Ashwagandha root, also known as Indian Ginseng and Winter Cherry, is a powerful adaptogenic herb based in Ayurvedic medicine. Traditionally, Ashwagandha has been used for over 3000 years to help reduce the effects of stress and anxiety, increase energy, boost cognitive function and improve concentration and focus. In Sanskrit, Ashwagandha means “smell of a horse” referring to its ability to increase strength, endurance and stamina.
In Ayurvedic medicine, Ashwagandha is considered a top “Rasayana” herb for its incredible rejuvenating benefits, anti inflammatory properties and stress protective activity. Ashwagandha root supports hormonal health in men and women, enhances libido, restores adrenal health and promotes a healthy quality of life.
