What is Sensoril?
Sensoril, also known as Withania somnifera or winter cherry, is a small evergreen shrub found in dry areas of India and the Middle East, as well as parts of Africa.1 For hundreds of years it has traditionally been used as a herb in Ayurvedic (Indian) medicine for a number of stress‐related indications and is revered for its ability to tone, normalise and revitalise. It is often referred to as ‘Indian ginseng’ because it is used in much the same way that Panax ginseng is used in traditional Chinese Medicine, although it is considered to be less stimulating.2 Withania is traditionally used in Ayurvedic Medicine as a tonic, to assist in cases of general debility, fatigue and nervous exhaustion and is considered to be an ‘adaptogen,’ helping the body to cope with physical or emotional stress.
Sensoril is a special standardised Withania extract which has been shown in a clinical study to help reduce symptoms associated with stress and anxiety including fatigue, flushing, loss of appetite, headaches, muscle pain, palpitations, dry mouth, sleeplessness, forgetfulness, irritability and inability to concentrate.
Why your body needs Sensoril
