Figure 3: Effect of ashwagandha and shilajit on chronic ethanol intake. (a) Changes in the ethanol intake before and after treatment. Ashwagandha (500 mg/kg), shilajit (50 mg/kg), ashwagandha + shilajit, and diazepam-treated animals showed a significant decrease in ethanol intake compared to untreated ethanol consuming control animals from day 28 (P < 0.001 n = 7) or after 8 days of treatment. (b) Changes in ethanol intake on day 28 of the 30 days study. All treatment groups showed significant (P < 0.001) decrease in alcohol intake. (c) Change in the water intake before and after treatment. Ashwagandha (500 mg/kg), Shilajit (50 mg/kg), Ashwagandha + shilajit and diazepam-treated animals showed a significant increase in water intake compared to untreated ethanol consuming control animals from day 28 (P < 0.001 n = 7) or after 8 days of treatment. (d) Change in alcohol intake on day 28 of the 30 days study. All treatment groups showed significant (P < 0.001) increase in water intake. Values represent mean ± standard error of the mean n = 7
