ORIGIN

Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera (L.) Dunal) belongs to the Solanaceae family, is native to India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka and is distributed in North Africa, the Middle East and India. It is a perennial plant that can reach 1.5 m high, its flowers are tiny and its roots are tuberous (1). It has a characteristic odor reminiscent of the horse, in fact its name in Sanskrit (Aswha) means horse, which would mean that its consumption brings the strength of this animal (2).

HISTORY

Ashwagandha has been used for over 3000 years in Ayurveda medicine and is one of the most important plants used as Rasayana, a herbal preparation which increases the vigor, longevity and mental and physical health. Within this mix of plants, ashwagandha is considered one of the most important and is known as Rasayana Sattvic Kapha (2).

In addition, the root of ashwagandha appears in more than 2000 preparations in Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani medicine to treat various physiological disorders (3).

COMPOSITION

Ashwagandha contains amino acids, starch, alkaloids (tropine, pseudotropine, anaferine, withanina, somniferina, somnina ...) and steroid lactones (Withanolides) (1,4), the latter bioactive compounds are the main responsible for the ashwagandha properties.

STUDIES

Ashwagandha is one of the most important plants in Ayurveda medicine and is known as Indian ginseng (6). Thus we have studied their properties as adaptogenic herb and it has been observed that ashwagandha helps protect against different stressors (4) decreases cortisol levels in people undergoing chronic stress (7) and has anxiolytic and antidepressant effect (2).

Moreover, ashwagandha is advised in cases of weakness and fatigue. A study in which an extract of Withania somnifera was given to individuals aged between 18 and 25 years, concluded that those who had consumed ashwagandha extract for 8 weeks improved their physical performance and strength (8). Furthermore, another study found a faster muscle recovery and increased strength in those participants under endurance training who had consumed ashwagandha for two months (9).

In relation to its aphrodisiac properties, a pilot study of women found that ashwagandha root extract may be effective for the treatment of female sexual dysfunction (7). In addition, it has been associated the adaptogen effect of ashwagandha with its ability to help combat stress-induced male infertility. This effect would be related to the compounds present in the root such as alkaloids, amino acids and agonists in the neurotransmitters GABA* and serotonin (10).

Finally, ashwagandha is also indicated for insomnia due to its effect on the GABAergic system (11).

* GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is an inhibitory neurotransmitter involved in sleep regulation.
