Scientists have discovered that the Indian herb ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) counters some of the oxidative damage generated by nervous tension.44 Ashwagandha has been shown to confer improvements in well-being and a healthy outlook.45
In a large clinical trial, ashwagandha reduced levels of the hormone cortisol by up to 26%, while maintaining already normal blood sugar levels and already normal lipid profiles.46 Subjects who took the standardized ashwagandha extract reported improvements in energy, sleep and well-being, as well as diminished fatigue.46 Additional research suggests that ashwagandha confers neuroprotection by supporting the regeneration of axons and dendrites, nerve cell components that support brain and nervous system function.47,48
