Let’s understand each of the ingredients better.

Withania somnifera
It is commonly known as Aswagandha. It is a small perennial herb of the solanaceae family growing in temperate climatic zones. The species name somnifera means “sleep inducing” owing to the tranquilizing action of members of this species.

Biochemistry
The chief chemical constituents are alkaloids and steroidal lactones. These include tropine and cuscohygrine. The leaves contain the steroidal lactones, withanolides, notably withaferin A, which was the first to be isolated from the plant. Tropine is a derivative of tropane containing a hydroxyl group at third carbon. It is also called 3-tropanol. Benzatropine and etybenzatropine are derivatives of tropine. It is also a building block of atropine, an anticholinergic drug prototypical of the muscarinic antagonist class. Cuscohygrine is a pyrrolidine alkaloid found in coca.There are also alkaloids ashwagandhine, ashwaganidhine, and somniferine, all of which have been identified exclusively in the ashwagandha plant.Owing to the action of these chemicals Aswagandha is known to have anti-hypertensive, hypolipidaemic, hypoglycemic and tranquilizer effect. Ashwagandha is a very good anti oxidant and acts as a cardiac tonic. It improves strength of cardiac muscles.

Vitis vinifera
Commonly known as Draksha in Ayurveda, Vitis vinifera is a vine belonging to the Vitaceae family. The fruits of this plant are known as Grapes and are used worldwide in the manufacture of grape wine etc. The fruits are also edible in their natural form. Fruits are also used in several Ayurvedic formulations.

Biochemistry
Isoprenoid monoterpens, acyclic linalool, geraniol, nerol, citronellol, homotrienol and monocyclic α-terpineol as glycosides. Carotenoids accumulate in ripening grape berries. Oxidation of carotenoids produces volatile fragments, C13-norisoprenoids. Odoriferous compounds, such as β-ionone, damascenone, β-damascone and β-ionol. Tetrahydro-carbolines are indole alkaloids occurring in grape to a low amount and contributing to its antioxidant power. Melatonin, an alkaloid, has been identified in grape. Besides phenolics, stilbenoids and anthocyanins are also found in different varieties of grapes. Catechin, Epicatechin, B- Sitosterol, Ergosterol and Jasmonic acid are also seen. Resveratrol – a type of phenol, found in grapes has some evidence against heart diseases and cancer.As per Ayurveda, Vitis vinifera effects the following:

Ardraka – Wet Ginger – Rooksha (Dry) + Ushna (Hot)Shunti – Dry Ginger – Snigdha (unctuous, oily) + Ushna (hot)Wet ginger is dry and dry ginger has some oiliness or unctuousness in it.Wet ginger – Bhedini – can cause diarrhoea or more useful in constipation.Dry ginger – Grahi – absorbent, bowel binding, useful in IBS. It also relieves constipation, but not so useful as wet one in relieving constipation.Wet ginger is usually used for short period of time.
