Project Profile
  • Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), also known as Indian ginseng, Winter cherry, Ajagandha, Kanaje Hindi and Samm Al Ferakh, is a plant in Solanaceae or nightshade family. It grows as a stout shrub that reaches a height of 170cm. Like the tomato which belongs to the same family, ashwagandha bears yellow flowers and red fruit, though its fruit is berry-like in size and shape. Ashwagandha grows prolifically in India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.
  • Ashwagandha possesses anti-inflammatory, antitumor, antistress, antioxidant, immunomodulatory, hemopoetic, and rejuvenating properties. It also has a positive influence on the endocrine, cardiopulmonary, and central nervous systems. The Indian Central Council for Research on Ayurveda and Siddha tells us that ashwaganda root exerts its most powerful pharmacological influence on the reproductive system, neuropharmacological disorders,cardiovascular system, respiratory system, bacteria, fungi, inflammation and gastric acidity
  •  Ethanolic or aqueous extract of the root alone or in combination with other herbal materials is used in many commercial herbal formulations under various trade names such as Mentat, Geriforte, Pepcaps, 30 plus, Stresscom, Ashwagandharisht, Ashwagandhadi-churan, Ashwagandha-rasayanrist, and Ashwagandha-ghrit
  • The cultivation is done at Mandsore district of Madhya Pradesh. Annual production of drug is 12,000 tons both from wild as well as cultivated sources.Convolvulus arvensis Himalayan mountain variety found in Nepal is the original one described in Sanskrit texts, and that Withaniaa somnifera was discovered and used later by doctors in India.
  •  The annual requirement of the drug in Indian market is about 3000 tons.
    Ashwagandha root has great demand in crude drug market. Present market rate of dried root is about 80 per kg. The wholesale rate is about Rs 5000 per quintal
  •  The US Patents and Trademarks Office (USPTO) has granted a dozen patents in the last five years on ashwagandha centred findings.
  • Ashwagandha has been used as an herbal remedy for hundreds of years. It has many applications, and has been used by Native Americans and Africans to treat inflammation, fevers, and to protect against infection or illness. It has also been used to boost the immune system, improve memory, and to promote overall wellness. 
  • The market report states that Over 150 ashwagandha accessions collected from all over India and chemoprofiled, Contrasting chemotypes identified, Pharmacological studies of selected plants underway and Positioning Ashwagandha in global herbal market through systematic scientific validation.
  • The Indian herb is not a commercial success. One of the reasons for this is the lack of standards, which has led to a wide variation in the chemical composition of ashwagandha-based drugs. The discrepancy, detected during a recent study, occurs in herbal products of even reputable companies.
