What is ashwagandha?

As one of nine ingredients, ashwagandha plays an important role in our Brain Health Supplement. The herb has been used by humans as a treatment for centuries and is now becoming a more common ingredient in supplements. But what exactly is ashwagandha and how does it work?

What is ashwagandha?

Ashwagandha, often known as withania somnifera, is a herb that grows in parts of India, the Middle East and Africa. The herb has been used by humans for centuries to ease pain, treat inflammation and ease insomnia, especially in Ayurvedic medicine. While further scientific research still needs to be conducted on the evergreen herb, ashwagandha is often used as an adaptogen in modern medicine. Adaptogens are believed to help ease both physical and mental stress and could help your cognition improve over the long term.

How will ashwagandha help my cognition?

Studies show that ashwagandha has the ability to reduce stress and help calm the brain. There has also been some evidence to suggest that chemicals called withanolides, found in ashwagandha, could shield your brain cells from oxidative stress. In the long term, this could be very beneficial for your brain health. Other studies have also supported the herbs use in Indian daily life as a tonic, stating that the use of ashwagandha ‘has a logical and scientific basis’. With lower stress levels and a calmer brain, resting after a long day becomes much easier, as well as keeping your performance levels high.

How long will it take to see results?

The positive effects of taking our nootropics can be felt after just a few days of consumption. However, we suggest waiting for at least 30 days before you determine whether the supplements are benefitting you.

When used alongside the other ingredients in our Brain Health supplement, you can help to hone and enhance your cognition, keeping your brain performing at its best. Remember - as with any other supplement, patience is crucial if you want to see optimum results. We suggest taking your two daily capsules alongside other routines, such as brushing your teeth, in order to avoid skipping days. It may even be helpful to set up reminders on your phone if you’re struggling to keep up with your consumption. 

Along with ashwagandha, our nootropics supplement contains eight other all-natural ingredients to help enhance your cognitive function. Whether you want to improve your memory, focus or creativity, this supplement could make all the difference. Read more about Sons Brain Health today.
