Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is often compared to Asian ginseng. It is
widely used in modern Western herbalism as an adaptogen - a substance that can
help our bodies healthfully adapt to physiological and psychological stress,
resistance to stressors.
Planetary Formulas offers you ashwagandha in a Full Spectrum tablet, formulated

O.M.D., an internationally recognized authority on the world’s herbal
traditions. Michael was the first to introduce Ayurvedic products to the
American health food industry in the early 1970’s.
A History of Traditional Use
Ashwagandha has been used throughout India for thousands of years as a
rejuvenating tonifier (“rasayana” in Ayurvedic herbalism), and has been included
in the writings of many scholars. It was widely used to support vitality in
people of all ages, including children, and to enhance reproductive function in
both men and women.
In modern times, ashwagandha has been researched for its adaptogenic properties.
Adaptogens are defined as substances that enhance general adaptive response.
These botanicals are increasingly important in today’s society, where high
stress levels negatively impact many different body systems. Many health
practitioners believe adaptogens are just as important to our health as
better-known nutrients and botanicals, such as antioxidants. Research suggests
the mechanism of action of adaptogens may include modulation of the
pituitary-hypothalamus-adrenal gland axis. They increase resistance against
external stressors, have a balancing effect and stabilize normal body functions.
Ashwagandha: Powerful Adaptogen
Ashwagandha has been shown to increase stress resistance, improve memory-related
performance, and protect against stress induced responses such as anxiety, and
physiological imbalances, according to numerous animal studies and several human
studies. Well-controlled clinical studies are needed to further confirm
ashwagandha’s benefits for humans. The key constituents of ashwagandha are
alkaloids and a group of steroidal lactones known as withanolides.
