What is Ashwagandha?

Ashwagandha is an Indian herb also known by the names of Indian ginseng and Winter cherry. The botanical name, however, is Withania somnifera. Ashwagandha is world-renowned for its medicinal properties, for which it is used in different ayurvedic medicines. Even the tuberous roots of this herb are used in different medicines.

Different Effects and Benefits of Ashwagandha

Indians have been reaping benefits of this medicinal herb since ages. The medicinal benefits of ashwagandha make it even suitable for being a constituent in other medicines. Because of its medicinal properties, it affects different body systems, but all in a positive way. It acts as a natural detoxification agent and strengthens the immunity of human body. This herbal remedy overall streamlines the body processes and make it work in a healthy manner. Ashwagandha is a potent antioxidant agent, thus strengthening body immunity. It has also been known to improve and sharpen the memory and concentration power; it also catalyzes quick subject recollection.

In addition to the above effects, it has been known to reduce anxiety and stress. It also relieves menopausal women from hot flashes and helps reduce edginess and irritability in them. Since ages, ashwagandha has been known to have anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties which have been exploited by the natives very well. It is widely used to enhance efficacy of medicines for arthritis and joint pains. Also, ashwagandha helps lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol and maintain good cholesterol levels in addition to liver protection. It also increases the production of RBCs and increases energy and endurance of the body. Also, in addition to providing healthy thyroid function, it helps in relaxation and restful sleep. It is also known to reduce tension headaches.

Dosage and Prescription of Ashwagandha

As it is an ayurvedic herb, it can even be taken without prescription, but we do not recommend so. Every person has different metabolism and should take the prescribed dosage of ashwagandha. Although, being natural, it does not have any side effects, but consumption should be under medical guidance only. Usually, it is recommended to start slowly and increase gradually up to the level of tolerance. Remember, only prolonged and regular intake gives you the best results. It might take from weeks to months to notice the effects caused by ashwagandha.

Form and Availability of Ashwagandha

In ancient times, according to Ayurveda, ashwagandha leaves and berries were directly applied to the affected areas, like tumor, carbuncle, or ulcer, to get relief. However, in more modern world, it is available in the form of capsules, powder, tablets, and even tea formulations. It is available at almost all the ayurvedic and allopathic pharmacies in India. It can also be ordered online.

For best results, it is recommended to seek guidance from a herbal expert or a naturopathic physician. With correct dosage and regular intake of ashwagandha, you can enjoy a healthy stress-free life.
