ADAPTOGENIC ACTIVITY OF AJASWAGANDHADHI LEHYAM AND ITS EFFECT ON CORTISOL LEVEL IN MALE WISTAR RATS
European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine,

Stress can be either acute or chronic. Stress is associated with altered hormonal secretions of cortisol. Cortisol is a steroid hormone, which is released during stress. Adaptogens are herbs that improve the responses to stress. In traditional medicine, the Ajaswagandhadhi Lehyam is found to reduce stress induced damage and thereby reduces oxidative stress, facilitating fertility in male Wistar rats because of its radical scavenging activity and also due to the presence of phenolic compounds and flavonoids.
