Dr. Nick Notes
Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is a relatively new herb for me to add into my botanical repertoire. Ashwagandha (aka Indian Ginseng) has thousands of years of usage in Ayruvedic and TCM with traditional usage as an adaptogen. Commonly used for stress, immune modulation & reducing inflammation, typically the roots are used as the medicinal component of the Withania plant.
There’s a rich body of scientific literature about the effects of Ashwagandha though double-blind research in humans is lacking. One review did a great job of summarizing the literature’s findings: Ashwagandha possesses anti-inflammatory, antitumor, antistress, antioxidant, immunomodulatory, hemopoietic, and rejuvenating properties. Seems like much of the mechanism of action of the withanolides and other constituents is still not well innerstood by science. When I dove in a bit deeper into the literature, I see that many of the studies are animal studies and some of the human subject studies contain combinations of herbs.
Considering this plant has been used for thousands of years, I recognize this plant has time-tested therapeutic potentials and has a notable safety profile. Seems like a premium quality benefit of Ashwagandha comes from the ability to reduce stress - a great gift in the modern world! Ashwagandha has been used traditionally used to boost immunity, act as an anti-infective herb, strengthen a person’s resilience and calm the nervous system.
There have been suggestions in the literature of balancing blood sugar levels, improving athletic performance, improved sleep quality, reducing cholesterol levels and enhanced sexual function in healthy women ~ Some evidence suggests that Ashwagandha can stimulate thyroid hormone production - for those with hypothyroidism, this might be beneficial. For others, be aware this relationship occurs in case elevated thyroid function / biomarkers ever present.

I used this tincture for 2 weeks straight and followed the EOW’s suggestion for usage, 5 days on and 2 days off, my results were fantastic! It perked me right up on the days when I woke up not feeling so rested. I found it to give me a nice pick me up when I would use it in the mornings, I used it before mediation as well and found the spirit of the plant to be quite supportive and motivating, a strong feminine presence that gives you the encouragement and gentle push to take on anything and everything in your path. I also have tried using it at night and found it to promote deep restful sleep. I am now currently using it on an as needed basis and it gives me exactly what I need every time. Ashwagandha is definitely a very powerful adaptogen! Thanks Docta!

The best ashwaghanda out there for real. This tincture has an amazing nutty caramel like flavor. I take it after a long day of working from home to help disconnect from the work day and ease into the night. Relaxation at its best.
