Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb which has been repeatedly shown to be effective at quelling anxiety, improving a person's response to stress, and having neuroprotective properties. There is even some evidence that it may increase physical performance, as well.
Here's one study (randomized double-blind, placebo controlled, etc) showing Ashwaganda's effectiveness in reducing stress and anxiety:
Conclusion: "The findings of this study suggest that a high-concentration full-spectrum Ashwagandha root extract safely and effectively improves an individual's resistance towards stress and thereby improves self-assessed quality of life."
Another scientific overview can be found here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3252722/
Conclusion: "The available scientific data support the conclusion that Ashwagandha is a real potent regenerative tonic (Rasayana of Ayurveda), due to its multiple pharmacological actions like anti-stress, neuroprotective, antitumor, anti-arthritic, analgesic and anti-inflammatory etc. It is useful for different types of diseases like Parkinson, dementia, memory loss, stress induced diseases, malignoma and others."
