Ashwagandha Enhances Muscle Strength and Exercise Results

Ashwagandha is an herb with rejuvenating properties, according to Indian Ayurvedic medicine. In this study, 38 recreationally active men, average age 26.5 years, who trained no more than two to three times per week, took a placebo or 500 mg of ashwagandha extract per day.

After 12 weeks, those taking ashwagandha saw a 90 percent increase in leg strength, adding 20 pounds more than placebo during the squat exercise. Upper body strength also increased by 60 percent during the bench press. Men in the ashwagandha group reported recovering 14 percent faster than placebo, while those in the placebo group reported 40 percent more muscle soreness vs. ashwagandha.

Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb, similar to ginseng, but it is less heating, yang or simulating than Panax ginseng. Ashwagandha is known as the "Ayurvedic Ginseng." It is indicated for the same types of conditions as Ginseng, but Ashwagandha is not heating, Yang or stimulating like Ginseng (Panax varieties). It is used preventatively for those who have difficulty replenishing the energy they expend, and want to avoid burn out. Burnout from unrelenting stress can take the form of immune breakdown (colds, flu), headaches, irritable bowel, blood sugar swings and any other genetic, predispositional or constitutional weakness. Ashwagandha gives additional life force or Chi to help adapt to the stresses at hand.

It can also be used as a restorative for those who have already burned out. Ashwagandha, as part of a rejuvenation treatment plan is effective in chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, debility, recovery from wasting diseases, chemotherapy and helps while one is in emotional recovery therapy.

Ashwagandha is also indicated specifically in autoimmune disorders. It helps immunity to self modulate. It also has an affinity to help chronic neuro-muscular disorders such as fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis (MS).
