My One Must Have herb For Your Dog's Stress

Withania has been used for centuries in Indian Ayurvedic medicine as a health tonic. Ashwagandha root powder is typically given to help restore good health to someone who’s debilitated and to improve the immune response. It’s considered a good remedy for someone who’s undergone a period of stress, which has left them feeling fatigued. It’s often given when energy or vitality is flagging. Now I’ve had a particularly stressful week, so guess what herb I’m taking at the moment??? You guessed it- Withania!! Now while it’s been used for humans for hundreds of years, it’s use in animals is only bow just starting to become more popular. And there’ great reasons why! This amazing herb is what is known as an adaptogenic herb - what does that mean? Basically, this means Withania helps promote relaxation and reduces anxiety as it helps your dog’s body ‘adapt to stress (physical or emotional). It supports the adrenals and thyroid health as well as powerfully supporting the immune system and also has the ability to protects the nervous system. And there are studies to show that Withania performs as well, if not better than many of the anxiety medications currently prescribed. When your dog is stressed or anxious, they produce elevated levels of the hormone cortisol in response to ‘fight or flight. Withania helps lower these elevated CORTISOL levels as it also nourishes those adrenal glands.
