Ashwagandha has a reputation as a general energy-promoting, disease-preventing tonic. This may be because of its effect on the immune system. A number of studies have shown significant increases in white blood cell counts and other measures of strengthened immunity in rodents given ashwagandha or certain chemicals extracted from the herb. Ashwagandha may also have a mild sedative effect on the central nervous system and it has been shown to be a muscle relaxant.
