From Newwire.net — August 24, 2017) Orlando, FL — Many clinicians and researchers are studying the multiple therapeutic effects of Ashwagandha. This Ayurvedic herb has been used for thousands of years for a range of medicinal purposes, and today, it is widely consumed by many people from around the world.
More than 50 studies reveal Ashwagandha’s healing potentials. It has been found to fight conditions like diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, toxicity, stress, skin cancer, Parkinson’s, liver toxicity, tuberculosis, and many others.
One of the studies was conducted in the Asha Hospital Hyberbad, which involved 64 individuals suffering from chronic stress. The researchers found that the use of ashwagandha for two months has decreased stress by 44 percent, whereas depression and anxiety were reduced by 72 percent.
In another study from Tokyo University of Technology, it was found that ashwagandha has an ability to slow down the melanocyte stem cell phosphorylation process. The findings of the study suggest that Ashwagandha has a potential to block skin cancer.
In the research conducted by the researchers from Jamia Hamdard University’s Pharmacy Faculty, it was discovered that ashwagandha was able to reduce oxidative stress linked with type 2 diabetes.
It is important to understand that high levels of oxidative stress have been linked to the onset of various diseases and disorders. This herb does not cause side effects, and could potentially be used for preventive health purposes.

So you see there many proven studies that share the benefits of Ashwagandha. The good news is that it is less expensive than Ginseng and less pungent. My favorite brew is some Ashwagandha mixed with raw honey and frothed almond milk- add some other ingredients such as Ginseng or Shatavari for perfect afternoon tonic.
