Ashwagandha herbal arthritis pain relief

Ashwagandha is probably the best known Ayurvedic herb for rejuvenation and stress relief. Ashwagandha means "smelling like a horse" in Sanskrit. This is because of two reasons. The first is that the Ashwagandha root literally smells like a horse and the second reason is that taking Ashwagandha gives one the strength of a horse.

The Ashwagandha root is found to contain cuseohygrine, anahygrine, tropine, and anaferine. It also contains glycosides, withenolide with starches and amino acid. Ashwagandha is anti-inflammatory and relieves stress. As per Ayurveda, it has Ushan Virya potency which suppresses pain. As arthritis is associated with inflammation and stress, Ashwagandha has been found to be extremely beneficial in cases of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout and sciatica. Ashwagandha being an adaptogenic herb, regulates the immune, hormonal and nervous systems.

There have been numerous studies on Ashwagandha. In one clinical study, 42 patients with osteoarthritis were randomly placed in two groups--one receiving ashwagandha, one a placebo. After three months, pain and disability were markedly reduced in the ashwagandha group
