Ashwagandha is one of the most highly regarded and commonly used adaptogens in the traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine.
Adaptogens support the ability of an organism to cope with stress and thereby conserve energy.
Ashwagandha rejuvenates and tonifies the entire system, especially the endocrine and immune systems. It is sometimes referred to as “Indian Ginseng” or "Winter Cherry". The translation of Ashwagandha is roughly, “the smell and strength of a horse”, alluding to its aphrodisiac properties. Eastern and Western herbal medicine use the dried root. Typically it is prepared as a tea decoction, liquid herbal extract or in herbal capsules form. Dried crushed or powdered roots can be applied to food or directly consumed.
In Ayurveda, it is considered one of the best herbs for calming vata. It is said to help calm the nervous system and focus the mind. It is a warming herb, perfect for an imbalanced Vata.
