Benefits of Steadfast Nutrition’s Ashwagandha
1.Improves Sleep Quality
Sleep is critical for mental health and physical performance- ashwagandha root extract has natural sleep-inducing potential, which is well tolerated and improves sleep quality. A prospective, randomised, double blind, placebo controlled study conducted on sleep-challenged subjects demonstrated supplementation of ashwagandha root extract for 10 weeks improved sleep quality, sleep efficiency, mental alertness and quality of life and reduced anxiety.
2. Reduces Stress and Anxiety
Ashwagandha, an Ayurvedic adaptogen, has a remarkable impact on stress- several studies suggest ashwagandha safely and effectively improves resistance towards stress, improving quality of life and preventing the onset of several life-threatening diseases.
3. Boosts Memory and Cognition
Ashwagandha helps improve memory, cognition and the ability to perform motor functions. Various studies support its effectiveness in improving immediate and overall memory, executive functions, attention and information-processing speed. Studies suggest ashwagandha is effective for people with mild cognitive impairment caused by ageing.
4. Increases Muscles Strength and Recovery
Several studies support ashwagandha’s role in improving muscle strength and size. It is proven to increase speed, strength and muscle power. A 2016 research study published in the journal of International Society of Sports Nutrition found supplementation with ashwagandha significantly increases muscle mass and strength and should be combined with a resistance training programme.
5. Supports Heart Health
Ashwagandha enhances cardio-respiratory endurance and quality of life in healthy adults, including athletes, by reducing cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the bloodstream. An analysis of a few studies found taking ashwagandha significantly enhanced maximum oxygen consumption (VO2 max) in healthy adults and athletes. Vital oxygen capacity, which measures heart and lung fitness, is the maximum amount of oxygen an individual can utilise during intense activities. Having maximum optimal oxygen capacity is vital for athletes and non-athletes- low VO2 max is associated with increased mortality risk; higher VO2 max is associated with a lower risk of heart disease.
6. Boosts Testosterone levels
Ashwagandha has shown promising results in improving testosterone and hormonal balance. Studies show it increases the levels of Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), a pre-hormone converted to testosterone in the human body.
Studies also support that taking a supplement of ashwagandha root extract twice a day improved muscle strength, size, and recovery by boosting testosterone levels, which also improves infertility in men, like it may improve the count, motility, and quality of semen. Improved quality of semen with stress -related infertility issues is also been supported by studies on ashwagandha.
Though the proper mechanism behind this is unknown, studies support ashwagandha’s role as adaptogen and anti-stress herb that provides antioxidant support to testicles to perform its action- producing testosterone.
7. Reduces Inflammation
Ashwagandha is an effective anti-inflammatory agent. Withanolides in ashwagandha posses strong anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, acting as a pain reliever and preventing pain signals from traveling along the central nervous system. Ashwagandha helps reduce inflammation caused by muscle and joint breakdown and quickens recovery. It also helps relieve arthritis pain.
8. Helps manage diabetes
Research suggests ashwagandha extract helps bring diabetes under control as it stimulates the production of insulin and reduces sugar levels in the blood. A research study published in the International Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences indicates that the extract of withania somnifera (Ashwagandha) has good antidiabetic potential since the crude extract has a synergistic effect on glucose uptake in the presence of insulin.
