IF YOU HAVE HYPOTHYROID SYMPTOMS...give this herb a try and take it with iodine. I take Ashwagandha for anxiety, stress, horrid PMS. This works! It's one of the herbs that is included in a thyroid supplement that I take called "Thyroid Energy" made by NOW FOODS. No more depression, insomnia, negative thoughts. I feel like myself again.

Ashwagandha extract does have an anxiolytic effect for me, helps with insomnia, and also noticeably enhances libido. Overall, I feel steadier and stronger. I will be recommending it to family members.
