This plant is an herb and belongs to the same family as the tomato, it is a plump shrub with oval leaves and yellow flowers. It bears red fruit about the size of a raisin. The herb is native to the dry regions of India, northern Africa, and the Middle East, and today is also grown in more mild climates, including the United States. It contains many useful medicinal chemicals such as steroidal lactones, alkaloids, choline, fatty acids, amino acids, and a variety of sugars but the root of the plant is most commonly used in herbal remedies.
The Ashwagandha herb is what is called an Adaptogen herb. Adaptogens not only increase the resistance to the adverse effects of long-term stress but also it is an immune-stimulating and increase general sense of well-being. A multitude of other benefits are, improves learning, memory, and reaction time, Helps reduce brain-cell degeneration, stabilizes blood sugar, helps lower cholesterol and offers anti-inflammatory benefits as well.
Ashwagandha means ‘Smell of Horse,’ which refers to the fresh root’s distinct horsey smell, and the traditional belief that ingesting the herb will confer the strength and virility of a horse. It is frequently referred to as “Indian ginseng” because of its rejuvenating properties but it is botanically unrelated.
Medical researchers have been studying Ashwagandha for years with great interest and have completed more than 200 studies on the healing benefits of this botanical. The lowest effective dose of Ashwagandha, and perhaps the most cost-effective dose, is 300-500 mg. The optimal dose is 6,000 mg a day usually divided into three doses (2,000 mg) and while 300-500 mg is effective for most situations a lower dose of 50-100 mg has been seen as effective.
Although Ashwagandha is safe for most people, certain individuals shouldn't use it unless authorized by their doctor. Always contact your doctor before starting a new health supplement.
