    How Ashwaghanda Works

                     People who think that holistic medicine is bogus folk lore are simply not educated on the matter. The truth is even the big pharmaceutical companies know this. There is a branch of chemistry called Phytochemistry. This class of chemistry literally researchers complex classes of phytochemicals that plants produce in accordance to the schematics programmed into their DNA(Deoxyribonucleic acid). They are often referred to as constituents.


    While the plant contains a wide range of complex organic chemical constituents, the main active ingredients are thought to be specific alkaloids and steroidal lactones. These include tropine and cuscohygrine. Tropine is found in belladonna, Datura stramonium, and Hyoscyamus niger (henbane) too. Because of this, great caution should be taken when using this plant, and any of its relatives.

    Constituents


    Anahygrine, chlorogenic acid (leaf), beta-sisterol, cysteine (berries), cuscohygrine, pseudotropine, iron, scopoletin, somniferinine, somniferiene, tropanol, withanine, withaferin A ( hints the scientific name withania ), withananine, withanolides, A-Y, Anaferine.

    Medicinal use


                     This plant is of tremendous value in Ayurvedic medicine. It's prized for its anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, anti-stress, antioxidant, mind-boosting, immune boosting and general rejuvenating abilities. It's used for arthritis, anxiety, insomnia, tumors, tuberculosis, asthma, leukemia, bronchitis, backaches, fibromyalgia, menstrual problems, hiccups, and chronic liver disease.

    Ashwaganhda is well known as an adatogen. Adaptogens are well known for their ability to assist the body in coping with stress. Sense stress is harmful to the brain and body, this may be the secret to its nootropic effects. Nootropics are plants or substances that improve mental cognition and performance. It's one of a large number of herbs used today as a natural nootropic.

    Preparation

                     Ashwaghanda roots, leaves, and berries are all used for different things. It's been observed that the root can be used to be fight against aging. It probably does this using its adaptogenic properties which help the body reduce stress and cortisol. The root shows promise in sexual potency ( aphrodisiac properties ), memory, mood, and fertility.

    Roots are almost always made into decoctions in herbal medicine. A decoction is made by boiling the root material for an extended period of time. This helps to release plant oils and other essential phytochemicals. It's very important that the roots are crushed or powdered to help with the extraction process. Barks are made using the same preparation method. Both can be made into a tincture as well though. I'll talk more about tinctures below.

    Ashwaghanda leaves are generally made into a tea or tincture. They are typically combined with the roots. Both seem to have the same type of properties for the most part. The chemical constituents in the leaves and roots are slightly different as seen above. Different parts of the plant contain different concentrations of certain alkaloids.

    Is it possible that Ashwaghanda roots may contain beneficial microbes that aid the human microbiome? If you're unfamiliar with the human microbiome, then I suggest this video by the University Of California TV. The human microbiome is an ecosystem of beneficial bacteria that mostly reside in our gut. Lack of certain bacteria have been linked to certain medical conditions and ailments.

    Tinctures are made by soaking the plant material in high proof liquor like everclear for a minimum of one month. From there, the resulting extract can be filtered through a cheese cloth and stored in glass tincture bottles with droppers. Ashwaghanda contains a lot of phytochemical constituents. This method will ensure that you capture and preserve the most alkaloids possible.

    Note: The educational institutions claim that Wikipedia is not a scholarly source. The truth is that "teaching" is truly a paradox. Anyone can check the sources cited on their website and see that 99% of them are from academic journals, including .edu/gov domains. The sad part is that students believe this without question. I personally believe that it's an attempt to censor the flow of information from the mainstream public. Facts are for everyone and can benefit us all.
