Quarantine is over for most people, life is starting to return to somewhat of a "normal" state, but the affects of everything have left more and more people stressed and depressed, more than in recent past. The loss of loved ones, layoffs, economic / financial hardships, and even the uncertainty of "will things ever be the same again?" is taking a toll of our mental state.
In a recent study, almost 58% of people surveyed stated that they are battling some form of anxiety, stress and/or depression that they've never had before. A baffling statistic I read the other day is that over 40 million adults (over the age of 18) have some sort of anxiety / stress / depression related disorder; that equates out to be around 18% of our population. Of those 40 million adults, only 37% of them are seeking treatment of some kind. Some feel embarrassed that they're going through this, some are in a mental state where they just can't get the motivation to seek help, and some, frankly can't afford to obtain the help they need so they go untreated. These mental health disorders can adversely affect your mind, body and spirit and if untreated can potentially have grave effects. This is where the ancient Indian medicinal herb Ashwagandha (or Indian Winter Cherry or Indian Ginseng) will play an important role in your long-term mental state recovery.
Ashwagandha is a herb primarily located in India, the Middle East and parts of Africa; the roots and berries are widely used for their medicinal / health benefits and have been for centuries. Ashwagandha also plays an important role in Ayurveda, an ancient Indian practice / form of alternative medicine that heals the body and rejuvenates the mind. It has been used for over 3,000 years to reduce or relieve the effects of mental disorders, boost energy levels and improve cognitive brain function and memory.
