From A to ZZZs: How Ashwagandha Can Help You Sleep
It’s not every day that someone encounters a medicinal herb with usage that dates back more than 3,000 years, but that’s exactly how long people have been using ashwagandha.
A staple of Ayurveda, an alternative medicine system with deep Indian roots, ashwagandha has historically been used for a variety of reasons. One of the things that impressed us the most about this potent plant is that modern research found ashwagandha capable of suppressing stress, anxiety and depression by reducing cortisol levels1.
Anyone who has ever had to navigate one of those conditions can attest to how difficult it is to overcome these mental health struggles. Those three conditions are also leading causes for insomnia, which means ashwagandha may be able to do more than just help with mental clarity.
Researchers found that ashwagandha was indeed effective at improving the quality of sleep2 and as a potential treatment for insomnia3. As Healthline writes, “Specifically, the leaves of the plant contain the compound triethylene glycol, which promotes sleep induction.4”
When Woven Earth was developing the formula for our Sleep Full-Spectrum CBD capsules, we made it our mission to include the best natural ingredients to promote restful sleep—and ashwagandha was at the top of the list.
In addition to full-spectrum hemp extract and ashwagandha, our Sleep capsules feature other functional ingredients that promote a good night’s sleep, including L-theanine, lemon balm and GABA.
