What is Swanson Superior Herbs Ashwagandha Extract?

Nothing in life worth getting comes easy. We’ve all applied this popular mantra at some stage when things have got tough. It helps us to remind ourselves that in life, there are no free passes. We get out what we put in and often those things that we really want, mean pushing through the glass ceiling and reaching out with two hands.

Of course, this a two sided coin. Working too hard and stressing about things we’ll never achieve can have an equally detrimental effect on not only our mood and attitude but also our actual cognitive process. That’s right, stress is more than just an emotion, it also stops our brains from functioning properly. We lose sleep, worry too much and begin to lose assets like memory and higher thinking.

There was a time when Ashwagandha Extract was one of those things in life that would have seemed too much trouble to bother with. From the Solanaceae (nightshade) family. This plant shares family ties with some of nature’s more fearsome killers - it is even known as ‘poison gooseberry’ in some parts of the world. Even the root, the part of the plant that we use to make the extract, has a nasty odour. The name Ashwagandha actually means ‘horse’s smell’ in sanskrit.

But fear not, Swanson Superior Herbs Ashwagandha Extract embraces the ancient medical doctrines of Ayurveda, a form of Indian traditional medicine that used the Ashwagandha root for a great many uses and to incredible effect too.

What is Swanson Superior Herbs Ashwagandha Extract used for?

Native to the drier regions of India, Swanson Superior Herbs Ashwagandha Extract has a range of historical uses and its Latin name Withania somnifera actually means ‘sleep bearing’, referring to its use as an adaptogen. So popular in fact is the remedy that India still cultivates approximately 9,000 tons of it annually.

  • Contains Withanolides and Withaferin, chemicals which have antioxidant use.
  • An adaptogen - helps you to relax, sleep and even think better
  • Even helps combat fatigue brought on by overworking and age

In Ayurveda, Ashwagandha is a potent 'rasayana' herb. In other words, it promotes longevity and is considered a great rejuvenator. Swanson Superior Herbs Ashwagandha Extract is also considered to be 'Medhya Rasayana', meaning that it can revitalise the three ayurvedic aspects of the mind - Memory, Comprehension and Recollection.
