Treats Depression, Mental Fatigue & Stress relieve

BCB’s Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is an adaptogenic herb widely used in Ayurvedic medicine for its potential health benefits, including its effects on depression, mental fatigue, and stress. However, the evidence regarding its use specifically in children for these conditions is limited. Here's a breakdown of its potential benefits:


-Ashwagandha has been studied for its antidepressant properties, attributed to its ability to modulate neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain.

-Some animal studies and a few small human trials suggest that ashwagandha may help alleviate symptoms of depression by reducing stress levels and improving mood. However, more extensive research, particularly in pediatric populations, is needed to confirm its efficacy and safety.

***Mental Fatigue***

-Ashwagandha is believed to have adaptogenic properties, meaning it may help the body adapt to stressors and enhance resilience.

-Some studies suggest that ashwagandha supplementation may improve cognitive function and reduce mental fatigue by supporting adrenal gland function and reducing cortisol levels, which are associated with stress and fatigue.

-While these effects may be beneficial for combating mental fatigue, especially in stressful situations, more research is needed to understand its specific mechanisms of action and its efficacy in children.


-Ashwagandha is perhaps best known for its stress-reducing properties. It has been shown to lower levels of cortisol, the primary stress hormone, thereby promoting relaxation and reducing feelings of anxiety and tension.

-It's important to note that while ashwagandha may help alleviate stress and anxiety symptoms, it should not replace conventional treatments or therapies prescribed by healthcare providers, especially for children with diagnosed mental health conditions.
