Clinically studied for stress relief
Many clinical trials show ashwagandha offers a wide range of benefits, and helps balance the body’s response to stresses of day-to-day living. In fact, ashwagandha has become one of the most sought-after botanicals for stress management, with human and animal research finding it promotes a healthy stress response, memory health and cognition, overall well-being and more.
In a 60-day clinical trial, 130 adults with chronic stress were randomized to 125 mg of Sensoril® once or twice daily, 250 mg of Sensoril® twice daily, or placebo. At 60 days, all of the stress-related parameters being assessed were significantly improved in the groups receiving ashwagandha, with the higher doses eliciting a greater response. The ashwagandha extract also helped balance biological markers of stress and encouraged a healthy balance of the stress-related hormones cortisol and DHEA.
Ashwagandha, cognitive health and mood
Stress can also affect memory, concentration and mood. In the 60-day study, at each dose ashwagandha improved self-rating scores of cognitive function and mood. Specifically, ashwagandha helped relieve feelings of worry and irritability, and encouraged healthy memory and concentration.
The participants taking ashwagandha also had improvements in physical parameters related to stress such as stress-related muscle tension. Again, at the higher doses, greater improvements were seen.
Overall well-being and energy
Ashwagandha enhanced the reported well-being and energy level scores of study participants as well. Both well-being and general fatigue scores significantly improved in all groups given ashwagandha by day 30 and further improved by day 60—and again, no improvements were seen in the placebo group.
