Now Foods Ashwagandha is a dietary supplement with an extract of Indian ginseng root (commonly known as ashwagandha), with a standardised content of bioactive substances- withanolides.

Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) - a medicinal plant used in Eastern medicine; called the Indian ginseng because of its adaptogenic properties, i.e. increasing the organism's stress resistance, stabilising the mood and regulating the functioning of the immune system. In Ayurveda it is treated as a remedy for rheumatism, states of fatigue, impotence and weakening memory. It contains many biologically active substances, for example nicotinic alkaloids, beta-sitosterol, whitanolides (including withanolide D), coumarin, sitoindosides, chlorogenic acid and withaferin A.

Active components' properties
Withanolides are a pharmacologically active component with a typical steroid structure which occurs naturally in the root of that plant. Together with withaferin A, it exhibits the following properties: antioxidant, antistress, cytotoxic, adaptogenic, it induces calm, prevents cancer, reduces arterial blood pressure, it improves the intellectual capacity of the brain, it is a neurotonic, it improves sexual performance, reduces anxiety, inflammations, fights fungi (effective against Aspergillus niger, Candida albicans) and bacteria (e.g. Staphyloccocus aureus, hay bacillus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomona aeruginosa).

Stress resistance
Ashwagandha is widely used as a calming, relaxing and sleep-improving agent. It allows the organism to adapt to stress, thanks to which it goes back to homeostasis despite the influence of stressors. It restores the organism's normal functioning in spite of a poor diet, lack of sleep or physical and mental fatigue.

Good mood
The Indian ginseng is widely appreciated, mostly for its ability to improve the mood, reduce stress, anxiety and depression, improve adapting to the environment, increase self-confidence, extroversion and openness to new experiences.

It owes its properties to the ability of sensitising serotonin receptors (5-HT) - the same amount of serotonin is stronger and more efficient in specific binding with its receptor, i.e. it increases the frequency of nervous impulses on serotoninergic tracts.

Application in mental disorders
Numerous studies, experiments and practice confirm the anxiolytic (calming), antidepressant and neuroprotective effect of ashwagandha extracts, and no adverse reactions and toxicity were observed.

In one of the studies, scientists used an alcoholic extract in patients who suffered from anxiety neurosis. By the end of the month, many of the most onerous symptoms like states of anxiety and social phobia had disappeared. Other experiments confirmed its usefulness in the case of bipolar disorder, alcohol-related psychosis and schizophrenia.

In another experiment, it inhibited the production of the peptide β-amyloid in brain tissue, that is the main cause of Alzheimer's disease. Based on that information, scientists suspect that ashwagandha can be applied in neurodegenerative disease treatment, as well as in treating their symptoms.

Treating joint inflammations
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory, chronic, autoimmunological rheumatic disease. It is characterised by the occurrence of inflammations in joints connected with pain, swelling, stiffness and impaired motor system. It leads to the destruction of cartilage, joint deformities, contractures, functioning impairments, and eventually, it often becomes the cause of disability, progressing disability and premature death.

Clinical studies were conducted among 60 patients with RA in which they were to stop taking all drugs (including NSAIDs) and then for 90 days they were given 14 grams of ashwagandha root powder a day (in two divided doses). After the treatment, a 93% decrease in joint stiffness was observed, as well as an 83% increase in the strength of a hand squeeze, a 24% decrease in the number of leukocytes (decreased autoimmunological reaction) and a 24% increase in the level of iron in blood serum. Based on that, scientists consider the Indian ginseng to be a potential medicine in RA treatment.

Anticancer properties
One of the studies confirmed ashwagandha extract's antioxidant, detoxifying and anticancer properties. A 16-week supplementation in mice efficiently prevented cancer (fibroblastic sarcoma), artificially caused by the administration of 20-methylcholanthrene (a strongly carcinogenic agent).

Detoxifying the organism
Ashwagandha is beneficial for the functioning of internal organs, particularly the kidneys and the liver. One of the studies confirmed its detoxifying properties in the case of poisoning with carbendazim, which is cumulated in the kidneys and the liver and damages the organs. The administration of ashwagandha root powder nearly completely removed the toxin from the organism within 48 hours.

Other properties of ashwagandha:
- it partly regenerates colourants in hair, prevents hair greying
- it stimulates the thyroid gland, preventing hypothyroid function
- it reduces the level of glucose in the blood, prevents diabetes
- it stimulates the immune system, i.e. phagocytosis and macrophage activity
- it improves blood parameters (increases the level of haemoglobin)
- it regulates the lipid profile (reduces the level of LDL cholesterol, triglycerides and increases the level of HDL cholesterol)
- it increases the level of nitric oxide (NO) synthesis, boosting its concentration in the system
- it stimulates the activity of cytotoxic lymphocytes T
- it supports bone structure by decreasing the loss of calcium

Now Foods Ashwagandha is a dietary supplement recommended mostly for people who live in constant stress, who are overworked, exhausted, have problems with sleep and the mood. Because of a number of healthy properties, it can be used to support the circulatory and immune systems, improve the functioning of thyroid, blood parameters and lipid profile.
