"Indian Ginseng" with special effects
Gandha is an extract from the plant Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha), an Ayurvedic plant with adaptogenic properties. Ashwagandha is different from other adaptogens in that it reduces the stress-related damage caused by an overactive nervous system in a state of alarm.

Stress relief and enhanced immune systems
In animal studies, Ashwagandha enhances the activity of key immune cells to improve their ability to protect the body. At the same time, it acts as an anti-inflammatory agent to prevent immune system excesses. It also protects animals against morphine tolerance, dependence and toxicity. Clinical trials have shown that people supplemented with Ashwagandha are less likely to develop ulcers, to have depleted levels of vitamin C, or to use up important adrenal hormones. Ashwagandha also contributes to increased physical endurance, increases red blood cell levels and lowers levels of markers of chronic inflammation.

Standardized for efficacy
Ashwagandha has been used traditionally in Ayurveda as a remedy for anxiety. This use, and others, have been tested and proven in modern scientific studies. AOR's Gandha is a standardized extract to provide the most potent doses of Ashwagandha's key ingredients.

Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) provides powerful support against overwhelming stress. While most adaptogens primarily work by helping the body to mobilize and maintain the physiological response to stress, Ashwagandha appears to work first and foremost by reducing the stress-related excesses of the alarmed nervous system.

In a controlled study in humans stressed with repeated, heavy swimming, people taking Ashwagandha were better protected against the effects of stress and had increased physical endurance, as compared with people taking Panax ginseng. Lab animals given Ashwagandha have better stress tolerance, longer swimming times, greater maintenance of glycogen energy stores, the development of more heart muscle mass, more muscle weight gain, and protection against the shrinking of the adrenals and the depletion of vitamin C. Under stress, such animals experience fewer gastric ulcers, less behavioral despair, and less need to pump out natural "pain killers" if given Ashwagandha.

The Immune System
Ashwagandha also protects the body against immune suppression. Mice who received Ashwagandha in addition to an immunosuppressive drug suffered much less suppression of bone marrow activity than animals given only the drug, with the result that they had higher hemoglobin, red blood cell counts, platelet counts, and body weights - and higher levels of the white blood cells of the immune system.

In another study, a mixture of Ashwagandha extracts activated immune cells called macrophages in laboratory animals, increasing their mobilization and their ability to consume foreign bacteria while boosting levels of enzymes that help the body break down damaged and toxic molecules left over from the body's metabolic process. In yet a third study, administration of Ashwagandha extract to either healthy or tumor¬bearing animals was found to enhance the proliferation of immune cells and their precursors in the thymus and bone marrow, actually doubling the body's response to either of two immunological challenges. Ashwagandha also boosted the activity of natural killer (NK) cells, and the immune cells' ability to destroy infected and foreign cells was enhanced.

In a double-blind trial in humans, healthy men given Ashwagandha for a year had increased red blood cell levels, greater libido, and lower measures of chronic inflammation than controls.

Ashwagandha has also been found to have significant anti-inflammatory activity, reducing the autoimmune response to an animal model of arthritis to a similar degree as a cortisone drug. In another study, Ashwagandha reduced both the degeneration of the joints and the swelling induced by an arthritis-inducing drug in experimental animals.

In some kinds of chronic inflammation or in cells infected by fungi or mycobacteria, the chronic attack of immune cells trying to clear the unclearable eventually leads to a nodule made up of densely-packed immune cells trapped within the enlarged local cells. In at least two animal studies, Ashwagandha has been shown to reduce the formation of these aggregated cellular nodules (granuloma).

The first active compounds discovered in Ashwagandha were a family of steroidal lactones collectively called the withanolides. More recently, a group of derivatives of the withanolides - the sitoindosides - were identified. Sitoindosides are more specific markers than the withanolides, and appear to be responsible for much of the herb's anti-stress and anti-anxiety activities. Accordingly, Ashwagandha supplements should be standardized to both their sitoindoside and withanolide levels.
