Stress can affect your body in many ways, from disturbing your sleep and affecting your mood to impacting your memory and even your sexual energy.

Ashwagandha, widely considered the “King of the Herbal Kingdom,” has been used as a rejuvenative and daily tonic for many centuries. It’s regarded as the go-to herb in India’s traditional Ayurvedic practice.

Benefits

Because it acts as a powerful adaptogen, ashwagandha can help balance the normal functions of your organs and systems. This, in turn, can help your body deal with internal and external stressors and support your immune function activity.

Ashwagandha can help your body and mind adapt to stress while supporting your nervous system and adrenal health, as well as enhancing your energy supplies and memory.

While ashwagandha root substances, alkaloids and withanolides, may be two of its most important bioactive constituents, Ayurvedic experts believe the potential benefits of the root come from a synergistic effect of all root components including phytosterols, flavonoids, coumarins and essential oils.

Organic Ashwagandha includes the entire whole root from ashwagandha for the synergistic effects of all root components, including phytosterols, flavonoids, coumarins and essential oils.

The formula is carefully produced by a high-quality manufacturer in India that is steeped in and experienced in Ayurvedic traditional practices for optimal benefits.

Additional Information

Ashwagandha, also known as Indian ginseng, Withania somnifera, or winter cherry, is a plant that’s been used as a rejuvenative and daily tonic for many centuries.

Because glutathione is a key antioxidant protector that helps guard against the damaging effects of reactive oxygen species (ROS), ashwagandha with its naturally occurring withanalide may help protect your brain cells.

Referred to as rayasana in the Ayurveda tradition – translated as “herb that rejuvenates” – it’s considered the number one, go-to herb in India’s traditional practice.

What is Ayurveda? Centred around herbs and spices, Ayurveda is an ancient holistic practice. It’s widely recognised as an authoritative source of knowledge and truth in natural health.

Ashwagandha has clearly withstood the test of time in this highly revered system.

A small evergreen perennial herb that grows to about two feet tall, ashwagandha’s light tan roots have been studied the most.

In India, the plants are harvested by hand, roots separated and then processed into a powdered extract. The leaves are traditionally used for tea.

Ashwagandha is a complex herb with many phytochemical constituents. In fact, it’s one of the very few herbs in the world with such a broad scope of phytochemicals. Here are just a few of the substances found in the roots:

  • Alkaloids, including withanine, withananine, and beta-sisterol
  • Steroidal lactones, including withanolides
  • Phytosterols, including stigmasterol and beta-sitosterol
  • Flavonoids, including saponins, sitoindosides and choline 
  • Coumarins, including scopoletin and aesculetin
  • Essential oils, including ipuranol and withaniol

While ashwagandha’s alkaloids and withanolides are two of the most important bioactive constituents, Ayurvedic experts believe that the potential benefits of the roots come from a synergistic effect of all of the components.

Ashwagandha is a potent adaptogen

An adaptogen is a substance that helps restore or balance the normal functions of an organ or system. This is turn can help your body deal with internal and external stressors and support your immune system activity.

As an adaptogen, ashwagandha plays a balancing role in your body, and especially helps maintain harmony between your brain and hormone-producing organs.

Ashwagandha helps balance your brain-adrenal axis as well as your thyroid gland. You need proper balance in these areas to enjoy optimal adrenal and thyroid health, along with:

  • A positive mood
  • A healthy metabolism
  • Abundant energy
  • An optimally functioning immune system
  • Normal, healthy sexual energy

Adaptogens help your body and mind adapt to stress. When you can resist the harmful effects of stress, you help strengthen your body’s systems and support your nervous system and adrenal health.

And by regaining balance, you can benefit from both greater energy and endurance and calm and focus!

Researchers have discovered that ashwagandha increases an important antioxidant in your body called glutathione.

Glutathione is essential for healthy cell development and your body’s detoxification processes.

Known as the “master antioxidant”, glutathione is especially needed for cells and tissues that experience lots of wear and tear and come into constant contact with free radicals.

Your brain certainly meets that criteria!

As you age, glutathione levels in your brain and blood flow to the central part of your brain (your hippocampus) decline. These two conditions create a “perfect storm” for damage to your brain cells.
