Seeking Health Ashwagandha Extract is a natural dietary supplement, containing the extract from Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha), standardized for the content of 5% withanolides. One vegetarian capsule contains ca. 420 mg of the extract. Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb with positive influence on the organism, confirmed by the scientific studies.

Adaptogenic herbs are plants known and used for thousands of years. Due to its properties, they have been considered exceptional, saint plants. Adaptogens have been enjoying popularity especially in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine. Currently, they have been precisely tested and scientific results have confirmed incredible properties of these plants.

The work adaptare means adaptation. Adaptogens have influence on cellular level, increasing the resistance of the organism to stress, caused both by external factors (environmental conditions, free radicals, noise) and internal factors (psychological stress). Moreover, adaptogens are rich in antioxidants, protecting the organism from oxidative stress and premature aging. They positively influence energy level, regeneration of the organism, well-being and emotional stability. Most probably, this exceptional effect of adaptogens results from the stimulation of unspecific responses of the organism through the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis (HPA axis).

In order to classify a given plant to the group of adaptogens, it needs to fulfill certain conditions, formulated by the pioneer of research on adaptogens, Mikolaj Lazarew:

  • lack of undesirable effects,
  • general normalizing influence on the organism,
  • unspecific immunization of the organism to stress factors.

All these postulates are fulfilled by Ashwagandha (W. somnifera).

Ashwagandha also called “Indian ginseng”, is a plant from the family of Solanaceae. Its therapeutic material are the fruit and root. In the roots of ashwagandha there are alkaloids, phytosterols (beta-sitosterol), coumarin, phenolic acids, sitoindosides and withanolides A-Y.

Withanolides are key active substances present in the root of ashwagandha, to which the plant owes its adaptogen properties. The effect of withanolides is based on increasing sensitivity of serotonin-binding receptors (5-TH), primarily receptors 5-HT1 and 5-HT2. It causes the growth of efficiency and strength of binding serotonin, i.e. the so-called happiness hormone with specific receptors and consequently the intensification of its effects.

This mechanism is responsible for the ability of Ashwagandha to improve cognitive processes, memorization and learning. Visible improvement of well-being is also observed as well as the increase of self-confidence, anti-depressant and anti-anxiety effects. Ashwagandha extract stimulates the activity of thyroid (may constitute helpful complementation of diet in the therapy of thyroid hypothyroidism), stimulates the activity of lymphocytes Tc, when applied regularly, it may improve blood parameters (decrease the level of cholesterol, triglycerides and LDL) and strengthens bone calcification.

Ashwagandha increases the level of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) enzyme, carrying out the synthesis of nitric oxide (NO) from arginine. NO is the compounds\ with high activity. It is an endothelial relaxing factor (EDRF), which regulates blood pressure, inhibits platelet aggregation, influence the immune system and also works like a neuromodulator in the central nervous system, positively influencing the process of memorization.

To sum up, Seeking Health Ashwagandha Extract is a high-quality dietary supplement, especially recommended to people who live in stress, perform mental work, are overworked, deal with mood fluctuations and also for physically active people in order to increase efficiency and endurance of the organism. Due to the presence of the standardized extract, we may be sure about the quality of the preparation and the content of pharmacologically active withanolides.

Withanolides

Information

Withanolides - biologically active compounds belonging to the group of steroid lactones, occurring in some green plants. In supplementation they are perceived mainly as active substances of Withania somnifera, commonly called Ashwagandha. The percentage content of withanolides in Ashwagandha extracts is considered the indicator of the product’s quality - the higher the content, the more effective the supplement. In non-standardized extracts, the content of withanolides is estimated for 1% of dry muscle mass of Withania somnifera leaves.

Being the main active substances of Ashwagandha, withanolides are responsible for the majority of effects of its application. Regular supplementation with Withania somnifera extracts demonstrates adaptogen effect. It increases the organism’s tolerance to stress factors, holistically promoting the functions of the organism. It may decrease cortisol level in case of its excessively high concentrations, promote cognitive abilities and facilitate concentration. Supplementation with Ashwagandha also supports maintaining proper daily rhythm and is conducive to falling in a deep sleep.

Some sources also indicate that supplementation with Withania somnifera extracts positively influences the level of testosterone in the organism. Current research results indicate, however, that this effects of supplementation may be achieved only in people with initially excessively low secretion of the male sex hormone.
