Help improve muscular strength and physical endurance
My daughter, Ari, loves aerial silks.
And while I know that physical activity is good for her, sometimes, I can’t help but worry that she’d hurt herself.
So, it’s heartening to know that Ashwagandha could help promote kids’ and teens’ muscle mass and strength — which may, in turn, lower their risk of sports-related injuries. (Phew.)
In an 8-week randomized human trial involving 40 healthy adult college students, researchers found that 500 mg of Ashwagandha root extract supplementation daily improved muscular strength, endurance, speed, and coordination better than a placebo.
