Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “luck.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!
Recently, I’ve been using a brand of CBD with ashwaganda, but ran out of my sample. I’m so lucky to have been gifted a bottle of ashwaganda capsules. They are a great stress reducer and make me feel calm and relaxed without any euphoria.
Just a warning though, before everyone rushes out to get some. All the research I’ve done suggests you only take it for three months. Now, I don’t know if that means it’s ok to take it for three months, stop for a while and take it again, or not. Further research on ashwaganda is necessary. But, for now, if it makes me feel as good as CBD, I’m keeping some around as a backup for days I don’t have any CBD.
It’s commonly ground and put in capsules, and the dosage varies, but mine is 800mg in two capsules to be taken once a day, they suggest after breakfast. It’s the brand Organic India and had it not been given to me, it runs about $18.99 per bottle. Totally with it!!
Warnings for pregnant women, and people on thyroid medication seem to say don’t use.
If you want to try it, ask your doctor if it interacts with any medications you’re on.
Since I’m in steroids right now for inflammation of my muscles, which makes me shaky, it helps to level me out.
Thanks to Linda G Hill for the #SoCS prompt today. We’re so lucky to have her! 🤗
