Ashwagandha is known for:
- Lower the blood sugar level
- Decrease blood pressure
- Alter thyroid hormone level
These benefits might also pose a threat as ashwagandha can lower the blood sugar level of a person whose blood sugar levels are normal, possibly leading to hypoglycemia in those that are on medication. It can also affect blood pressure and thyroid hormone level.
As ashwagandha causes the immune system to become more active, it could increase the symptoms of auto-immune diseases. In some people, ashwagandha can irritate the gastrointestinal tract. It is also advised to stop taking ashwagandha for at least two weeks before and after surgery as it may slow down the central nervous system.
