Reduce blood sugar and stress levels naturally with KSM-66® Ashwagandha. Ashwagandha is one of the powerful ancient herbs known for its medicinal properties to relieve stress, improve the immune system, infertility and many more. Ashwagandha is one of the several herbs that carry adaptogenic properties. Adaptogens are natural plant extracts that benefit the body in stabilizing internal body functions and cope with harmful stressors. Ashwagandha supplements provide various health benefits, especially the herb’s abilities to lower blood sugar and stress levels. An increase in sugar levels in blood and tissues also causes an increase in inflammatory markers, insulin resistance, and LDL-cholesterol (Rao, 2018).
Many factors can contribute to stress and anxiety, but they can make the body less immune to harmful stressors after a certain level. For people with diabetes, eating habits become a big challenge as it requires a great deal of discipline, especially in today’s hectic world. One of the challenges is dealing with all the side effects of blood sugar-lowering medications. Ashwagandha is beneficial for diabetes patients, which stimulates insulin production and regulates blood sugar levels.
