More information about the herbs and spices
Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is a herb that is native to India and North Africa. The famous herb has been used in ayurvedic and indigenous medicine for a long time. The term Ashwagandha comes from Sanskrit and translates to "smell of a horse". The name describes the characteristic odour and the strength and vitality that one acquires upon utilising the herb.
The roots of this famous herb have been used on their own or with other plants to improve human health. It contains various active compounds including alkaloids, steroidal lactones and saponins. The plant has different benefits, including the following:
- Nervous system tonic
Adaptogens help the body to adapt or respond to stressful and demanding situations. In stressful situations, the human body produces a hormone called cortisol, also known as "the stress hormone" hormone. The release of cortisol increases sugars (glucose) in the bloodstream; this enhances the brain's use of glucose and increases the availability of molecules that repair tissues. The hormone naturally rises in the morning and lowers in the evening, allowing the body to sleep and rest.
In modern days, however, humans are consistently subjected to stressful conditions, and this leads to long term release of cortisol. Consistently high cortisol levels disturb the nervous system and cause imbalances in the body. The imbalance results in the suppression of the immune system, sleep reduction, blood sugar level increases and other various negative effects on the body. Researchers have found that Ashwagandha promotes healthy cortisol levels. It is enhancing the healthy functioning of the body. Furthermore, Ashwagandha also improves mood.
- Regulation of blood sugar
The herb restores balance to blood sugar levels. It enhances the secretion of insulin and improves insulin sensitivity in muscle cells.
- immune system booster
