What is ashwagandha

Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is a shrub from the nightshade family from India

and cultivated there on a large scale. Ashwagandha root, similarly to ginseng, has an active effect. That is why the plant is sometimes also called Indian ginseng. The name aswagandha means "horse scent" and comes from the characteristic horsey smell that characterizes the fresh root of the plant. Ashwagandha extract is a source of bioactive compounds called  withanolides with   adaptogenic  properties, one of the most active compounds of this group of compounds is  Withaferin A. In addition, ashwagandha also contains significant amounts of alkaloids.

Withanolides – steroid lactones found in plants, characterized by high biological activity.

How does ashwagandha work?

Ashwagandha is classified as an adaptogen, a group of plant-based substances that increase resistance to stress and maintain the proper balance of the body. Like other adaptogens, it increases the body's resistance to stressors by supporting the nervous system

and immunological. In addition to its adaptogenic properties, ashwagandha has a positive effect on the body in many areas of its functioning, including the mind - improving mental well-being and mental activity, as well as the circulatory and respiratory systems. In addition to its positive effect on mental condition, it also adds vitality, positively influencing physical endurance and sexual function. The synergistic effect of ashwaganda on the mind and body has been known for a long time, which is why its root has been used in ancient Hindu Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years.

Why only the root?

Due to the much lower price of leaves, which can be up to 1/15 of the price of roots, some producers use leaf admixtures in the extracts they produce. The original use of the leaves, however, was for topical skin treatments for conditions such as burns or boils, rather than for consumption. For thousands of years, the root has been a part of the plant used in traditional medicine for consumption to obtain adaptogenic benefits. The use of the root also has a much better scientific basis than the use of the leaves - in terms of clinical evidence and publications:

  • The vast majority of published clinical studies were conducted using root extract rather than leaf extract.
  • Monographs of the British, American and Indian pharmacopoeias as well as WHO publications refer only to the root of Withania somnifera as a plant raw material with medicinal properties. The leaf is not even mentioned for therapeutic use in any of them.
  • The consumption of ashwagandha roots was much greater, with a greater possibility of observing its safety, than the consumption of leaves.
  • Regulators in some European countries only allow the root of the plant, not the leaves.

The extract we use is obtained only from the root of the Withania somnifera plant, which ensures the best effect and safe use of our product.
