What is Ashwagandha?
“Indian Winter Cherry” or “Indian Ginseng," commonly known as Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), is an evergreen shrub that’s found in India, Africa, and parts of the Middle East. The Sanskrit words "ashwa" and "gandha" mean horse and aroma, respectively, and refer to a fragrant root that is primarily used in various natural skincare products. The name derives from the fact that when consumed, it can provide the strength and power of a horse. Its herbal formulation promotes physical and mental growth, as well as happiness. Ashwagandha root oil helps in promoting a baby’s muscle strength and fortifies the immune system to withstand seasonal challenges. The effects of Ashwagandha aid in stress reduction while promoting strength, intelligence, and sleep.
Benefits of Ashwagandha on Baby’s Skin
Ashwagandha is a superfood for the body and skin that promotes your baby’s healthy living and healthy skin.
Inflammation is the body's natural response to infections, toxins, and trauma. Under normal conditions, the body produces an anti-inflammatory response to restore balance. However, in some cases, particularly in babies, the body is unable to control the inflammatory response, resulting in an imbalance. The anti-inflammatory and wound-healing properties of Ashwagandha can be used to treat skin infections such as eczema, dermatitis, leucoderma, and others. It lowers blood CRP levels.
Ashwagandha is a safe and natural way to support a child's muscle strength to prevent injuries. Massaging your baby with Ashwagandha oil improves muscular strength and increases endurance, speed, and coordination.
Promotes better sleep
Ashwagandha helps children to improve their sleep, reduce stress, and improve their overall well-being. Children today live in a technologically advanced world. They are exposed to electronic devices and their electromagnetic frequencies (EMF) from birth or earlier. This results in inadequate sleep. According to research, Ashwagandha root contains sleep-inducing compounds. Massage with Ashwagandha root oil helps promote sleep and relaxation.
Improves Brain Power
Ashwagandha health benefits also include increased levels of acetylcholine, the most important neurotransmitter associated with enhanced brain power. According to research, low acetylcholine levels are associated with impaired cognitive function, including the inability to learn. Ashwagandha increases acetylcholine by inhibiting the activity of the enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine. In addition, the Ashwagandha root contains choline, which is required for the formation of acetylcholine.
Boost Immune System
Improving our children’s immune systems is something all parents want. One of the most well-known advantages of Ashwagandha for children is immunity-boosting due to its anti-oxidant and immunomodulatory properties. It also promotes the production of antibodies, which aid the body's response to a potentially fatal infection.
Ashwagandha has been shown to have powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and antibacterial properties that aid in the prevention of illness. According to studies, Ashwagandha root extract reduces the risk of any skin infection.
It's no surprise that there are no alternatives to natural ingredients. Ashwagandha, or Ashwagandha root oil, is one such natural ingredient with numerous skin and health benefits. It has made its mark in the skincare industry. It is an ingredient found in remedies and skin care products, including baby skincare.
