Ever heard of Ashwagandha. It is a hidden gem in Indian classic medicine and it really is also known as winter cherry or Indian Ginseng. In this article I will explain why it is actually a great idea to use Ashwagandha to help boost hair growth and also help stop hair loss
Ashwagandha is called by many names, one of the most popular is Indian ginseng or Indian Winter Cherry. It is found in India and some parts of Asia. It is a priceless herb when it comes to stopping hair loss. The main reason why it helps stop slow hair growth and also helps put an end to hair loss is that hair loss and slow hair growth is normally caused by a hormone known as cortisol. Ashwagandha reduces Cortisol (and it also stops anxiety),
The herb also increases endogenous antioxidants. However more importantly Indian ginseng helps the body produce and manufacture healthy amounts of thyroid hormone naturally. Ashwagandha will also boost Adrenal function. Be warned thought that if you have an overactive thyroid .Or hyperthyroidism you may want to be extra careful as this herb may increase your thyroid function slightly over and above what you need. The best way to avoid this hyperthyroidism is to do a Basal temperature test. This would let you know if you have hyperthyroidism.
The Facts is Ashwagandha reduces cortisol. And by doing that allows your hair to grow as fast s nature intended. And again cortisol is believed to encourage and even cause hair loss. The next question is how do we use Ashwagandha? It is relatively safe. Personally I have used it for years without side effects. When it comes to winter cherry find the concentrated version, taking 750 mgs does not necessarily mean you are getting high concentrations of the herb .look for a ration of 4 to 1
For that reason . make Ashwagandha a part of your hair growing arsenal. Don’t forget that stress and tension aggravates hair loss and slows down hair growth. And Cortisol is also believed to lessen testosterone. Also there is a thyroid/metabolic link to hair loss
Additionally, prolonged bouts of stress can and will lead to adrenal burnout. Adrenal burnout will and can cause hair loss and that is why you need Ashwagandha - it reduces cortisol and stress related hormones all of which play a role causing hair loss.
Ashwagandha is used by lots of individuals as herbal medicine and has been utilized this way for centuries. The herb makes you really feel younger, stronger and healthier, and they also help in stopping stress, increases energy and power levels and will help in the growth of healthy hair. This makes it really sought after by men in particular. It is actually extremely potent and has been employed in India for centuries to cure immune- related illnesses
