Details :

  • Ashwagandha is a plant. The root and berry are used to make medicine.
  • Ashwagandha has a lot of uses. But so far, there isn't enough information to judge whether it is effective for any of them.
  • Ashwagandha is used for arthritis, anxiety, bipolar disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), balance, obsessive-compulsive dirorder (OCD), trouble sleeping (insomnia), tumors, tuberculosis, asthma, a skin condition marked by white patchiness (leukoderma), bronchitis, backache, fibromyalgia, menstrual problems, hiccups, Parkinson's disease, and chronic liver disease. It is also used to reduce side effects of medications used to treat cancer and schizophrenia. Ashwagandha is used to reduce levels of fat and sugar in the blood.
  • Ashwagandha is also used as an "adaptogen" to help the body cope with daily stress, and as a general tonic.
  • Some people also use ashwagandha for improving thinking ability, decreasing pain and swelling (inflammation), and preventing the effects of aging. It is also used for fertility problems in men and women and also to increase sexual desire.
  • Ashwagandha is applied to the skin for treating wounds, backache, and one-sided paralysis (hemiplegia).
  • The name Ashwagandha is from the Sanskrit language and is a combination of the word ashva, meaning horse, and gandha, meaning smell. The root has a strong aroma that is described as "horse-like."
  • In Ayurvedic, Indian, and Unani medicine, ashwagandha is described as "Indian ginseng." Ashwagandha is also used in traditional African medicine for a variety of ailments.
  • Don't confuse ashwagandha with Physalis alkekengi. Both are known as winter cherry.


How does it work?

Uses & Effectiveness?
Possibly Effective for : Stress - Taking a specific ashwagandha root extract (KSM66, Ixoreal Biomed) 300 mg twice daily after food for 60 days appears to improve symptoms of stress.
Insufficient Evidence for :

  • Reducing side effects associated with medications called antipsychotics - Antipsychotics are used to treat schizophrenia but they can cause levels of fat and sugar in the blood to increase. Taking a specific ashwagandha extract (Cap Strelaxin, M/s Pharmanza Herbal Pvt. Ltd., Gujarat, India) 400 mg three times daily for one month might reduce levels of fat and sugar in the blood in people using these medications.
  • Anxiety - Some clinical research shows that taking ashwagandha can reduce some symptoms of anxiety or anxious mood.
  • Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) - Some clinical research shows that a combination herbal product containing ashwagandha may improve attention and impulse control in children with ADHD. The effect of ashwagandha alone is unclear.
  • Bipolar disorder  - Taking a specific ashwagandha extract (Sensoril, Natreon, Inc., New Bruswick, New Jersey) for 8 weeks might improve brain function in people being treated for bipolar disorder.
  • A brain condition called cerebellar ataxia - Preliminary research shows that ashwagandha in combination with an alternative form of medicine known as Ayurvedic therapy might improve balance in people with cerebellar ataxia.
  • Fatigue in people treated for cancer (chemotherapy) - Early research suggests taking a specific ashwagandha extract 2,000 mg (Himalaya Drug Co, New Delhi, India) during chemotherapy treatment might reduce feelings of tiredness.
  • Diabetes - There is some evidence that ashwagandha might reduce blood sugar levels in people with diabetes.
  • High cholesterol - There is some evidence that ashwagandha might reduce cholesterol levels in patients with high cholesterol.
  • Male infertility - Some preliminary clinical evidence suggests that ashwagandha might improve sperm quality, but not sperm count, in infertile men. It is not known if taking ashwagandha can actually improve fertility.
  • Osteoarthritis - Early research shows that ashwagandha taken along with a zinc complex, guggul, and turmeric might improve arthritis symptoms. The impact of ashwagandha alone is unclear.
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) - Early research shows that ashwagandha root extract might reduce symptoms of OCD when taken with prescribed medications for 6 weeks better than taking the prescribed medication alone.
  • Parkinson's disease - Preliminary research suggests that a combination of herbs including ashwagandha improves Parkinson's symptoms. The effect of ashwagandha alone in Parkinson's is unknown.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis - Early research shows that ashwagandha powder taken for 3 weeks followed by 4 weeks of sidh makardhwaj (a mixture of gold, mercury, and sulfur) slightly improves symptoms in some people with RA. The impact of ashwagandha alone in RA is unclear.
  • Increasing interest in sex - Early research shows that taking ashwagandha extract daily for 8 weeks along with receiving counseling increases interest in sex and sexual satisfaction in adult women with sexual dysfunction better than counseling alone.
  • Altering immune system function.
  • Fibromyalgia.
  • Inducing vomiting.
  • Liver problems.
  • Preventing the signs of aging.
  • Swelling (inflammation).
  • Tumors.
  • Tuberculosis.
  • Ulcerations.
  • Other conditions - More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of ashwagandha for these uses.
