Dr. Marty Ross gives a basic information on Ashwagandha and its benefits, discusses what happens when your body has to deal with too much stress and finally goes deeper into Ashwaganda’s role in handling chronic Lyme disease symptoms.
Dr. Marty Ross points out that you should feel more energetic with more stamina after taking Ashwaganda, so you won’t need to take naps in afternoon. Furthermore, people who suffer an occasional drop in blood sugar should experience less of those. A fair alternative for Ashwaganda would be Rhodiola or Eleuthero (aka Siberian Ginseng) which might be too strong for those with chronic Lyme disease, but should work just fine for people looking to increase their energy levels even more.
Even if you don’t suffer from chronic Lyme disease, make sure to check the list of Ashwagandha benefits here.
One teaspoon of our raw ashwagandha powder is 8 grams so an 1/8 of a teaspoon would be 1000mg, or the equivalent of the two pills mentioned in this video. Its not clear whether those pills recommended are of the raw powder or an extract.
Also discussed are the energetic actions of the herbs with Ashwaganda not being as “hot” as rhodiola or eleuthero. Depending on your constitution type and environmental factors different herbs may be more suitable for you.
