Anti-Stress & Energy. Additive Free. USDA Organic. 2.96 mg withanolides. Researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center have studied Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera). They found that extracts of the shrub had activity that was similar to GABA which could explain why the plant is effective in reducing anxiety. Scholars from the University of Leipzig Germany looked at the effects of Ashwagandha on the brain. The research showed Ashwagandha led to more acetylcholine receptor activity. The scholars concluded that the increase of activity in that particular neurotransmitter could account for the increase in cognitive ability and memory attributed to Ashwagandha. Scholars at Banaras Hindu University Varanasi India conducted research which proves many of the elements of Ashwagandha are antioxidants. The researchers found that Ashwagandha led to larger amounts of three different natural antioxidants: superoxide dismutase catalase and glutathione peroxidase. The antioxidant effect of active principles of Ashwagandha may explain the anti-stress cognition-facilitating and anti-aging effects produced in clinical situations. Key Benefits.

Review 1 for Himalaya Herbal Healthcare Ashwagandha -- 60 Caplets
"I had accidently bought this bottle thinking it was something else. When I realized my mistake it sat in my vitamin cabinet for a while until a friend recommended I start taking Ashwaganda. I had to play with my dosage but after I got some in my system I realized I was calmer and not as nervous about things. I truly believe in this product and have recommended it to other friends."

"The reason I recommend this brand of ashwagandha is because it is often hard to find this herb in a non-standardized supplement. I do not think that standardized preparations are the best way to take herbs, as I prefer to use them in their non-doctored state with their own micronutrients."
