What is Metabolics Ashwagandha?
Ashwagandha, or Withania somnifera (also known as winter cherry) is a small shrub with yellow flowers found in the drier parts of sub-tropical India and North Africa. In Sanskrit, the language of ancient India, Ashwagandha means ‘smell of a horse’ (due to its unique smell) which was interpreted as a herb that could impart the vigour and strength of a horse.
Extracts obtained from the plant’s roots contain many health benefits due to the presence of a variety of phytochemicals, the major active ingredient being the Withanolides.
What is Metabolics Ashwagandha for?
Ashwagandha is used as a general tonic to help maintain optimal stamina, feelings of energy and vitality, an adaptogen and as an antioxidant. Adaptogens are non-toxic plants that help support the body’s resistance to stress, whether it be physical, chemical, or biological. Ashwagandha is also reported to help maintain mental balance and supports learning, memory and recall.
Who is Metabolics Ashwagandha for?
If you require nutritional support for your overall wellbeing, stress relief and to increase your energy levels, Ashwagandha is considered an effective general tonic.
It also supports your learning, memory and recall; it is thought to be particularly useful in supporting mental function in the elderly.
Other perceived health benefits include the nutritional support of the onset of sleep and the maintenance of normal skin.
Studies suggest that Ashwagandha may help lower cortisol levels (the hormone released in stressful situations) in chronically stressed individuals. If you are constantly stressed, this can lead to a variety of other health concerns such as depression, high blood sugar levels and suppressed immunity amongst others.
