Himalaya Ashwagandha is a preparation based on an extract from ashwagandha, which is a medicinal plant that has been valued for hundreds of years. It has toning, improving the condition of the circulatory system and stimulating properties, and above all helps to cope with stress, nervousness and anxiety. As a strong adaptogen, it prepares the body for increased physical and mental effort.

Ashwagandha, otherwise known as withania somnifera, is a plant native to India, which has been used for many centuries in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. It is an Indian variety of ginseng. The most active substances are found in its root, but fruit is also used for the treatment. It is noteworthy that supplements based on the ashwagandha extract are natural and tested over many years and in different cases, which is why they can certainly be considered safe products.

Ashwagandha as an adaptogen
Adaptogen is defined as a substance that adapt the body to changing conditions. As such, ashwagandha helps increase immunity and prevent various types of infections. It has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, and also shows some anticancer potential. It stimulates not only the immune but also the nervous system.

In this way, it facilitates coping with stress and improves cognitive abilities and effectiveness of memorizing the information. That results in improved well being and emotional balance. Ashwagandha is also a useful supplement in the period of strenuous physical activity, for instance during increasing the training loads or intensive preparation for the competition.

Anti-stress and anti-depressant agent
The ashwagandha root has a stabilizing effect within the central nervous system, and also has some ability to accelerate the recovery of damaged nerve cells. On one hand, it introduces them into a state of arousal similar to that after taking caffeine. A sensitivity to various types of stimuli increases then. On the other hand, it has a calming effect on the mind, thanks to which the effect of arousal does not cause nervousness and irritability. This results in an increased mental and physical efficiency. In such situation, the body is prepared for greater stress and the presence of stressors.

In addition, research indicates that the use of ashwagandha root contributes to the reduction of cortisol, which is the cause of increased nervousness and fatigue. Instead, it sensitizes serotonin receptors, which intensifies the effect of this hormone on the nervous system. Thanks to this, it contributes to the improvement of well-being, and also facilitates falling asleep and strengthens the regenerative effect of sleep. Researchers also indicate that regular using ashwagandha roots helps to combat the depression. Some scientists claim that it may be a cure for more serious mental disorders, such as schizophrenia or Alzheimer's disease, but the studies have not provided sufficient evidence to be able to conclude this.

Protection against cancer
Thanks to the presence of withanolides, Ashwagandha exhibits proven anticancer properties. Taking it can prevent breast, colon, lung and pancreatic cancer. Importantly, it does not have a negative impact on healthy cells. In addition, some studies suggest that ashwagandha extracts may prevent neutropenia associated with chemotherapy. It is also a factor that reduces oxidative stress and allows you to get rid of excess free radicals. It is believed to have the ability to delay aging processes.

Ashwagandha as a pre-workout and pro-health supplement
Thanks to its stimulating properties, Ashwagandha prepares the body for strenuous exertion – exercise capacity is increased, which can result in better results at the gym, treadmill or pitch. It also contributes to the acceleration of recovery processes.

In addition, ashwagandha root extract helps to maintain the correct lipid profile and reduce the level of ‘bad’ cholesterol. It positively affects the circulatory system and the heart, thus lowering the risk of diseases such as atherosclerosis or coronary heart disease. It also has a positive effect on the glucose and insulin metabolism. What is interesting for men is that ashwagandha is a factor that improves semen quality (increases sperm motility) and can be helpful in fertility problems.

In summary, Himalaya Ashvagandha is a supplement with a wide range of pro-health and preventive use. It strengthens the immune system and circulatory system and stimulates the nervous system. It protects against the negative effects of stress, increases the concentration and efficiency of the body, and in men it contributes to the improvement of procreative functions.
