Ashwagandha helps increase resistance to stress and anxiety in individuals with a history of chronic stress, thereby improving their quality of life. (1,2) It is also used as a workout and exercise supplement. (3) Ashwagandha helps improve physical performance in previously untrained individuals when combined with regular resistance training. (4) In addition, it helps promote healthy testosterone production in males. (4,5)
