What is Ashwagandha?


We wanted to tell you about a few of the health benefits courtesy of this adaptogen that is currently our bestseller in the Wild Nutrition range.

This ancient medicinal herb is most well-known for its stress reducing and calm inducing properties; as an adaptogen it is able to help the body manage stress through balancing of our hormones. More and more studies are emerging with tests on this herb that demonstrate an impressive list of clinically proven health benefits.


  • Helps to reduce blood sugar levels through its effects on insulin sensitivity.
  • Optimises our stress response by lowering cortisol levels, which helps to make us feel less anxious.
  • Increases mental alertness and boosts memory through promotion of antioxidant activity that typically protects our cells from free radicals.
  • Not only does it optimise libido in both men and women, but also helps to increase testosterone levels and boost both sperm quality and fertility in men.
  • Aids sports performance through increases in muscle mass, strength, and recovery.


Ashwagandha is available to purchase in our studio (each bottle contains 60 capsules) for £20.50.


Although ashwagandha is safe for most people, certain individuals should not supplement with it, including pregnant or breastfeeding women, and anyone who suffers from an autoimmune disease.

If you are on medication for anything such as diabetes or thyroid issues or fall into any of the above categories, please make sure you consult your doctor or healthcare professional before supplementing with ashwagandha.
