What is Ashwagandha?
Ashwagandha, also known as Indian Ginseng, is a popular herb used in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine. Its use can be traced back to 6000 BC. Found in the subtropical parts of India, the plant is an evergreen shrub with small green flowers and an orange-red fruit.
Though the leaves, seeds and fruit contain medicinal properties, the part that is most valued is the root. Over 50 chemical constituents have been identified in ashwagandha. In addition to essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals, it contains bioactive compounds, including steroidal alkaloids and lactones, collectively known as withanolides.
The withanolides in ashwagandha are believed to have a range of therapeutic effects.
What are the Benefits of Ashwagandha?
Ashwagandha has many scientifically proven health benefits. Studies have shown that ashwagandha has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and immunomodulatory effects. It has also been shown to help neurological, endocrine, and cardiovascular function.
REDUCES STRESS AND ANXIETY: Ashwagandha is perhaps best known for its ability to combat physical and mental stress. Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, a natural substance that helps the body adapt to stress and maintain balance in the body.
One of the main ways that ashwagandha helps reduce stress is by regulating the body's stress response. When we experience stress, our bodies release a hormone called cortisol. Chronic high levels of cortisol can have negative effects on the body, including increased inflammation and impaired immune function.
Research has shown that ashwagandha can help regulate cortisol levels. One study published in the Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association found that participants who took ashwagandha supplements had significantly lower cortisol levels compared to a placebo group. In addition, ashwagandha also has calming effects on the nervous system. It has been shown to increase the production of the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which helps regulate brain activity and has a calming effect.
IMPROVES ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE: Ashwagandha has also been studied for its potential benefits on muscle strength and athletic performance, particularly in athletes and active individuals. Ashwagandha has been shown to increase testosterone levels in men and increase muscle protein synthesis, which is the process by which the body builds and repairs muscle tissue.
One study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition found that participants who took ashwagandha supplements had significantly increased muscle strength and size. Other studies concluded that ashwagandha improved measures of cardiorespiratory endurance, power output and velocity during resistance exercise.
SUPPORTS SEXUAL FUNCTION IN MEN AND WOMEN: Ashwagandha provides potential benefits on libido, erectile dysfunction (ED), and fertility. Given its effect on testosterone production, it is not surprising that the herb helps men with low sex drive and weak sexual function. Ashwagandha is known to stimulate the production of nitric oxide, which enhances blood flow to the genitals. In addition, research shows that ashwagandha supplementation can increase sperm count, motility, and quality in men facing infertility.
While ashwagandha has been studied primarily for its potential effects on male sexual health, there is also emerging evidence to suggest that it may have benefits for female sexual function. The mechanisms by which ashwagandha may improve female sexual function are not fully understood, but its ability to reduce stress may be a factor.
One study published in the Journal of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine found that ashwagandha supplementation resulted in increased sexual satisfaction and lubrication in women with sexual dysfunction.
Additionally, ashwagandha may help to address underlying hormonal issues to improve fertility in women. In one study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, women who took ashwagandha had significantly increased levels of luteinizing hormone (LH), which stimulates ovulation.
Ashwagandha also has been shown to help to improve ovulatory function and increase the chances of pregnancy in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a common hormonal disorder that can cause infertility.
ENHANCES BRAIN FUNCTION: Ashwagandha has been found to have a positive impact on brain function. It has been studied for its potential benefits on memory and focus, especially in individuals with cognitive impairment and age-related memory decline.
A study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology found that ashwagandha improved attention, speed in processing information, and overall mental skills. The effects of ashwagandha on memory and focus may be due, in part, to its ability to reduce anxiety, which can have a negative impact on cognitive function. Its antioxidant properties also reduce oxidative stress in the brain. Finally, ashwagandha may have direct effects on the brain function by increasing the production of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that is important for learning and memory.
- BOOSTS IMMUNE SYSTEM: Ashwagandha has immune-boosting properties that help protect the body against infection and disease. White blood cells produce antibodies that play an essential role in the immune system by helping the body defend itself from bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. They are responsible for fighting off infections and diseases, and low levels of white blood cells can increase the risk of illness. Research shows that ashwagandha supports the production of antibodies.
