Withaferin A is a promising anticancer constituent of Ayurvedic medicinal plant Withania somnifera. Withaferin A showed potent cytotoxicity against human head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (JMAR and MDA-1986). Withaferin A has recently been found to be a leptin sensitizer that can reduce the weight in obese mice fed in a high-fat diet (see C249500).
