So, What’s Up With Ashwagandha?
Considered a magical herb, Ashwagandha is a gift from nature. It plays a vital role in Ayurvedic medicine – a holistic system of medicine developed in India thousands of years ago. Studies have revealed that its use started as far back as 6000 BC.
Ashwagandha is widely known to treat everyday physical and mental concerns like stress, anxiety, lack of sleep, exhaustion, and more. With its high concentration of vital minerals and vitamins, it’s not surprising that Ashwagandha is also known as “Indian ginseng”.
As a beauty enhancer, Ashwagandha protects and improves skin complexion by blocking free radicals, reducing fine lines, and stimulating collagen production. The added collagen helps restore lost elasticity, repair tissue damage, and maintain firmness. Thanks to this wonder herb’s anti-stress properties, it can also fend off acne-inducing stress hormones.
Why Do We Use Ashwagandha In TreeActiv Products?
Ashwagandha has plenty of healing and skin-enhancing benefits. It works as a great anti-aging tool because of its ability to moisturize, protect, and calm the skin. Dry skin can make fine lines and wrinkles appear more pronounced, so by moisturizing, you replenish your skin’s moisture while reversing the early signs of aging. Ashwagandha is also known to clear dirt and impurities from skin pores. Many dermatologists even prescribe this botanical to treat dry and rough skin.
Ashwagandha is highly prized as a remedy to strengthen hair and control hair loss. The antioxidants in the herb are known to treat the corrosion of tissue, effectively delaying premature graying. Stress is a major cause of hair loss, but thanks to the herb’s stress-fighting power, combined with the ability to improve the scalp’s grip on hair, you can preserve body and volume.
