Ashwagandha (aka Withania Somnifera) Supplementation
I am after patient and ideally neurologist feedbacks regarding intake of Ashwagandha supplementation. Since there is a large accademic litterature praising its potential positive effects on nervous system and neuro-inflammation (but sadly no controlled trial was ever undertaken to the best of my knowledge), I thought of having my dad go for it.
He has been on a dietary supplement made up of Ashwagandha root extracts (800mg/day of withanosides components) in addition to two other traditional ayurvedic plants extracts for a couple of months now. When starting it, he did feel a positive difference (less tired).
But again, impossible to say how much can be attributed to the supplement, nor how much his (slowish) rate of progression is influenced. So any additional input would be much appreciated !
