A number of studies have shown significant increases in white blood cell counts and other measures of strengthened immunity in rodents given ashwagandha or certain chemicals extracted from the herb. Ashwagandha may also have a mild sedative effect on the central nervous system and in animal studies it has been shown to be a muscle relaxant. It is commonly used to increase vitality, and for pain management for arthritic conditions particularly when recovering from chronic illnesses. Ashwagandha may also help regulate blood sugar which aids in suppressing sugar cravings. Ashwagandha seems to show positive effects on the endocrine, cardio, and central nervous systems. It is one herb that could help your body produce it's own thyroid hormones. Preliminary studies indicate that the herb helps to reduce the negative effects of stress, slow tumor growth, treat anxiety, insomnia, and reduce cholesterol in addition to increasing sexual performance. Because ashwagandha has traditionally been used to treat various diseases associated with nerve tissue damage related to the destructive molecules known as free radicals, some researchers have specvulated that the herb may have antioxidant properties.
