Ashwagandha is regarded as an adaptogen (a type of herb said to strengthen your resistance to stress while enhancing your energy).
Often used to boost the immune system after an illness, ashwagandha is also included in formulations that aim to treat conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, pain, fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders, skin infections, cerebellar ataxia, diabetes, high cholesterol, and Parkinson's disease.
Research on ashwagandha is limited, but several studies have shown that the herb may be useful in addressing the following health problems:
For a 2008 study, scientists tested ashwagandha's effects on human cartilage and found that the herb may help protect against inflammation and cartilage damage associated with osteoarthritis. In another preliminary study, people with joint deformity, pain, swelling, and stiffness were given a supplement containing ashwagandha, guggul, turmeric, and a zinc complex. Although pain was reduced, there were no changes shown on radiological examination.
In an animal-based study published in 2000, researchers found that ashwagandha had an anti-anxiety effect similar to that of lorazepam (a medication used to treat anxiety disorders). The herb also appeared to ease depression.
3) Type 2 Diabetes
Ashwagandha may help normalize high blood sugar and improve insulin sensitivity, according to preliminary, animal-based research published in 2008. Learn about other remedies for diabetes.
In a 2003 study, tests on human tumor cell lines revealed that ashwagandha may slow the growth of lung, breast, and colon cancer cells.
Published in 2007, another study on human cells shows that ashwagandha may inhibit tumor growth without harming normal cells.
