Biotics Research Bio-Ashwagandha 60 caps
Biotics Research's Bio-Ashwagandha's primary active components are mild acting calming alkaloids. These steroidal lactones provide significant adaptogenic effects. Some of these lactones (withanolides) have been reported to be structurally similar to ginsenosides from ginseng, and are used to provide support for healthy adrenal, cognitive and immune system function, as well as providing relief for menstrual discomfort.
Withania somnifera, commonly known as Ashwagandha is a small evergreen shrub found in India, the Middle East, and in parts of Africa. It is a plant in the Solanaceae or nightshade family, and is recognized for its adaptogenic properties, noted as “something that helps one adapt to stressful situations”. Among Ashwagandha’s primary active components are mild‑acting calming alkaloids. These lactones called glycowithanolides, provide significant supportive health benefits. Some of the withanolides have been reported to be structurally similar to ginsenosides from ginseng, and are used to provide support for healthy adrenal, cognitive and immune system function, as well as to provide relief for menstrual discomfort.
Traditionally viewed as a rejuvenative tonic, research in animal models suggests that Ashwaganda has the ability to suppress stress-induced increases in the dopamine receptors in the brain.
The modern research on Ashwaganda has focused on its ability to assist with issues correlated to healthy aging, such as providing support for normal healthy cholesterol, blood sugar levels, and immune functions. Traditionally viewed as a rejuvenative tonic, Ashwagandha has soothing effects. It also appears to reduce stress-induced increased of plasma corticosterone, blood urea nitrogen, and blood lactic acid. It is also noted to possess benefits for both the muscles and the bone marrow.
