- Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Do not use Ashwagandha if you are pregnant. There is some evidence that suggests that Ashwagandha might cause miscarriages.
- Diabetes: Ashwagandha might lower blood sugar levels. This could interfere with medications used for diabetes and cause blood sugar levels to go too low. If you have diabetes, monitor your blood sugar closely and consult your doctor before taking Ashwagandha.
- High or low blood pressure: Ashwagandha might decrease blood pressure. This could cause blood pressure to go too low in people with low blood pressure, or interfere with medications used to treat high blood pressure. Ashwagandha should be used cautiously if you have low blood pressure or take medications for your blood pressure.
- Stomach ulcers: Ashwagandha can irritate the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Don’t use Ashwagandha if you have a stomach ulcer.

Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera) is an herb used in Ayurveda, the traditional medicine of India. Its root has a horsey smell (in Sanskrit, Ashva means horse and Gandha means smell) and is said to confer the strength and virility of a horse. Various parts of the plant are used, but the most common in supplements is an extract of its roots.
A number of studies suggest that it has anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) effects; studies are mostly supportive of a notable effect of Ashwagandha for this purpose, and it seems to reduce cortisol levels. Ashwagandha also reduces insomnia, fatigue, and symptoms of depression. It can lead to small reductions in blood glucose, blood pressure, and LDL-cholesterol, while slightly increasing HDL-cholesterol. Additionally, it may modestly increase testosterone and sperm quality in infertile men.
It seems to be safe, but it needs more long-term research that's specifically designed to evaluate its safety. It may cause mild drowsiness and sedation for some people.
The current studies suggest that the effects of Ashwagandha on stress/anxiety continually improve for at least two months after starting the daily dose of supplements.
Ashwagandha does appear to have benefits for men specifically. They tend to centralize around testicular health and fertility while the antistress effects affect both sexes.
Ashwagandha is used for arthritis, anxiety, bipolar disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), balance, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), trouble sleeping (insomnia), tumors, tuberculosis, asthma, a skin condition marked by white patchiness (leukoderma), bronchitis, backache, fibromyalgia, menstrual problems, hiccups, Parkinson's disease, under-active thyroid (hypothyroidism), and chronic liver disease. It is also used to reduce the side effects of medications used to treat cancer and schizophrenia. Ashwagandha is used to reduce levels of fat and sugar in the blood.
Some people also use Ashwagandha to improve thinking ability, decreasing pain and swelling (inflammation), and preventing the effects of aging. It is used for fertility problems in men and women and also to increase sexual desire. Ashwagandha is applied to the skin to treat wounds, backache, and one-sided paralysis (hemiplegia).
The lowest effective dose recorded is 300-500 mg daily. Again, it's best taken consistently and will work better the longer you take it over a period of time. The therapeutic dose is 6,000 mg per day, divided into three doses of 2,000 mg.
Ashwagandha can also improve the quality of sleep and may help with the treatment of insomnia. Specifically, the leaves of the plant contain the compound Trimethylene Glycol, which promotes sleep induction. You can take Ashwagandha as a tasty sleepytime moon milk which is made by adding Ashwagandha and nutmeg to warm milk.
The recommended dose of Ashwagandha root or leaf powder for both short- and long-term use is 1–2 tablespoon twice daily, boiled in water or mixed with milk, buttermilk, ghee, or honey. You can also have ashwagandha root or leaf extract in the dose of 600–1200 mg.
It's possible that Ashwagandha has a calming effect on anxiety symptoms when compared to the drug lorazepam (a sedative and anxiety medication). A study published in the journal Phytomedicine showed that the herb had the ability to reduce anxiety levels.
