Ashwagandha Root May Help Improve Sleep Quality

Ashwagandha Root May Help Improve Sleep Quality






Sleep onset latency is the length of time it takes to transition
from full wakefulness to sleep. The sleep onset latency period typically is
extremely long for people who suffer from insomnia. A new study suggests that Ashwagandha root may help improve sleep onset latency and sleep quality.





Participants in the study included 60 people between the ages of
18 and 60 who suffered from insomnia. Half the participants took 300 mg of
Ashwagandha root extract twice a day for 10 days. The other half took a
placebo. The researchers used sleep actigraphy to monitor sleep onset latency,
total sleep time, wake after sleep onset, and sleep efficiency at baseline,
week 5, and week 10. Sleep quality was self-assessed using a seven-point scale.
The Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale was used to measure anxiety.





Participants in the supplement group had significantly shorter
sleep onset latency at the end of the study compared to the placebo. They also
had significant improvements in sleep efficiency and sleep quality. Additionally,
the supplement group had a significant decrease in their Hamilton Anxiety Rating
Scale scores.





The study was conducted by researchers from the Patil University
School of Medicine. It was published online ahead of print on September 28,
2019 in the journal Cureus.
