How can you help battle stress? Adding Ashwagandha (Indian Ginseng), which is an adaptogenic herb is a good start. Adaptogens help balance, restore and protect the body against stress and other issues. They respond to any influence or stressor and help normalize the body.
Additionally, Ashwagandha is know as the "strength of the stallion" because it traditionally has been used to strengthen the immune system after illness.

A double-blinded, randomized controlled trial (RCTs, considered the “gold standard” of research) of 64 subjects found that, “Ashwagandha root extract safely and effectively improves an individual’s resistance towards stress and thereby improves self-assessed quality of life.”
We must note having a balanced diet, exercising, getting plenty of sleep and talking about your stress to a professional is recommended. We are not doctors, just people dealing with the stress too!
