In the ancient Ayurveda treatment system in India, there is a plant with many medicinal and health preserving values, which can reduce stress and anxiety, improve energy, improve sleep, reduce your desire for food and assist you in having a better married life.
Now, you may find it on the menu of European and American fashion cafes - sometimes restaurants will mix it with Indian milk tea to make lattes.
In Sanskrit, its name literally means "horse smell", because its root has a special smell. (However, South Africa drunk eggplant will not make you smell.) The European and American dietary supplement market classifies it as an Adaptogen supplement, that is, it can balance your body's response to stress, calm or revitalize you when needed.
According to the market data from HerbalGram, the sales of dietary supplements containing South African drunken eggplants in the United States in the natural product channel increased by 26% year on year, and the market sales in 2017 reached US $10.6 million.
A case published in the British Medical Journal reported that a woman's hair loss decreased significantly after taking South African drunk eggplant for several months.
South African drunk eggplant also improved her potential health status, including thyroid, cortisol, insulin and other hormone disorders. Although South African drunk eggplant is not usually considered to be able to cure hair loss, this lady has gained this unexpected surprise.
What are the main ingredients and effects of South African drunk eggplant Ashwagandha?
The history of South African drunk eggplant can be traced back to about 6000 years ago. In general, it is regarded as a tonic, so it is also called "Indian Ginseng", which can help you keep young physically and mentally.
Many of its health benefits are attributed to its high concentration of solanolides, as well as other active ingredients such as choline, sitosterol, monlanine, endogenous acid and other alkaloids, scopolamine, chlorogenic acid, tannic acid and flavonoids.
Throughout the ages, it has been used to reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and relieve symptoms of depression.
1. Relieve pressure
Helps reduce the adrenal pressure hormone cortisol
2. Promote sleep
The Latin botanical name somnifera of South African drunk eggplant means "inducing sleep"
3. Improve brain function, including memory, and promote clear mind and concentration
In one study, South African drunk eggplants showed help in improving memory and cognitive function in adults within 8 weeks
4. Reproductive health
In a study of 75 infertile men, the group treated with South African drunk eggplant showed an increase in sperm count and motility. More importantly, the treatment showed a significant increase in testosterone levels.
In another study, clinical studies were conducted in men with low sperm counts.
After three months of treatment, the results showed that South African drunk eggplant increased sperm concentration by 167%, sperm volume by 59%, and sperm activity by 57%. It also optimized the hormone levels in these men, increasing testosterone by 17%, and 14% of men's partners were pregnant.
Thyroid function optimization in patients with subclinical hypothyroidism
In order to evaluate the effect of South Africa drunk eggplant supplement on patients with subclinical hypothyroidism, Indian researchers conducted a double-blind placebo-controlled trial, inviting 50 patients aged between 18 and 50 years old with elevated thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) of 4.5 to 10 micro IU/L.
The subjects were randomly divided into two groups: one group took 600mg South African drunk eggplant supplement, and the other group took the same dose of placebo. Serum thyroid hormones TSH, T3 and T4 were measured at baseline and at the end of the study.
After 8 weeks of intervention, the results showed that compared with placebo, 600mg of Sophora humilis extract per day could significantly improve thyroid level.
The levels of triiodothyroxine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) in the experimental group increased significantly by 41.5% and 19.6%, respectively. Moreover, the level of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) decreased by 17.5%.
As hypothyroidism will cause low thyroid hormone levels, South African drunk eggplant can regulate thyroid hormone levels and support thyroid health.
Helping fitness shaping
It can improve exercise endurance, promote testosterone, and reduce cortisol, which is beneficial to muscle growth
