Ashwagandha also is known as Withania somnifera is a nightshade plant in the genus of Withania, belonging to the family Solanaceae, native to the dry parts of India, North Africa, Middle East, and the Mediterranean.
The herbal medicine has been considered as Indian ginseng and used in Ayurvedic medicine over 3000 years to treat tumors and tubercular glands, carbuncles, memory loss, and ulcers and considered as anti-stress, cognition-facilitating, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging herbal medicine.
With an aim to find a potent ingredient for the treatment of lung cancer, researchers examined the effects of Withaferin A (WA) a bioactive lactone, isolated from Withania somnifera on lung tumor cells both in vitro and in vivo.
Taken altogether, Ashwagandha processed abundantly bioactive compounds may be considered a functional herb for the prevention and an adjunct therapy combined with the primary medicine for the treatment of lung cancer, pending to the results of large sample size and multicenter study.
