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.
In Ayurveda, it is considered one of the best herbs for calming vata.
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.

I started preparing this as a tea, drinking 2x per day. This herb has recently replaced a medication i have been on, for insomnia and anxiety for the past 5 yrs.
