Studies were conducted to quantify the biologically active ingredients, i.e. withaferin-A and withanolide-A, in Withania somnifera from different climatic zones in Madhya Pradesh, India. The concentration of withanolide-A varied from 0.0051 to 0.0380%, with an average value of 0.0218% and that of withaferin-A varied from 0.0038 to 0.0396%, with an average value of 0.0206% by weight of shade-dried roots of W. somnifera.
