Comprehensive Exploration of Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha): A Quantitative Analysis of Bioactive Compounds and Traditional Applications

D. P. Chavan

Abstract: Withania somnifera, widely known as Ashwagandha, has garnered acclaim for its multifaceted therapeutic properties. This research embarks on a comprehensive study, aiming to conduct a meticulous quantitative analysis of its vital bioactive compounds?namely withanolides, alkaloids, and flavonoids. Beyond elucidating the intricate chemical composition, our investigation extends into exploring potential applications arising from these pharmacological constituents. Incorporating real experimental data, encompassing extraction yields and High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) results, this study provides concrete insights into the concentrations of pivotal compounds. Beyond the laboratory context, our research delves into the traditional uses of Ashwagandha. This holistic approach uncovers its reputed benefits in calming the brain, reducing swelling, lowering blood pressure, and modulating the immune system. By bridging traditional wisdom with contemporary scientific analysis, this study presents a nuanced and comprehensive perspective on Ashwagandha's therapeutic potential, providing a solid foundation for future investigations and applications in the realms of health and wellness.
