Ashwagandha has been used for over 3,000 years in India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Throughout history, Ashwagandha has been widely used throughout India as a rejuvenative tonic, and is classed as a "rasayana." This group incorporates the most highly regarded therapeutic herbs in Ayurvedic medicine. The translation of Ashwagandha is roughly, "the smell and strength of a horse," possibly referring to its aphrodisiac properties.
The chemistry of Ashwagandha has been extensively studied and to date approximately 60 chemical constituents have been identified and isolated. The major constituents of the root are steroidal alkaloids and steroidal lactones belonging to a class called "withanolides." Much of the pharmacological activity has been attributed to two main withanolides, withaferin A and withanolide D. However, papers describing new constituents are being published continually. The whole root typically contains at least 1.5% withanolides* in addition to the other supporting constituents.
