• Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha is best known to help counteract the effects of occasional physical and mental stress, as well as support cognition and memory function.

Ashwagandha (Withania  somnifera) is  an  adaptogenic  herb  that  belongs  to  the  pepper family. It has an extensive, 4,000-year history of traditional use and is one of the most revered and widely used Ayurvedic herbs. It's adaptogenic properties provide multi-functional support for promoting general mental and physical wellness, including support for occasional  stress,  joints,  memory,  immune function, and healthy lipid and glucose metabolism.

Withanolides  are  key  constituents  of  this  herb  and  play  an important role in ashwagandha's overall ability to promote physical and mental health. In animal studies, ashwagandha has been shown to support the activity of lymphocytes and macrophages, moderate occasional stress, enhance memory and cognitive function, provide neuroprotection by scavenging free radicals, and support thyroid function.

A small human clinical trial demonstrated the ability of ashwagandha to support healthy glucose and lipid metabolism. In a double blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial involving 42  volunteers, a formulation including ashwagandha indicated its potential to help promote joint comfort, which may involve modulation of cyclooxygenase enzyme activity. Other research suggests that it may promote relaxation and maintain healthy cortisol and C-reactive protein levels.
