Ashwagandha is a shrub grown in warm regions of Asia, Africa, and Europe, and has been used in Ayurvedic and Unani medicine for nearly 3,000 years as a natural remedy for a multitude of both common and complex ailments. Its traditional use has grown substantially over time, making it one of the most popular adaptogens on the market, and a subject of numerous clinical studies on the possible activity of the withanolide glycoside it contains on stress and cognition. Today, it is a globally recognized adaptogen and powerful neuroprotective extract.


Many current studies outline the potential of ashwagandha for its benefits surrounding cognitive function, stress management, sleep quality, and daily energy levels. For some, the herb is used in moderation to lessen the effects of stress on the body; for others, it is incorporated into a daily routine for its myriad health benefits.

Shoden® Ashwagandha Benefits and Uses

Thanks to an industry-leading 35% withanolide glycoside content, Shoden is a potent ashwagandha extract that possesses high bioavailability and expresses activity even in low amounts. It is HPLC-tested for purity and potency with the highest concentration, rendering it the world’s most bioactive ashwagandha extract. Thanks to several clinical studies, it is now widely accepted within the scientific community that extracts from the ashwagandha plant can be used to help the body in reducing stress, improving quality of sleep, and boosting cognitive performance.

Stress Levels

The body’s ability to cope with significant levels of stress and react to adverse events can be muted by a number of environmental factors. However, adaptogens such as ashwagandha extract help mediate the effects of stress on the body. Two double-blind studies involving a root and leaf extract of ashwagandha revealed that, compared to the placebo group, subjects taking the high potency extract were found to have lower saliva and serum cortisol levels and perceived stress. This significant improvement is repeated through several other studies conducted by researchers over the past decade.

Sleep Quality

Around 10% of the global population reports suffering from non restorative sleep, and although researchers are unable to clinically define the cause, it is most often associated with high levels of stress. A recent double-blind, placebo controlled study found that taking Shoden ashwagandha daily for six weeks at the recommended serving size resulted in a 72% improvement in restful sleep for the test subjects in comparison with the placebo group.

Cognitive Function

A recent 90-day study measuring the cognitive impact of ashwagandha extract on healthy adults concluded that ashwagandha extract taken daily as a dietary supplement improved memory, focus, and mental wellbeing when assessed after the allotted time frame. Similar, smaller studies yield the same results. Researchers have concluded that the mechanism of action in cognitive health stem from the plant’s adaptogenic properties, meaning that the remediation of oxidative stress lead to improved cognitive function and overall wellbeing in the case of a full-spectrum ashwagandha extract.

Ashwagandha is known by a number of alternative names, including:

  • Indian ginseng
  • Winter cherry
  • Withania somnifera
