Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is commonly known as “Indian Winter Cherry” or “Indian Ginseng.” Ashwagandha has been used as a rasayana (tonic) for a wide range of health benefits for over 6,000 years. A rasayana is an herbal preparation that promotes a youthful state of physical and mental health and expands happiness. These types of remedies are given to small children as tonics, and are also taken by the middle-aged and elderly to increase longevity. Most of the raysayana herbs are adaptogenic/anti-stress agents.
Ashwagandha has been shown to enhance the function of the brain and nervous system, improve memory, improve function of the reproductive system, promoting a healthy sexual and reproductive balance. Being a powerful adaptogen, Ashwagandha enhances the body’s resilience to stress. Many of the biologically active chemical constituents of Ashwagandha improve the body’s defense against disease by improving cell-mediated immunity. It also possesses potent antioxidant properties that help protect against cellular damage caused by free radicals. The cognition-promoting effects can be used for children with memory deficits, in head injury patients, in prolonged illness, or in old age when Alzheimer's is prevalent.
