The ASHWAGANDHA plant is a small blooming shrub with delicate yellow flowers whose roots and leaves are used medicinally in many traditional, herbal systems. Originally native to India and North Africa, but now found plentifully throughout the Amazonian rain forest ecosystems, ASHWAGANDHA it is referred to as the "King of Herbs." Our ASHWAGANDH POWDER is USDA Organic and human grade.
ASHWAGANDHA is a popular herbal adaptogen that may help deliver multiple health benefits, particularly related to its potential to support nervous system response when excess stress, anxiety. nervous tension, hyperactivity, and environmental stress triggers are experienced, including the potential to help build resistance to stress response, and may help promote calmness and feelings of relaxation when peace has been interrupted.
ASHWAGANDHA has potential enhanced abilities to help the animal body respond to and manage common stress related to separation anxiety, fear, fireworks, thunder and lightning, loud noises, physical pain, visiting guests or other stressors, helping your dog or cat maintain a relaxed disposition.
What is an adaptogen and why are they valuable? Adaptogens may be an invaluable addition to your pet's diet because they may help carry out what we call the "3 R" Function" OR read, repair and restore actions. First, an adaptogen may help identify or read stress and imbalance; second, may help repair the body both nutritionally and phytochemically; and third, may help restore homeostasis, or balance, in your pet's body systems. Body system balance may offset disease.
One of the most widely used applications for the ASHWAGANDHA plant is related to its potential pancreatic support., including its traditional use to help reduce blood sugar levels in diabetic and non diabetic people alike, to help moderate excess cortisol production which drives increased blood sugar levels, may help increase insulin production and may help improve insulin sensitivity in muscle cells, which is a critical benefit for diabetic pets.
ASHWAGANDHA may have a unique role in potentially helping support healthy endocrine function (especially thyroid and adrenal glands) and its enzyme content may help support balanced gland and hormone response, especially when elevated stress hormones occur. A secondary response related to gland and hormone production is a potential benefit and protection for the pancreas as it may help support healthy blood sugar levels even when proper gland and hormone function have been interrupted.
Additionally, it may help boost mood with a possible role in helping offset depression and help support healthy cognitive (brain) function by potentially helping limit neural inflammation, its antioxidant content may protect nerve cells in the brain from damaging free radicals, both precursors to cognitive decline.
Interestingly, ASHWAGANDHA has also been studied and confirmed for its anti-mutagenic, anti-angiogenic, anti-tumoral and potent anti-inflammatory actions to help support proper tissue and cell health, may help promote unhealthy cell apoptosis, and may support fluid balance in the blood and tissues, especially important when fatty tumors or lipomas present. Its glucosinolate content may help support skin and coat follicle health and healthy joints and connective tissue.
The high iron and amino acid nutritional content in ASHWAGANDHA (glycine, valine, tyrosine, proline, alanine), may be valuable for conditions related to anemia, bacterial infections and protracted loose stools such as diarrhea.
ASHWAGANDHA has a lengthy history for its antioxidant, anti-aging and analgesic (pain relieving) properties related to its enhanced alkaloid, anoloide and hematinic (increases hemoglobin ratio) content that may not only help stimulate immune response by either helping upregulate or down regulate immune health as needed toward balance. Plant actions of ASHWAGANDHA include diuretic, sedative, antibacterial, and anti-fungal, and cardiotonic to help support heart health and proper metabolic rate, critical to helping maintain proper weight.
