Immune System Stimulation
The immune system is your body’s primary defense against invaders like viruses and bacteria. One of ashwagandha’s investigated benefits is its ability to improve the immune system. This can increase the body’s production of killer cells that battle pathogens. Not only that, but it has also been shown to reduce inflammation.
Many bacteria are becoming resistant to antibiotics due to their overuse. These can be very dangerous as they are much harder to treat. Ashwagandha’s ability to naturally boost the immune system may help to fight these infections. At the same time, keep in mind that studies haven’t shown enough evidence that ashwagandha could replace antibiotics, so continue to follow your doctor’s orders.
