Full Spectrum™ Ashwagandha
high stress levels of our society have a profound impact on well-being,
impacting our bodies and health in ways that are continually being
revealed by new research. Planetary Herbals can help you address this
modern problem with one of the most highly respected botanicals in the
5,000- year-old Ayurvedic herbal tradition. Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)
is often compared to Asian ginseng. It is widely used in modern Western
herbalism as an adaptogen - a substance that can help our bodies
healthfully adapt to physiological and psychological stress, thus
increasing resistance to stressors.
Planetary Herbals offers
you ashwagandha in a Full Spectrum tablet, formulated to capture all the
plant's most valuable compounds, and a liquid extract. Both were
selected by licensed acupuncturist and clinical herbalist Michael
Tierra, L.Ac., O.M.D., an internationally recognized authority on the
world's herbal traditions. Michael was the first to introduce Ayurvedic
products to the American health food industry in the early 1970's.
A History of Traditional Use
has been used throughout India for thousands of years as a rejuvenating
tonifier ("rasayana" in Ayurvedic herbalism), and has been included in
the writings of many scholars. It was widely used to support vitality in
people of all ages, including children, and to enhance reproductive
function in both men and women.
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
Ashwagandha: Powerful Adaptogen
has been shown to increase stress resistance, improve memory-related
performance, and protect against stress induced 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.
