Tranquility Kare is a pure herbal extract derived from Withania somnifera, a small shrub traditionally found in arid areas of India. The extract of Withania somnifera is known as “Ashwagandha” in ancient Ayurvedic medicine.
The roots and leaves of Ashwagandha contain alkaloids, withanolides, and sitoindosides that have long been considered calmative, immune enhancing, and stress-reducing.
The health applications of Ashwagandha in Ayurvedic tradition are extensive. Of particular note is its use in both Indian and African cultures to reduce inflammation, including arthritis, and for reducing fever.
Studies on the immuno-modulatory effects of Ashwagandha show a significant increase in bone marrow activity indicating potential benefit as an immunostimulatory agent. (ref: “The Herbalist – Ashwagandha Extract”).
The withanolides found in Ashwagandha are believed to account for its multiple health benefits. Withanolides are steroidal in nature, berating close resemblance in their effects and appearance to ginsenosides, the active constituents of Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng)
Withanolides have been shown to inhibit inflammation and improve memory, supporting the traditional reputation of Ashwagandha as an herb with multiple nonspecific actions that counteract the effects of stress, and generally promote wellness.
