For better or worse, stress is a part of life. In certain instances (attempting a 1-RM on squats, cramming for finals, or being chased by a predator), stress is an excellent thing -- it heightens alertness, reaction time, and motivation. However, chronic stress is a whole other issue, and more often than not, we live in a state of chronic stress. We work longer hours, we sleep less, and we have more demands placed on our time and effort, meaning we have less time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the wonder that is our life. This chronic state of stress can lead to several unwanted side effects, including impaired sleep, poor mood, irritability, and weight gain! Fortunately, there are several natural, non-addictive, and safe options available for improving our response to the ever-increasing amount of stressors we have to face each day. They’re called adaptogens, and today we're going to look at one of the most popular adaptogens of all time in Ashwagandha.
As a former collegiate athlete, I’ve has always had a passion for all things health and wellness. SteelFit® is a culmination of all my years of education, training, and passion combined.
