Ashwagandha shows remarkable promise for possibly increasing brain function. It has been used traditionally in India for people with mental deficits in geriatric patients. Researchers have found that ashwagandha may possibly increase acetylcholine receptor activity. Increased acetylcholine receptor capacity might partly explain the cognition-enhancing and memory-improving effects of extracts from ashwagandha observed in animals and humans. Further studies indicate that ashwagandha may stimulate the growth of axons and dendrites.

 According to traditional Ayurvedic medicine, Ashwagandha most likely affects multiple body systems to promote emotional well-being, mental sharpness and physical endurance. Pharmacological studies indicate the mechanism of action is Withaferin-A, a primary Withanolide in Ashwagandha, which stimulates neurotransmitter pathways in the brain. This may effect enhances memory and other cognitive processes. Scientists have yet to pinpoint the specific functions supporting immune system response and other regulatory body systems, though it is believed that all the active glycowithanolides that derive from the plant work together to alleviate anxiety and panic, mild mood swings, lack of mental clarity/focus and mental/physical fatigue.

 Research has also found that raw ashwagandha may increase the levels of three naturally powerful antioxidants: superoxide dismutase, catalase, and glutathione peroxidase. The effects of these antioxidants may explain the reported anti-stress, cognition-facilitating, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging effects produced in experimental animal and in clinical situations. 

 These findings are consistent with the therapeutic use of ashwagandha root in Ayurveda as an overall health promoter. The root is primarily recognized for its adaptogenic properties. An adaptogen is a physiological agent with the ability to nourish the body. Through this nourishment the body is now able to better deal with daily emotional and physical stresses. Ayurvedic practitioners traditionally use Ashwagandha to promote gentle relaxation, emotional balance, and sexual vitality
