Ashwagandha is an extract obtained from roots. Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) has been used in the Indian tradition of Ayurveda to support musculoskeletal function and as a tonic to promote overall health. “Experimental studies demonstrate that Ashwagandha is an adaptogen that supports resistance to physical, biological, and chemical stresses and supports endurance, muscle recovery and cognitive health”.
The main active ingredients present in Ashwagandha extract are Withanolides, Alkaloids, and Saponins, which have antitumor, antistress, anxiolytic, anti-inflammatory, antidepressive and rejuvenating properties.
Ashwagandha is perhaps best known for its ability to reduce stress and anxiety. “Cortisol is known as a stress hormone, the adrenal glands release it in response to stress. High cortisol brings down levels of other hormones and mood-lifting neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine and may also slow down metabolism. Aashwagandha may help reduce cortisol levels by regulating chemical signaling in the nervous system”.
