Description of Ashwagandha Lemon Flavor Liquid Extract 2 fl oz, Planetary Herbals
Ashwagandha Liquid Herbal Extract, Lemon Flavored
Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is one of the most highly respected adaptogenic
tonifiers of the 5,000-year-old Ayurvedic herbal tradition of India. Adaptogens
are a class of substances said to help the body adapt to physiological and psychological
stresses and changes. In this regard, ashwagandha is often compared with Asian
Panax Ginseng. Planetary Formulas formulator Michael Tierra, L.Ac., was instrumental
in bringing this key botanical to the United States.
Adaptogenic Effects of Ashwagandha
In modern times, ashwagandha has been researched for its adaptogenic properties.
Adaptogens are defined as substances that enhance general adaptive response.
These botanicals are increasingly important in today's society, where high stress
levels negatively impact many different body systems. Many health practitioners
believe adaptogens are just as important to our health as better-known nutrients
and botanicals, such as antioxidants.
Research suggests the mechanism of action of adaptogens may include modulation
of the pituitary-hypothalamus-adrenal gland axis. They increase resistance against
external stressors, have a balancing effect and stabilize normal body functions.
Ashwagandha: Powerful Adaptogen
Ashwagandha has been shown to increase stress resistance, improve memory-related
performance, and protect against stressinduced responses such as anxiety, and
physiological imbalances, according to numerous animal studies and several human
studies. Well-controlled clinical studies are needed to further confirm ashwagandha's
benefits for humans. The key constituents of ashwagandha are alkaloids and a
group of steroidal lactones known as withanolides.
