“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. Highly Effective 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 powerful extract providing a potent dose of Ashwagandha’s key ingredients.
