Called the "rejuvenator" in Ayurvedic medicine, ashwagandha is used as a tonic to calm nerves, but it can also help fight fatigue, thanks to its active alkaloid-based compounds. Pair it with protein-rich ingredients, which have a grounding effect, such as protein powder, nut butter, and cacao nibs. (They can also help mask the woody flavor.) Look for the herb in ground powder form at health-food stores.
