Ashwagandha- Stress Remedial

Often referred to as “Indian ginseng”, the scientific name of this plant, Withania Somnifera, gives us a hint of its properties. It has always been regarded as very useful in the treatment of insomnia (somnifera comes from Latin and means that it can induce sleep) and as a natural remedy for stress. Ashwagandha is used for arthritis, anxiety, trouble sleeping (insomnia), tumors, tuberculosis, asthma, a skin condition marked by white patchiness (leukoderma), bronchitis, backache, fibromyalgia, menstrual problems, hiccups, and chronic liver disease.

Ashwagandha is also used as an “adaptogen” to help the body cope with daily stress, and as a general tonic.

Some people also use ashwagandha for improving thinking ability, decreasing pain and swelling (inflammation), and preventing the effects of aging. These characteristics have drawn the attention of researchers and physicians that are now conducting experiments to find out more about this fantastic plant.

Neuroscientists know that stress and malnutrition affect the connections between neurons and this result in neurodegenerative conditions, like Parkinson’s. Some studies have detected that the soothing potential of Ashwagandha helps to stop the effects of stress on the neurons. Researchers are now working on the plant’s potential to re-construct the neuron connections. Proving this true would raise Ashwagandha to the level of a powerful and natural aid against neural diseases.

This is an outstanding possibility, but what we do know now is that Ashwagandha brings down stress levels, has important antioxidant effects, and helps you to sleep better and to be focused on your intellectual tasks.
