Ashwagandha Product Sensoril™ Linked With Wide Range of Health Benefits
Ashwagandha is an Indian herb that has been used for generations as a folk remedy. The company NutraGenesis has the longest experience producing and selling ashwagandha in the United States, under the name Sensoril. They've recently released the results of five studies showing extensive, targeted health benefits of ashwagandha.
Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh conducted the first study, which examined the effects of ashwagandha on mental cognition and memory of people with short memory problems and difficulty focusing.
The second study sought to discover whether or not there was scientific evidence behind the traditional use of ashwagandha to relieve stress. The researchers examined the effect of ashwagandha supplementation on Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD).
The study included 80 participants who took Sensoril™ for 60 days. At the conclusion of the study, the researchers noted a 50% decrease in anxiety scores.
The final three studies focused on heart health. The first of these three looked at the effect of Sensoril™ or Sensoril™ taken together with Indian Gooseberry on endothelial function. The researchers tested lipid profile, inflammation (CRP reduction), glutathione increase, nitric oxide increase and blood sugar balance.
The last two heart health focused studies examined how heart conditions changed when the participants were under cold and mental stress conditions.
None of these studies have been published yet, but the researchers were especially excited about the endothelial function study, as products with endothelial function benefits tend to be high in antioxidants, but Sensoril™ has relatively low antioxidant activity. This suggests that there is another ingredient specific to Ashwagandha that is producing these beneficial effects.
Previous studies suggest that ashwagandha may help with memory, cognitive function and brain health, increase strength, and help with sexual dysfunctions. The best way to consume ashwagandha is by taking a high quality supplement.
