Pure Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) can be used to Balance, Strengthen, or Restore, and has been a staple of Ayurvedic medicine in India and southeast Asia for millennia -- both to help reduce symptoms of stress such as sleeplessness, fatigue, irritability and inability to concentrate, and, paradoxically, also to relieve fatigue and enhance stamina.
The explanation for Ashwagandha's multiple, seemingly contradictory balancing effects is that it can both significantly reduce cortisol levels -- the adrenal hormone that ramps up certain systems to deal with stressful situations, at the expense of others (like the immune system, the thyroid gland, toxin removal, and some sex hormones) -- and increase DHEA levels (dehydroepiandrosterone, the adrenal hormone which counteracts cortisol, and can help curb your impulse to eat more in response to stress, and balance high blood sugar levels and many other things)... particularly when offered in the standardized Sensoril® dosage like this. Some test tube experiments and animal studies also suggest it may be able to protect brain cells from damage and oxidative stress, help neurons regenerate, and improve memory.
