The Vedas, which originated in ancient India around 6000 BC, are regarded as the foundational texts of Hinduism, with the Sanskrit term "Veda" translating to "Knowledge." There are four Vedas, including the Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Atharva Veda, and Yajur Veda, each containing valuable information that has influenced modern-day science. For instance, Ayurveda, meaning "Knowledge of life," is a component of the Atharva Veda and offers lifestyle interventions and natural therapies to address the imbalances in a person's consciousness, which can lead to disease. By promoting harmony between the body, mind, spirit, and environment, Ayurveda is a holistic approach to health and wellness.
India has been historically recognized as a hub of innovative inventions. Many modern-day scientific and technological advancements have been inspired by the Vedic scriptures, which have greatly influenced the evolution of medicine. In particular, Ayurveda, which emphasizes healing and preventing numerous diseases - some of which even modern medical science doesn't cover - is gaining popularity.
As history repeats itself, there is a growing trend toward utilizing natural therapies to promote a healthy balance between the body and mind. People are increasingly putting their faith in natural healing approaches using organic products.
At present, we firmly believe that nature holds the solution to many issues, including mental health. Through Ayurveda, we have discovered effective methods for addressing various mental health concerns.
Ashwagandha, a popular herb in Ayurvedic medicine, has gained immense popularity due to its adaptogenic properties. This ancient power plant, scientifically known as Withania somnifera and commonly referred to as Indian Ginseng or Winter Cherry, belongs to the Solanaceae family and is found in India, the Middle East, and parts of Africa. Although it may not look like much, this small shrub is believed to offer a number of health benefits.
While Ashwagandha is a new supplement to the western world, its use in traditional Ayurvedic medicine dates back over a thousand years. The herb is so named due to the smell of horse that its fresh roots emit and the belief that it provides the strength and vitality of a horse.
This has earned Ashwagandha the moniker of a “royal herb” for its rejuvenating effects on the human body.
Recent research has shown that not only the roots but also the aerial parts of the plant have great benefits. Ashwagandha is an adaptogen that can bring the body back into balance by improving adrenal and brain health. Its unique set of compounds called Alkaloids makes it perfect for someone who needs natural support for stress, anxiety, or sleep troubles. With numerous health benefits, Ashwagandha is truly one of the most diverse health powerhouses on the planet.
While there are several benefits that people talk about, we just chose 7 benefits of the Ashwagandha Extract that Ayurvedic texts repeatedly talk about. These 7 have been backed by scientific data.
1) Relieves stress and anxiety
2) Lowers blood sugar levels
3) Increases muscle and strength
4) Boosts testosterone
5) Sharpens memory and improves focus
6) Supports heart health
7) Lowers blood pressure
The popularity of Ashwagandha extract has led to manufacturers globally ramping up production and conducting clinical studies to prove its efficacy, which is the right approach. However, there is a problem with reinventing the wheel since Ashwagandha is already known to manage certain clinical indications. This lack of innovation in the process is changing the public perception of Ashwagandha as "A jack of all clinical indications and a master of none." Instead, Ashwagandha extracts should be optimized to address each clinical indication separately, as the herb has several benefits and is the king of Ayurveda.
Ashwagandha is a natural herb that contains chemicals known to reduce stress-related symptoms, calm the brain, and lower blood pressure. It has been traditionally used as an adaptogen for various stress-related conditions. However, no one has ever focused on optimizing the percentage of active compounds in Ashwagandha extract for mental health benefits.
