Ashwagandha is a shrub that grows in Asia and Africa. It has leaves that never die. It is often used to deal with stress. There isn't much proof that it can be used as a "adaptogen."
Ashwagandha has chemicals in it that might help calm the brain, lower blood pressure, reduce swelling, and change the immune system.
Ashwagandha has been used for a long time as an adaptogen, which means it helps the body deal with stress. People think that adaptogens help the body deal with both physical and mental stress. It is used to treat insomnia, aging, anxiety, and a lot of other things, but most of these uses are not backed by good scientific evidence. There are also no good reasons to use ashwagandha to treat COVID-19.
Don't mix up Physalis alkekengi with ashwagandha. Both of these are called winter cherries. Also, ashwagandha is not the same as American ginseng, Panax ginseng, or eleuthero.
In the past, the roots of Ashwagandha have been used to treat arthritis, constipation, insomnia, skin conditions, stress, gastrointestinal problems, diabetes, nervous breakdowns, fevers, snake bites, memory loss, and many other conditions. People have used the leaves, seeds, and even the fruits to treat a variety of health problems. Let's take a look at them one at a time.
◉ May help reduce stress and anxiety - Ashwagandha is called an adaptogen because it helps the body deal with stress. It can make the brain work better and help with anxiety and depression. Several controlled studies with real people have shown that this herb can help people with stress and anxiety disorders feel better. In a 60-day study with people who had chronic stress, those who took ashwagandha supplements had less anxiety and insomnia on average by 69%, while those who took a placebo had less anxiety and insomnia by 11%.
If you feel stressed out in your everyday life, you can massage your body with a traditional Ayurvedic oil that has Ashwagandha as one of the main ingredients. Sahastrayogam, an old Ayurvedic text, says that Ayurvedic Sugandhadi Oil is one of the things that can help with stress, fatigue, tension, and body aches.
◉ Lowers Blood Sugar and Fat - A few small clinical studies have shown that ashwagandha can help lower blood sugar and triglycerides (the most common type of fat in the blood). In one study, the effects of ashwagandha on lowering blood sugar were compared to those of medicines used to treat type 2 diabetes.
◉ Improves Sexual Function in Women - At least one clinical study shows that ashwagandha can help women who are having problems with their sexual health. Self-reports from the participants showed that when ashwagandha was given, there were big improvements in arousal, lubrication, orgasm, and satisfaction. It also made a big difference in how many successful sexual encounters they had and how much stress they felt about their sexuality and sex lives.
◉ Sharpens Focus and Memory - Ashwagandha might help improve thinking, memory, and the ability to do what you are told with your body. Small studies have shown that, compared to a placebo, ashwagandha makes people react much faster on cognitive and psychomotor tests (which measure the ability to respond to instructions and perform an indicated action).
In fact, one study found that ashwagandha made a big difference in how long people could pay attention and how well they could remember things right away and in general.
