Asvagandha is one of the best known medicinal herbs, said to be in use for thousands of years in India. The roots of this shrub Withania somnifera consist primarily of compounds known as withanolides, which account for its extraordinary medicinal properties. Much of Ashwaganda's pharmacological activity has been attributed to two main withanolides, withaferin A, D and withanolide G. In the traditional system of medicine Ayurveda, this plant is claimed to have potent aphrodisiac rejuvenative and life prolonging properties.
Ashwagandha is also considered to be an adaptogen, facilitating the ability to withstand stressors, and has antioxidant properties as well. Other studies have shown ashwagandha to have an immunostimulatory effect.
Withania is shown to reverse a number of adverse physiologic conditions including cognitive deficit, immunosuppression, sexual dysfunction, gastric ulceration, irregularities in glucose homeostasis, and changes in plasma corticosterone levels, resulting from chronic stress (CS). Aswagandha improves sperm count and quality.
