Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is a delicate medium-sized shrub. It is native to India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. It is sometimes called the "queen of Ayurveda" because it has been used in traditional Indian medicine for centuries to treat a wide variety of ailments. The pharmacopoeial raw material is mainly the root – a rich source of unique steroidal lactones called withanolides. They structurally resemble ginsenosides found in ginseng (hence the term "Indian ginseng").
Ashwagandha is considered an adaptogenic plant. It helps the body to adapt to adverse conditions and increases resistance to stressors. According to the researchers, the withanolides found in the root of the plant favor the stabilization of HPA axis activity and reduce the level of cortisol – a stress hormone. People who regularly use ashwagandha notice that in case of excess tension, it exerts a calming effect, soothes nerves, and promotes a feeling of relaxation. On the other hand, during periods of exhaustion and lack of energy, it adds vitality and vigor. Besides, it helps to inhibit “racing thoughts", reduces the time needed to fall asleep, and may contribute to the improvement of sleep quality.
Ashwagandha has considerable health-promoting potential. It may help to increase the body's immunity. Studies on an animal model have shown that Ashwagandha extracts stimulate NK cell activity and reduce inflammation in the body. Besides, withanolides and flavonoids present in the root are strong antioxidants. They scavenge free radicals out of the body and reduce the risk of oxidative stress, which is important in the prevention of civilization diseases and preventing premature aging. Withanolides are also credited with antibacterial, anti-cancer, and antihypertensive properties.
