Studies have shown that ashwagandha may help reduce cortisol levels.

It has also been shown to decrease markers of inflammation, such as C-reactive protein (CRP). This marker is linked to an increased risk of heart disease.

Ashwagandha supplements may improve brain function, memory, reaction time, and the ability to perform tasks.
