The use of ashwagandha as a rasayana herb in ayurvedic medicine dates back thousands of years. Sensoril is made by extracting ashwagandha from the roots and leaves of the plant using water and methanol. The main medical constituents of Sensoril are alkanoids, flavanoids and steroidal lactones called withanolides. Withanolides are said to have anti-stress, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties, as well as improving mental clarity, enhancing the immune system and rejuvenating energy levels. Flavonoids are known to be powerful anti-oxidants that fight cancer-causing carcinogens in the body.
