Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is also known as the Indian ginseng and is indicated in Ayurvedic medicine as a daily rasayana, or anti-aging therapy. It acts as an adaptogen and immune modulator; nourishing and strengthening the inner reserve of the human body. Ashwagandha literally means, “to impart the strength of the horse.”
Research shows Ashwagandha to promote anti-inflammatory, diuretic, sedative, antibacterial, anti-fungal, and amoebicidal activity. Studies of the antitumor and radiosensitizing properties of Ashwagandha have yielded encouraging results. Studies have also shown Ashwagandha to be an excellent hematinic, and to contain high levels of iron and free amino acids such as glycine, valine, tyrosine and alanine.
