Ashwagandha: Continues to add Feathers to its Loaded Cap

 

Ashwagandha:

Continues to add Feathers to its Loaded Cap

 

Ayurveda and Ashwagandha alliterate well. No wonder Ashwagandha enjoys its pride of place in Ayurveda. Used by the native populations since time immemorial, it is reputed for its restorative powers. Ashwagandha literally means “the smell of a horse.” It is supposed to impart the vigour and strength of a stallion and has been traditionally prescribed to help people strengthen their immune system post-illness. It is often referred to as “Indian ginseng” because of its rejuvenating properties (although botanically, ginseng and Ashwagandha are unrelated). In addition, Ashwagandha is also used to enhance sexual potency in both men and women. 

 

Belonging to the same family as the tomato, Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is a plump shrub with oval leaves and yellow flowers. It bears red berries about the size of a grape. Its specific name somnifera, also tells us something about its sleep-inducing, relaxing and calming properties that boosts energy by seeding deeper rest. The herb is native to the dry regions of India, northern Africa, and the Middle East, but today is also grown in more mild climates, including in the United States.


 

The scientific literature on Ashwagandha mentions the following benefits:

·         Supports sustained energy levels, strength and vitality including physical activity.

·         Reduces anxiety and depression without causing drowsiness

·         Improves learning, memory and reaction time

·         Confers immune system protection

·         Offers anti-inflammatory benefits

·         Reduces brain-cell degeneration

·         Promotes respiratory health

·         Combats the effects of stress

·         Stabilizes blood sugar

·         Has rejuvenative nature

 



 


 Yet another research throws light on the role of Ashwagandha in the management of COVID-19 . In  a particular study, it was   observed that men with symptomatic COVID-19, with low testosterone, were more likely to become severely ill and die from the   disease. This study was  carried out in Milan during the first wave of coronavirus in 2020 and the findings were presented at the   European Association of Urology congress, EAU21,  July 8-12.2021. It is widely known that Ashwagandha boosts testosterone levels,   and therefore, it is highly recommended in the treatment of COVID-19.


 





In nutshell, Ashwagandha is: बल्या रसायनी तिक्ता क्षयापहातिशुक्रला !!


Sandu Offers the Ashwagandha advantage in many products including Stresan, Vimfix, Shishuvin, Sandu Ashwagandharishta, Sandu Makarprash, Sandu Saraswatarishta, etc.

Ayurveda Is Here to Stay Forever!!

Did our ancient seers know that Ayurveda will be  “talk of the world” in 2021? The answer is surely, a resounding yes!! Our ancient seers very confidently talked about ever-modern nature  of Ayurveda. The ancient seers were very confident about the soundness of the principles of Ayurveda. According to Ayurveda, the human body is a miniature universe! The concept of TRIDOSHA, i.e. of  Vata, Pitta and Kapha, which are the functional elements of the body, is based on the Wind, the Sun, and the Moon respectively! Eternal nature of the Wind, the Sun and the Moon  ensures the eternity  of Ayurveda!! According to Ayurveda, strong defence system is the strong and sound balance of Tridosha, the functional elements of the body.

For millennia, Ayurveda evolved through a process of scientific enquiry involving communities and societies. The scientific knowledge was created by an interchange of information between patients, physicians and researchers. Teachers would pass their wisdom, updated with this scientific inquiry and application of their own learnings to their students in an interactive manner, through what was called as the Guru-Shishya tradition.  There are no limitations to the knowledge of Ayurveda, continuous growth is its nature. Also, there is no limit for knowing the Science of Ayurveda. Various Tadvidya Sambhasha, Scientific conferences are described in Charaka Samhita, the ancient book of Ayurveda.

We realize the importance of Ayurveda, when we hear about the Nobel Prizes in Medicine or Physiology awarded in the current decade. From 2015 to 2020, all Nobel Prizes, confirm the authenticity of some or other basic Ayurveda principle, be it of fasting or Circadian Rhythm!

Globally, the world is in favour of Ayurveda, the most ancient Health Science now enjoys unprecedented world patronage. We should strive the most so that Ayurveda gets its rightful place as a mainstream medicinal system.

Our beloved Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi said, ‘Ayurveda could rightly be described as a holistic human science. The current situation presents a right time for traditional medicine to become even more popular globally’, while inaugurating the fourth edition of the Global Ayurveda Festival 2021. Here, he was referring to the current situation of CORONA pandemic. Corona pandemic has underlined the importance of strong defense mechanisms, strong immunity.



It is necessary that scientific communities reach out to Translational Knowledge Systems available locally. Let us all work towards our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s vision of 'Vocal for local should become mantra for every Indian!!
 
By being vocal about Ayurveda, we make it “GLOBAL”, the rightful status it deserves.
