Stress Support Complex
Organic Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) (root) - It is perhaps best known for its ability to reduce stress. Adaptogens are substances that help the body cope with stress. There is evidence that Ashwagandha helps control several mediators of stress, including heat shock proteins (Hsp70), cortisol, and stress-activated c-Jun N-terminal protein kinase (JNK-1). Additionally, it reduces the activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, which regulates the stress response in your body. Stress and anxiety may be relieved by ashwagandha supplements, according to several studies. (1)(2)
Ashwagandha may benefit athletic performance and may be a worthwhile supplement for athletes. An analysis of research included 12 studies involving men and women taking ashwagandha doses between 120 mg and 1,250 mg per day. Physical performance, such as strength and oxygen use, may be enhanced by the herb. It was found that taking ashwagandha significantly increased maximum oxygen consumption (VO2 max) in healthy adults and athletes. VO2 max measures how much oxygen a person can use during intense exercise. A heart and lung fitness test. Both athletes and nonathletes need to have optimal VO2 max. Higher VO2 max is associated with a lower risk of heart disease, whereas low VO2 max is associated with increased mortality risk. (3)(4)(5)
Certain populations may benefit from ashwagandha's ability to reduce symptoms of depression and other mental health conditions. Ashwagandha was studied in 66 people with schizophrenia experiencing depression and anxiety in one study. For 12 weeks, participants taking 1,000 mg of ashwagandha extract daily reduced depression and anxiety more than those taking a placebo. (6)
Withanolida and Inflammation
There are compounds in Ashwagandha, including withanolides, that may reduce inflammation. Withanolida targets inflammatory pathways in the body, including nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB) and nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2). Withanolide has also been shown to reduce inflammatory proteins like interleukin-10 (IL-10) in animal studies. Human studies have shown that ashwagandha may reduce inflammatory markers. Adults experiencing stress were given ashwagandha extract for 60 days in a 2008 study. They had significant reductions in C-reactive protein, an inflammatory marker, compared to those who consumed a placebo. (7)
Ashwagandha may help with sleep issues, and some evidence suggests it promotes restful sleep. Taking 600 mg of ashwagandha root per day for 12 weeks improved sleep quality and mental alertness upon waking significantly compared with a placebo treatment. This was according to a study of 50 adults. In addition, ashwagandha was found to have a small but significant positive effect on overall sleep quality in a review of five high-quality studies. When people took ashwagandha, their anxiety levels were reduced and they felt more alert in the morning. (8)(9)
Organic Black pepper (Piper nigrum) (fruit) - A plant compound called piperine found in black pepper has potent antioxidant properties, according to test-tube studies. Free radicals may be prevented or delayed by eating a diet high in antioxidants. Animal studies have shown that piperine improves brain function. Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease are two degenerative brain conditions for which it may be beneficial. (10)(11)(12)
