Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is another Ayurvedic herb which has shown to have strong positive effects on anxiety, stress, and cortisol. Typically sourced from countries such as India, Ashwagandha is extracted from either the roots or leaves of the plant. Ashwagandha root extract contains Withanolides, while the leaves contain a compound known as Withaferin-A.
Withanolides are the active, researched ingredients within the extract, so it is important to choose a standardized root extract.
As an adaptogen, Ashwagandha is used primarily for its ability to prevent anxiety. There is also research supporting Ashwagandha for reducing cortisol concentrations and the effects of stress on the body and mind.
As a nootropic, Ashwagandha can help with the formation of memories.
