. Sounds amazing, right? There’s just one problem. There’s very little good evidence in people to support these claims. […]
