Daily BioBasics is a blend of more than 100 herbs, fruits and vegetables extracts, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other key nutrients designed to promote overall health and to support a large number of key body functions. Ashwagandha has been used for centuries by Indian Ayurvedic medicine practitioners. It is a plant which has shown remarkable stress-relieving properties working to provide stress relief as well as to alleviate symptoms of anxiety disorders such as panic attacks, generalized anxiety disorder or obsessive compulsive disorder. Although how the plant work is not clearly understood, it is believed it acts on the receptors of the neurotransmitter GABA, known for its calming effect on the nervous system.
Ashwagandha seems to have excellent protective effects on the nervous system through its antioxidant properties. Current research is studying its potential effects as an alternative treatment for memory disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease or pain disorders caused by neurological function deterioration such as Parkinson’s disease. Preliminary evidence suggests that Ashwagandha may have anti-cancer benefits as well. It is generally considered safe for short-term use; however side effects may include diarrhea, stomach upset, vomiting.
Glutathione is an antioxidant synthesized in the liver. It is involved in a number of body functions and processes, such as DNA synthesis and repair, protein synthesis, amino acid transport, metabolism of toxins and carcinogens, immune system function, enzyme activation and prevention of oxidative cell damage. Its medicinal applications are still under research and may include cancer and heart disease prevention, as well as in memory loss treatment, Alzheimer’s disease treatment, mild cognitive impairment treatment or Parkinson’s disease treatment. Also, low levels of Glutathione have been linked to diseases affecting the immune system such as chronic fatigue syndrome or AIDS.
